35s or 37s

I'm looking at upsizing tires and wanted to know what those with 35s or 37s on their 6.4 think. I don't tow a ton so that isn't an issue...no kids...just the wife and I. If you could do it all over again what would you go with 35s or 37s...and why?

What are your suspension mods and wheel size?

I'll be putting on a leveling kit and 2" rear spacers; stock 17" dually wheels

Oh damn, I didn't notice you had a dually. I have 35's on my SRW, I don't know much about the wheel/tire world of dually's. I guess FYI, I've got a 2" leveling kit and the rest is a factory F350 suspension and with the factory 20's and 35's I love the ground clearance, look and wheel well fitment. I would 100% do this again for the reasons listed before and because the price of 35's are cheaper than 37's. Don't know if this helps at all but it's all I got!

Thanks for the info man. It is great to be able to share info back and forth. I'm a little peeved as the Goodyear MTRs I would like in 37s are backordered as are the 315 GY Duratracs (best tire on the market IMO). I ran those Duratracs on my last truck and absolutely loved them. The price difference between the 35s and 37s is roughly 450-500 so it's a good bit of money but I REALLY like the look of a big *** dually

I originally wanted to run the Duratrac's on mine too, but they only came in a stock type size. I wanted to over size and get a beefier look and ended up with some 295/65/20 Trail Grappler's. A few years ago I had some Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors and they were an excellent tire, I just needed something more aggressive for the mud which is why I was looking for the Duratrac's.

I'll tell you what on my Dmax those Duratracs were amazing! I mean amazing...I live in SoCal so they saw rain, sand, mud, lots of highway miles, a 10k mile round trip to AK and back and lots of snow in the mountains here and performed flawlessly. They were on the truck when I sold it and had probably around 40k on them and a good 15k or so left from the looks of it. If only they made them in 37s...those tires are the only thing I will run if I'm going 35s.

I don't have a DRW, but my factory tires are 34's, so I would imagine 35's wouldn't be a huge jump

On a DRW the stock tires are 245/75r17 so about a 31" tire...so either way it'll be a big difference for me
