How bad are they going to rub

I picked up a 4" lift for my truck and so I'm lowering the truck. I've got someone wanting to buy the lift so I'm swapping asap but still haven't found a smaller set of wheels and tires. So my question is how bad are my 37s going to rub with the 4" lift. Until I find a deal on some 35s. Am I going to be able to drive the truck without tearing the fenders and bedsides off every bump and turn. I'm hoping just for a few weeks but I'm just trying to get an idea of how bad it's going to be before I pull the trigger then can't drive my truck home.

If you've done please give me your experience and if you have pics that's even better

Thanks

They are 37x13.5r20 on a 10" wide wheel. I had 38x15.5 and they rubbed the leafs. These don't come close I'm not looking to wheel the truck while I have these tires on with that lift just looking to drive it back and forth to work and school even if they rub at lock I could deal with it for a while

I wanna say they are 4.5" backspace they came on the truck. The tires stick out about 2.5-3" from the fenders.

I have a 4 to 4.5 lift and my 37x12.5x20 on 20x10 wheels with 4.75 BS dont even come close to fitting. The rub the rear of the front fender like nobodies business.

I am still running my factory 20's with factory tires until PMF sends the new lift...

Ya you might want to consider gblauf's wheels. I really think youre goin to rub. Like. Alot. I did the math. You are -25 offset. Thats great for an 8inch lift, but 37s -25 offset on 4 inch lift, just hope you dont have to park. Wish I had better news
