Room for 38 13.50 20s on a 2008

I have a 2008 F250. I'll be using a 6" Pro Comp Stage 2 with full leafs and radius arms. I have a set of Moto Metal 962s 20x9 0 offset 5" backspace. I was going to use 37 13.50 20 Toyo M/Ts. They are on what seems to be permanent backorder though. I can get a great price on some 38 13.50 20 Toyos . Toyo says they are 37.7" tall vs 37" Think they will fit? Maybe add a 1" coil spacer?
Anybody run 38 13.50s on a 6" kit?

Check the Carli thread, looks like a lot of guys are running 37" MT's with the Carli 4.5" kit.

I've been looking though that. Wish I could have sprung for the Carli kit... The key looks like the wheel choice. I don't even have my factory wheels. Need to use the ones I have. Lol

They will fit but barely. I have 38/15.50/18 Toyo MT and they fit with a 6" lift.
Was too close for me do I went with 7" of lift for better clearance

The 15.50s are wide! If you cleared 38 15.50s on a 2006 I should be ok. 08-10s have a little more front wheel well room. May go with the extra 1" spacer for insurance.

I forget my backspace, think its 4.5" it was as far inside as I could go. They will rub radius arms at full lock a bit. But I wanted to keep my tires under fenders, don't like the tires hangin out of fenders look at all.

Even though I am running 15.50 width they are pretty much all under the fenders. May have 1-1/2 of tire past body line.

With 6" of lift you can rub in a turn if you hit a big enough of a bump ( suspension travel ).
Was enough for me to get I-Con progressive 7" springs. The improvement in the ride made it a worth the money investment. If I go with 365/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers 36.69/14.05/18 I will cut 1"-2" off of the coils. Truck is little higher than I like.

08 and up - 4" will allow for 37's all day long. 6" will allow for 38x13.5 all day long!
