That all depends on the back spacing of your wheels.

37's and 4.5" of lift works great with 9-10" wide wheels with 5-5.5" of backspace. 14" wide wheels regardless of backspace will present some serious challenges. You would probably need about 8" of lift to clear those.

Here's my 08 on 37's with a Pure Performance 4.5" Triple Threat kit:

Dynatrac | Flo Pro Exhaust| aFe Power | S&B | BMF | Fuel | Air Dog | Amp Research
Trailready Wheels | Spicer | ARP | REV-X | RIGID Industries | KD Fabworks | Baja Designs

If the nackspacim is the same it shouldnt matter right? I mean 4.5 inches of backspace is the same on all wheels right

Running that wide of a wheel and that much backspacing, your going to scrub like hell!! Im lifted 6" 20x12 -44 wheels, 35" tires and If I turn all the way and hit a decent bump it will scrub the rear fenderwell SLIGHTLY. I want to run 37's, but I know I will have to do some major trimming.

With only lifting 4.5" Id go no more then a 10" wide wheel. Or run a 33" tire if you HAVE to run such wide wheels on such small lift..lol

They fit perfect with a certain tire and wheel combo......Read the wheels he was thinking of using. He wouldnt hardly clear with a 6" lift with that offset and be functional
