37 inch tires?

I'm new to the site and thus far haven't been able to find an answer for what i'm wondering. I want to know if you can run 37x13.5x20 or 22 on an 06 F350 with only a 4 inch lift. I would go with 35's, however I really want the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 tires but I can only find 37 inch sizes and I don't want a lift any bigger than 4 inch due to being a daily driver for my company. So if anybody can help point in the the right directions it would be very much appreciated.

Cut out flares maybe.

It also might depend upon the backspacing and how much of a turning radius you want to give up.

I think about anyway you would try to work that it would rub no matter what... I have a 8' lift and I still rub a little with 37's but that is only when I turn it as hard as I can...

i dont think you are gonna be able to fit 37's on a 4'' lifted truck. i have a 6'' with 37x13/50x18 Toyo M/T's and come real close to rubbing, i also do rub a little bit on the leafs, but that is because i dont have an offset rim.

You can as long as you don't need to turn. I have a 6" and 37's rub more than I like.

+1 more for its gonna rub.... im running 37" tires on an 8" lift and still rub at full turn... i know its diff because we run leafs up front but with a 4" lift youll have to do some cut out fenders like marty suggested and some off-set wheels to make them fit and you might still rub

Yeah, forgot about that. I rub on the fenders with a 6" lift and I have offset rims.

6" of lift and 37X12.50's here and no rubbing but VERY close when I turn and have the truck flexed up a bit. Close enough that I will be trimming the bumber here before too long. I say 37's and 4" of lift probably will not work.

Yah I pretty much figured that would be the case, I was just hoping it could maybe just maybe happen so I could run those tires. I'll probably just end up going with a 2 to 3 inch lift with 35's on 20's.

Thanks for the imput tho guys, I'm sure I'll have more questions to come as I'm just new with the power stroke. I actually don't even have my truck yet, hopefully sometime this week, but of course I've gotta start planning everything.
