38x15.50x20?

I have a 99 250 that i bought last year. im running 37x13.50x20 mud grapplers now. the original owner told me it has an 8" pro comp lift. I only rub the leaf spring at full turn. I picked up 3 38x15.50x20 toyo open country mts for a pretty good deal the other day so i was wondering if i would be safe to buy a new 4th tireand run them or sell the 3 now? My wheels are diamo 17 Karat whees and i believe they are 20x10 cause i havent seen a 20x12 diamo. Any input would be appreciated! im gonna try and get a pic for bettter reference

A buddy of mine used to have a truck like your but black. He was running the nitto mud grapplers too 38/15.50/20 they were 20x10 as well the commando's if my memory serves me right. He scrubbed the leaf springs at full turn as well. I say you go for it if your already rubbing a little bit. Maybe later on down the road you get some spacers and thight might help. But I would talk to someone and see if it would really help to have the spacers. But like I said I say you go for it

Here is my old 03 with an 8" superlift and 38x15.50 toyo's. Only rubbed the leafs at full lock. All depends on the offset of the wheels.

I have an 8" and im running 40's. I dont have much offset so I am running 2" wheel spacers, I have no rubbing on the leafs at all. I do rub in the back of my wheel well under full compression when im turning hard but not often.
NIce looking truck!!!

Thanks! The picture of my old blue truck was a 15.50 on a 9" wide wheel.

Dang really!? I was told by some people that i should only run them with a 12" wide. How did that 9" wide wheel work for you?

Never had any wear issues whatsoever. I rotated them every other oil change. I also had people tell me I couldn't run a 13.50 on a 14" wide wheel. Don't always believe what you hear, especially on a forum board.

Not my truck, but I detailed this truck at work. It had an 8" BDS lift with 38x15.50r20 Mickey Thompson MTZ's and I believe they were Diamo wheels as well!
