no. i have 18" rims with 275 that rub on my 2000. 37x12.5 will not be good for stock rims. they are to wide and will wear bad. actually i dont even think they can be mounted.

they can be mounted...but he is right...they are too wide and it would be dangerous.... bigger tires are not meant to be run on stock wheels.....
