37" Tire options for 16.5" rim

I am going to get some 37" tires for my superduty that has the stock 16.5 in rims. I am looking for something other then the super swampers. I am not into flashy chrome, I could care less about rims so I don't really want to upgrade to 17's. What options are there I cant find anything anywhere online. If someone knows of any please let me know. I have a 6in lift and I want 37's under there. If you have pics of this setup please post. Thanks

Mickey Thompson a baja claw thats 16.5 but its a 38x16x16.5

But you would probably have to have a 16.5x14 wide rim to make it look right.

The Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip's are pretty nice tires depending on what you want them for. They're great in sand and loose dirt, but they don't clean out all that well in mud. They ride great on the highway though, and wear good as well. I ran the 37x12.50R16.5s on my beater truck for about 25k miles, and I'd say they're still half tread or a little more.
