Back spacing

hi everyone im running a 4 inch lift right now, still on stock rims and 35x12.5 tires, im wanting to go to a 37x13.5 tire, is that a possible thing with backspacing and maybe spacers or something, i have been looking around alot for an answer and havent found one yet

You'll have better luck with 37 12.5
Space the bumper forwards a little bit
Minor inner fender trimming
I think a 9" wheel with 4.5 or so backspace would be ideal, but i could be wrong.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.
