i can fit 33's on stock height 250, you should be able to clear them with little effort, i think abother member is running 36's on his stock height 350 cclb 4x4

37's will clear no problem. I'm running a 4" lift and 35" tires. Going to 37's next time for sure.

Thanks for the comments. Looking at the BFG 37 12.5 R17. Any suggestion on the rim spacing needed? I don't mind trimming my bumper, but don't want to have these skinnier tires stick out like crazy.

I have a 6" lift, and my 35's rub HARD when I turn to sharply. I cant turn anywhere near full lock.

My first thought would say not much more than a 4" lift. However I don't have a tape measure or your truck in front of me.

I've got a 4" on my f350 and 37's Clears no problem with my old wheels, new wheels are a bit less offset so they rub on the leafs at full lock. the more offset, you'll have less trouble, but I'd just personally rather my tires be more under my truck than outside the fender well

85-305, that's your rims man. My buddy ran 37-13.50 on stock rims...(i know, bad) on his 96 with 4in lift. Then he got some incubus rims and put some 35-12.50 toyos and had the same problem, they rubbed so bad he couldn't hardly turn. He sold tires and rims to a guy with a dodge and put the stockers back on with 37's again.
