4.5 Carli vs 6in to run 37 help

Hey guys I have pulled the trigger for the 2.5 king carli system 4.5 in lift with all the upgrades stainless shocks steering airbags. I'm going to be running a 37x-13.50 tire they guys at carli said no problem with a 20x9. Now not that I don't trust the great guys at carli but I thought a 4.5 sounded low... My buddy just lifted his 2012 with a 6in bds to clear 37s and they don't clear by much... What am I missing or what's the diff that a 4.5 carli does what every other company's says u need a 6in to clear 37s....

Thanks for the help in advanced I have a ton on money invested into this kit that is supposed to arrive mid April. And am worried my 37s will rub.

Ps the guys at carli were great to talk to and customer service was top notch. I just never really got an answer on this lol.

37's will be fine with the right size wheel, offset/backspace. I am guessing your buddy with the 6" lift bought some ridiculous offset wheels.

There are a bunch of guys with the 4.5" carli lift that run 37's on this site. Im sure they will chime in here shortly. I run 35's but am gonna go 37's once its time for me to buy new tires. Seems like running a 9" wide tire with 0 offset 5-5.5" backspace is key to making the 37's fit. Honestly from what Ive seen 90% of guys with the carli lift are running 37's so I dont think you'll have a problem. But thats just what Ive seen

I have a pintop 4.5 and run 35's due to my wheels offset. With an offset close to factory you can run 37's

Wrong. A +40 offset with 37s will not work.

I run 37in trail grapplers on 20x9 Bmf novakanes that are 0 offset and 5 inch back spacing. Tires clear fine after I spaced the front bumper forward .25" now it doesn't rub anything.
