You can fit 35/12.50's under a leveled truck, just have to get the backspacing right, the coil front ends don't rub or not as much as the leaf fronts do, can't remember which.

I bought some cheap eBay 2.5 or 3" spacers for the font. And blocks to matcht for the rear, clears 35's fine. With stock back spacing, and a tire upward of 11.5" wide, you'll rub the radius arms just a little, but aftermarket back spacing is fine with a couple inches of lift. I did also kinda fold back the inner fender liner in the back.of the front wheelwells, just under the front door hinge area, folded it back a hair, and tied it off with zip ties, looks clean, factory like from the outside.

I'm also curious, by logic you'd think that if stock to 2" of lift will clear a 35, you'd think 4-4.5" would clear 37's, but i think it might take more than that, like 5-5.5" to clear without rubbing. Any thoughts on this...not to derail your thread here.

The answer typically lies in the backspacing of the wheel. You can clear 37s on OEM wheels (though technically most 37s are too wide for oem wheels - another story) with just a 2.5" leveling kit. Change the wheels to ones that stick further out than the OEM ones and then you need more lift to clear the tires....

4.5" lift with 295/65/20's (35.5/11.50/20). I think they go together well.
