What tire do you recommend?

I am planning on putting on a 6 inch lift soon. I want 37x12.50x20 nitto trail grappler tires. Will they rub bad or at all? Would I be better off with 35x12.50x20? Will the 37s be fine since they are only 12.50?

I do not see what year your truck is but I run that on my 02 and they only rub the bottom of the bumper slightly while turning and flexing. Wheel offset plays a part in this I think also. And I also have the bumper spaced about 3/4 of an inch. I may one day space it out more.

I'm running 325/65-18 on 18X10's with a 4" front and 2" rear lift. No rubbing what so ever. I would think you would be fine with the 37's on a 6".
