37's...do or don't

Ok...what I have now is what seems to be a 4" level kit on my 08 4X4. It sits approximately 1" lower in the rear so I'm adding a 1" add-a-leaf to the rear instead of a 5" blocks and looking at getting 37" Toyo M/T's in the next few days. I have been told Toyo makes a 37 13.0X20 and may be getting thoughts instead of the 37 13.5X20's. Question is ...........will they clear? I know a little rub will occur which is fine. I just don't want to go out and have to get a 6" kit. Thoughts?

I rub with 37s and 6" lift after trimming. I have the toyo 37x1350x20. It rubbed on even the slightest turns before trimming. My vote would be no. You may be able to swing it if you have the right wheel. I have mazzi hulks. Someone who is good with backspacing and offset can chime in some more.

Well chit fuk! I don't want these tinny 35's anymore. Are you rubbing on the wheel well liner? You think 2" spacer would be alright? or is it more top and bottom?

Sharp looking truck! I rub on the plastic and the bumper when i hit a bump. I'll be honest, i drilled a hole in the plastic and have the fenders ziptied and pulled back towards the body as tight as possible too.

If you go with a 12.50 on those stock wheels you might be able to make them fit but idunno about the 13.50. Surely someone with that setup will chime in as i know people have done 37s on a levling kit with stock wheels.

More importantly than tires is your wheel of choice width and offset.

37x13.5x20's will fit with your 4" kit. I run a 3.5" leveling kit on 37x13.5x20's but i'm on stock wheels. as long as your running stock wheels, you shouldn't have any issues. I only rub at full lock to the right and left on the radius arms. lots of guys run 37's on 2.5" leveling kits also. if you're running aftermarket wheels.. it will rub.

I just found out I have a 2.5 leveling kit so only the front has been brought up. Guess thats why the rear sages 1" and I'm putting in 1" add-a-leafs. So all in all I should be fine? I was told yesterday that toyo made a 37.13X20...I'll be looking into that. I knew you had the 37's on a 3.5" lift but i forgot your screen name. LOL

No. Everything runs perfect. I keep the tire rotated and they wear nice. Toyo only makes there 37x13.5x20 nitto makes the 37.12.5x20's is that what your thinking about ??? I'm considering the mottos as my next set
