"Can I" Tire Size Question

I have an 09 F-250 4x4 CC and am ordering a 4.5" CST lift with 20x10, -19mm offset BMF Novakane wheels, "Can I" run 37x13.5x20 or 355x60x20 tires without any problems? Thanks for any help.

Hard to say without trying it. This tire is over 5" taller than your stock tire and over 3" wider.

Stock 20's are 34"s tall and most 37's are 36.7"s so it's way less than 5"s on the height maybe 3"s. many guys run 37's with a 2.5" leveling kit but you need the right wheel offset so you don't get rubbing. the 20x9" novakane's with 0 offset worked well for many here but the 10" with-19 will stick out a good amount.

Correct, I should have been more specific. Compared to the stock 17" wheel and tire option (265/70R17) this tire would be 5" taller and 3" wider. Sounds like he has enough lift for the 37" but the gray area is the wheels width and offset. Sometimes pushing the wheel out further causes additional rubbing. Keeping the wheel and tire tucked under the truck and located in the deepest part of the wheel well helps to reduce the chances of rubbing and/or the amount of modifications you need to make.

Yeah, I'm replacing the stock 20"s. I want the sticking out look, but dont any rubbing issues. With the 10" wheel and offset, Im looking at possibly rubbing on the fender or bumber? At 4.5 backspacing and the offset, there should be no way to rub on the inside? Thanks for all your help

Hopefully someone with this lift will chime in for you. If not, I can give you some numbers that you can use to measure off your stock set up once you have your lift installed.

If we can help you with your wheels and tires let us know. We should be able to order the BMF product in for you.

Can you PM me a quote? I got a pretty good deal from a southern Cal. dealer for the lift and wheels. Also really good shipping costs. Thanks

I am more than likely buying tires from my local Discount so I dont have to wait.
