'99 F250, 4" lift 37x13 tires

Found a good deal on a set of 37's locally on Craigslist...

I'm trying to figure out if I should go grab them.

Can I fit these 37" tires underneath my truck with a 4" lift?

I realize there's a good chance I'll be rubbing if they do fit, so what/where would I need to trim (if at all) to get these to fit pretty well?

I guess what I'm looking for, is should I go ahead and pick these up, or wait until I find some 35's?


Thanks!!!!

My truck is newer so i dont know the diff... but i have a 6" lift and my 37's rubbed pretty bad. i had my wheel wells cut under the trim and moved it all back about 1 1/2". they clear fine now and i cant even see where they did the work for $350! With a 4" lift idk?

nope... unless you do cut out fenders... they will fit pretty decent on a 6" lift but still rub a tad.... i had 37's on a 8" lift and they still rubbed on the leafs...

someone I remember has them, but I have no clue how they fit. My 33's have rubbed with a 4" lift.

I have 37 x 13.50's on my 04 F350 with a 4.5" lift and needed to do some cutting to ensure no rubbing. Can be done though....
