6" and 37s

So I want to go to 37s on my truck but I'm not sure if they will fit. I'm wanting to run 20x12 wheels and 37" toyos on it not sure how much I can turn with them before they hit the fender or should I just go ahead and lift it another 2" for them to fit?

That will all depend on what the depth of the wheel is when mounted... i was running 315/70r16s (ruffly35x12s) on a factory hight on my 99.5 and had to change my wheels and they just barrely touched. with a 6" lift you should fit 37"s course 8" lift could be more fun

my Nitto's 37/12.50/20 & 6" lift rub when im going over rough terrain and definately when im turning and driving through a field etc... But as far as daily driving, there is no rubbing....you can look at my pics to get an idea...I dont know about your state but mine has height limits and 8" lift would probably come close to going over that limit...
