Carli wheel and tire combo questions

Ordered a Carli pintop lift and am having trouble trying to figure out what wheel and tire combo would work on the truck and not rub. It is a 2012 f350 and right now I have 20" Vtec brutals with lt295/60r/20 terra grapplers. It does have bushwhackers on it.

I want to do a 37" terra grappler with a 20" rim. I am not too concerned with the ride being a little more harsh with a bigger rim. Just dont want any rubbing issues. Was thinking about the lt355/65r18d2.

Anyone have these tires with the Carli 4.5 system?

Here's a thread dedicated to wheel/tire combos on Carli systems.

Carli tire, wheel combos and pics

Basically, if your wheel is no more than 9" wide with anywhere from 5"-5.5" of backspacing, you'll tuck your 37's fine. 5" and you'll be nicely situated with your flares. 5.5", you'll be tucked in a bit more and rub the radius arm very slightly at full lock if you run a Toyo 37" x 13.5" mud terrain (Actual measurement 37" x 14.5"). Most 37's aren't true to size and will experience no rubbing issues so long as the above guidelines are followed. Rim diameter doesn't matter. Also note, the second tire you have listed (lt355/65r18d2) is for an 18" wheel, not 20".
