+1 for rubbing like no other.
37's are probably gonna be it for that lift. Otherwise major trimming or no turning at all, whichever your friend likes better

The Black Rockstars look pretty sick on just about any truck.

i had 39.5 TSL on my truck and i have an 8 in lift in the front . they never rubbed on my leaf springs, they did rub on the black piece of trim under the bumper that i had to take off. however my buddy has the same truck and his 37's rub on his 6in lift. i think it all depends on the truck, and the off-set of your rim. however i did just get 3in shackel's to lift the front to match the 10in lift in the back so i can put 42's under it. Good luck

(TSL's are a very rough riding tire, they wear fast and when they wear, they are thrown out of balance very easy. i dont recommend them but that is a personal preference. id you do go with them i do recommend making sure your front end is in perfect alignment)

i find it hard to believe 39.5 tires wouldnt rub unless you had a crazy offset and some spacers that pushed the tire out 3 or 4 inches. Or unless they were 39.5x10.50 or something..my 38s rub nicely on 16.5x12 m/t wheels making my turning radius wonderful...

what size tire do you start running into rub issues? my 35x12.50s dont rub the springs. im not sure of the offset but they fit inside the stock fenders on 18" rims

I think the main problem is offset and width. I have 6 inches of lift and run 37's and NO rubbing whatsoever. Ok...I'll admit, it smoothed out the very edge of the plastic trim on the bottom of the bumper one time when I had it flexed up a good bit while turning the wheel. Other than that, no rubbing. I would have to check to tell you the offset of the rims, but they don't stick out from the fender. Also, these are only 12.50 inches wide, so that helps too. As for the 39.5's. I have NO basis for this, and I would have researched first, but I would have thought they would fit...In fact, that was in my distant future plans for my truck....Hmmm....Now how much to lift it?? lol
