Arrow Will 37's tuck?

Hey guys my 99 F250 has a 3 inch front shackle kit on it and I'm running 35 inch mud grapplers on the stock wheels (yes they rub a little on the leaf springs). I'm wondering if I can or if anybody out there has tucked some 37's under a set up like this and if so what back spacing on wheels are you running? Thanks for any help!

A larger tire is going to rub more. You can try to find a wheel with a lower offset/ backspace than what you have now but that may create issues with rubbing the outside of your fenders. 37's are just plain big, I'd recommend looking into a little more lift or some aftermarket, higher clearance fenders if you don't want to hack your stock fenders up.

What he said.

Wanting to run 37s with just an 3" leveling kit is ambitious at best. On top of the clearance issues, that minimum 12.50 wide is a might broad for a stock wheel. I have 315s on 10s and have to run 45 psi or they stand up in the center. I didn't pay a grand for a set of BFGs to ride on the center 6 inches.

IMHO, for 37s I'd do a minimum 6.5 lift and a 10 inch wheel 4.25 or 4.5 backspace on a 99-04. a 12 inch wheel if you run 13.5 or 14.5 wide.

Been there done that with 14.50s, but that's another rant.

Ebay has some 3" hangers for 125 now, they are actually 4.5" hangers sold without shackles, those plus your 3" shackles, brakelines extended bumpstops adjustable trac bar, and brakelines would clear 37"s on 9" wheels with 5" backspace with minor rubbing. I just got a pair for my 04, are your shackles 3" lift? or 3" length over stock for 1.5" lift? Also make spacers to move the bumper 1.5" foreward, an relocator plates to move the axle foreward 3/4" will help.

Ive run 37's on my 1999 f250 2000 f350 2002 f350 and 2010 f250 and I have never lifted any of my trucks the only place it rubs is on the spring 99-04 and the control arm 05-10 just move your bumper forward about an inch and trim your inner fender. I take my trailers off road to unload construction debris. and its not smothe road its a pasture not even smothe enought to be a field. But to each his own everybody has their own opinions about everything so ask around and look at a few trucks in person is my advise. oh and I run the cheap military tires because they hold weight well and dont cost much when I run over a 2x6 with nails in it. on the older tucks 99-04 I ran 9.75 wide with a 4.5 backspaceing and on the 05-10 8.25 wide and 3.5 backspaceing

Thank you very much for the information bbtruck! Hey man you don't by chance have any pictures of your older leaf spring trucks do you?
