37x12.50 or 13.50

Need some knowledge on wheel and tire combo. Wanting to go to 37's and was wondering if a 37x12.50 or 13.50 would work on my set up without rubbing. I have a 3.5" Ready Lift with 20x10 wheels. Would love the 13.50 if I can get away with it. At worst case I would like to run 13.50 on the 35's I have now if 37's will not work. All help is greatly appreciated

I am pretty new to this; but I think it will rub. I just got my truck and I have no rubbing. Only needed to trim the drivers side bumper bracket. Might work better with a 9" wheel and 35's. Good luck.

From what I understand you will need a minimum of a 6" lift to run 37's with a 20 x 10 wheel.

I have a 4.5 Carli kit on my truck with 20x10 fuels with a -20 offset I tried 37x13.50x20 Toyo MT and it rubbed so bad I couldn't even into a parking spot so we had to pull it back in the shop and do 35s the only way a 37 will fit and it will have to be a 12.50 is on a stock 20 inch wheel .

Thanks guys, appreciate the input. I have been told I needed 6" lift for this to work. You all are just my confirmation. Thanks again
Could I run 13.50 on my 35's without rubbing??? Again,,, 3.5 Ready Lift with 20x10 Novacanes with a (-14mm offset I think, I will have to check that again)

Yeah man from what I understand, you would need some heavy adjusting or "trimming" to avoid contact issues with that set up. Also, I don't recall seeing a manufacturer that makes a 35x13.50x20 sized tire.

I just had a 6 inch lift installed with some new 37x13.50x20 Toyos for my 20x10 rims and I barely noticed the difference in height from my previous 3.5 inch level kit. I don't know why I was expecting to feel a big difference given that I was only adding 3.5 inches (length of iPhone). I cleared a 7'4" car wash with my new lift and tires. I wonder what it would be like driving around on a 12 inch lift...

Anyway, if the only thing stopping you from doing a full 6" lift with 37x13.50x20 tires is the roof of your car-port, maybe you can remove one or two of the wood pilings from the side of the car-port you'll be entering from. Judging from your signature picture, that might be a possible solution towards getting the clearance you need to still fit under there. I've had to park my truck in the open with both the old leveling kit and the new lift kit. For a while, I didn't want to go with the full 6" lift because I thought the 37s would look too small with that much lift, but it looks better to me than it would with a smaller lift. Here is a good video that showed me what my truck would look like with the bigger lift and tires.




...By the way, to whom ever is interested, I'm selling Nitto Trail Grapplers 35x12.50x20 with less than 750 miles on them for $1200 (or maybe less).

it's pushing it, but just depends on the tire. m16's are a rounder tire so I think that's why mine fit.

here's what mine did look like. I know nitto makes a 35x13x22 that is pretty wide, but idk about for 20's. just look at the metric sized tires.



those 35's are actually wider than my 37x13.5x24 m16's.

ps I have them on 24x12's on a 4.5inch lift with no rubbing after a little trimming.

Wow...37" tires on 24x12 rims with a 4.5" lift. I don't recall ever seen that set up before. I bet it looks good from the side. You have any profile pictures of your truck?

I think it looks pretty good. I think the only way it's not rubbing bad is the m16s run a little skinny and they are rounder, not a block style tread like a toyo or nitto. I'm pretty sure it would rub bad with another tire.

I'll take a side picture tomorrow but here's the only one I have on my phone right now.

Nice! I think I've seen you post on another thread saying that you were going to customize those rims with some chrome accents. They look good now, but if you chromed out the spokes that'll really make those wheels come to life.
