tire fitment question 99 f250

I wanna run the 37" military take off tires

found here: 100Dollarman - Tires!

i would run these wheels: "16.5"" Polished Wheel Mickey Thompson Classic II 8x170" - Rims - Classic II - Polished - 8x170 - - 9.75 - 130.81 - -20

I saw a guy got away with 37s with a 2.5" leveling kit.

now i would do that and use the cut-a-away flares from bushwacker

think it will fit without rub on tight lock to lock turns?

here isthe guy with it leveled it rubbed on turns but would the bushwackers fix this?

From their forum, it was just for the fun of taking a photo. Looks like if you want to accomplish this, you're going to have to cut waaaay back into the fender and into the bumper (unless you get an aftermarket one). Anything is possible, but this is a permanent mod (unless you have a doner on the side) that most are not willing to do. You'll need a nice offset to keep from rubbing the leafs. Had 38" Grapplers on mine that rubbed like crazy. Decided not to do surgery and bumped it down to 35s.
