Help me decide... Tires

2011 F250 CCSB After years of indecision i ordered myself a 6" lift kit for my truck. Having never done this before I don't know really what to do. This is my daily driver that will rarely if ever see off-road.

Do I buy 37x12.5 or 35x12.5 and mount them on my existing wheels or do I buy all new wheels and tires 20x12 with either 37x12.5 or 35x12.5?

I really like the aggressive look of the wide wheels and not overly large tires but I don't know about ride quality. I like the look of mud tires but I don't care to spend $1400-$2000 every 15k on new tires. Will there be any adverse affect on my truck running a 37" tire? Can anyone recommend a good oversized tire that is designed for primarily road use?

Thanks for the help.

Well if it were me I would do 37's on a 10 or 12" wheel since you have ordered a 6" lift. My current truck is stock but I had an 04 with 6" lift, 37's on 17x10" wheels and loved it. Rode decent (lift was a procomp so not top end lift kit). It has plenty of power and this new engine has much more than the 6.0 did (not bashing). So, I say order up some aftermarket wheels, 37's in either the 12.50 or 13.50 config. I also had the toyo mt in a 35" tire before and it had great tread life. I traded the truck before they wore out but had about 35K on the tires and they had plenty of life left.

Good luck!

I hope your "existing wheels" are not the stock wheels...?

35's, 22x12, BDS 6 inch lift, a great ride and didn't lose that much power. You will not be disappointed with this set up.
