37 12.50 16.5 hummer tires on f250??????

hey i have been looking at running these goodyear military take off tires i can get for cheap only problem is idk if i have enough lift i have a 6in rouch country but i have 33s and there dosent seem to be a whole lot more room maby 3in from the side of the tire till i start hit my fender (the truck body)
and i dont mind triming the bumper but i dont want to touch my actual body
should these be able to fit? the back looks like no problem

is there anyone on here running the military tires with a 6in lift ??
how much room for flex do you have?
can you put up a good side shot of your truck
my friend said that going from a 33 to a 37 only adds 2in on each side of the rim is that ture?

thanks in advance!

you have 33s wit ha 6in lift? I'm not sure about a superduty but with a tiny bit more bumper trimming I could fit them stock height.
ya, your truck will be 2" taller because 37" is the diameter of the tire so half that is the radius

I dont know how much articulation you'll get but you should be able to fit them fine with a little bumper trim

I run them on my 97 F150 on 2002 D60/10.5" with very minor trimming. My dad runs 37"s on his 2000 PSD with a levelling kit.

My dads truck with leveling kit. 37" BFG KM2's


Heres the Military radials.

With those on a 6" lift you will rub the inner fender well if the wheel is turned and hit a bump. I also had to trim the bumper just slightly to clear.

we remedied the inner fender by drilling a new hole about 3/4" away from the old one for the plastic "rivet"
