I hightly doubt it. I just put 37's on my 6" lift and it rubs at full lock. I would assume you would need some big time trim'age!

There is a guy on here that runs 37" tires with a 2.5" leveling kit. He says he rubs at full lock. The tires looked like they are stuffed into the wheel wells. I will try and find his thread.

here it is 22x9.5 Fuel Hostages, 37x13.50 Toyo MT's, with just a leveling kit? Yes Sir.....

The problem I see for you, is the stock wheels are only 8" wide... I see Nitto makes a 35.5" tire for an 8" wide 20" wheel, but that is about the biggest.

He fit 37" tires with minor rubbing of the inner radius arm (at full lock). With a 2.5" leveling kit, and 9.5" wide wheels with a +20 offset.

They will NOT fit without a leveling kit.

And I would imagine you would have major rubbing issues on the outside edge of the tire with a 0 offset.

The diameter of the rim doesn't change anything for clearance. (Unless you were trying to go below 17", then you would have more issues).

Rim size doesnt matter. Width and offset is where you have to get it right. i cant comment on the sizes for those trucks. As close to stock offset will give you the best results....however tires like mud grapplers with super aggresssive lug patterns could cause some rubbing on the inside.
