37s on stock 16s

Is anyone running stock 16in wheels on a 37in tire? I am trying to save money by not getting new wheels right now but want larger tires. I currently have an 01 superduty on the stock 16s. I have 33s on it now. I know the wheels are only 7in wide and thinking maybe widest i could go would be 12.50s. And that would be pushing it. I found mud grapplers that are LT385/70R16. Anyone know if those would fit?



Heres a pic of the wheels

A 15 inch wide tire on a 7 inch wheel is a bad idea. I had 14.50 inch tires on a 10 inch wheel and they wore out the centers before the shoulders because I was a dummy and ran them at 50 psi. I wouldn't run a 385 (15") tire on anything less than a 12 inch wheel. Wheels aren't that much, I'd save up and buy some 16x12 wheels before I put that lift and 385/70s on.

mm/25.4 = inches
385/25.4 = 15.157
