2.5" Level with 37x13.50's on Stock wheels

Thanks to various guys on the forum for showing me that you can fit 37's with just a leveling kit. So, here is mine after I pulled the trigger. Level is a 2.5" Newton with 4.5" blocks in the back. Tires are 37x13.50's and Wheels are OEM 18's.

I had to pull the inner fenders back an inch or two. The tires will rub on the radius arms at full lock. The second picture is my truck sitting next to another F250 CCLB with stock tires and suspension.

Are your stock wheels 9" wide? I know the 11+ are only 8" wide! That is a very wide tire to rim ratio if it is.

I have 18x8's on my 10. Won't put 12.5" on them, certainly not 13.5.

that's way to much of of an angle for the side wall!

I'm looking at either 35x12.5 or 37x13.5 on 20x10 wheels. Planning on a 3.5" levelling kit to fit them...

Excellent point. The tires are too wide for the rims. In a long winded answer, that is kind of how I ended up with the 37's. When I originally purchased the truck used, it had 325/60 18 Nittos (33x13.50) that the used car dealer had put on it. I put 40K miles on those tires and never had a problem, but it always made me a little nervous. I wanted to go to 35's when it was time for new tires, but research showed that the 33's and 35's in 13.50 were recommended for a 9-12" rim. Then I noticed that the 37x13.50 were recommended for an 8.5-11" rim. So, I know I am still outside the recommended range, but closer than I was with my original tires, or 35's.

PS - The tires are Falken WildPeak AT's.
