I've heard rumors of a 37 fitting on a stock height 350, perhaps with just a leveling kit but I've never personally seen it.

I'd get the tires, but have a lift kit on hand in case lol.

I would expect some degree of rubbing with 37's and stock height.

There are some guys running 37's on 3.5" lift trucks on stock rims with very little rub. On a stock height truck it will probably rub alot. 37's are going to hurt your MPG's more than 35's. Towing, it all depends how much you want to tow whether you will feel the effects of a 37 over a 35. That taller sidewall will create some stability issues vs a 35 while cornering and towing if the load is heavy, and you arent running max inflation

I have 22x11 wheels with a -24 off set and a 6 inch lift w/ 37x13.5x22 Toyo MT's....no rubbing on the suspension but it will rub the fender well if turning into a drive way or agressive turn with a dip or bump.
So if you're gonna keep the truck stock or leveling kit..Im gonna say no....35's should work with a stock system..they aren't much taller than factory tires ( 2 inches ).

Stock height on stock wheels with 35" tires is a SEXY look.
