35's or 37's

Doing a 6 inch lift on my 2012 F-250, should I do the 35x12.5's or the 37x13.5's??

Thought? Post pics if you have them. Thanks!

35's fit with a leveling kit and I think wouldn't look right with a 6" so my vote is 37's

37's will fit and look better on a 6" but stay with a 9" wide wheel with 0 offset or a + offset to make them fit.

I have 37s on a 10 inch wide wheel -24 offset. No rub. That being said, I went from a 34.5" terra grappler to the 37x13.5 Toyo mt and am unpleasantly surprised by how loud they are and how much horsepower they suck up. Feels like I lost 100 hp. And I dropped 2 mpg. I'd go with an at if you go 37.

wont matter if it's a mud terrain or all terrain, if you go to a bigger larger diameter and wider wheel and tire you will loose hp and mpg's, the increase in weight, overall final drive ratio and rolling resistance will have a negative effect on all of those. Lower ring and pinion gears will help some but cant overcome the added weight and rolling resistance.

Definitely 37's will fit and look right on a 6" lift.

Go with the 37x12.50. Perfect look for a 11-14 with 6" lift.

2005 37's with a 9" wheel + 18 offset with a 6" lift is the exact fit as stock with stock ride height and tires....

I've had numerous sets of 35's with ICON 4.5" and on my 2nd set of 37's with same ICON 4.5" + 2" Spacer and 5" Rear blocks.

PM if you want pictures.
