what does it take to run 37's?

Ok, i have a stock 06 cc f250 and want to run 20x9 and 37x 13.5s. I will be pulling a fifth wheel so i am trying to stay as low as possible plus i seen a 2008 f250 that had a leveling kit and blocks in the rear that was running 20x9 rockstars and 37" 13.5 toyo mts and it was exactly the look i am going for, he said it did not rub. It will not be offroad in extreme situations so will that setup work for me or what is the minimum i have to do to run them, thanks for the help guys.

4" full suspension lift would do. you could run 37's on stock wheels with just a leveling kit but defientaly not with aftermarket wheels. the backspacing has alot to do with it as well

08s and up have much bigger wheel wells, good luck, watch out for speedbumps, i would say 6" min but your still going to rub, i have about 9" on 37s and ive hit all my fenders front and back

there was a big thread on here sometime last year about it i'll try and dig it up but it was a big debate on it you could run 37's or not without rubbing. some could and some couldn't. I've debated trying it and pinning the fender wells back
