need opinions

Im getting ready to lift my truck and wonder if i should go with 35' or 37's? I will be using the stock 20" rims.. Still debating with the 295 65 20 trail gapplers or toyo mt.. I seen a truck with some 295s and it looked great.. whats your opinion on the 35's or 37s? also if i go with 37s i will be using the ready lift 3.5 leveling

Kenny,
I have Hankook M/T 315/70-17's on my 06 250, which is classified as a 35" tire, and they look great. I have the 2" Newton lift on the front and two homemade machined blocks on the rear. The rear blocks are roughly 1 1/8" thick, which puts me almost level, maybe a little high in the rear, but you can't see it. Have had no trouble clearing the tires so far. As for the 37's, I am not sure, but I know you can clear the 35's. Some on here say you can clear 35's on the stock 20's with no lift. but I don't know. BTW, my truck came with the stock 20's, but I bought a set of aftermarket wheels when I put the Hankooks on.

Depending on your backspacing 37's will rub big time on only 3.5" of lift. The 35's may rub too.

I think 2.5" with 35's would look real nice on the stock 20's
