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:

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

You best bet is to figure out which route you want to go man. Do you want to spend the money on a lift? If yes, than do it. Buy whatever lift size you want, and match the tire size to it.

If you want to save the cash and do a leveling kit only, than don't expect to run a huge tire on a 22x12 wheel.

You've asked about every different tire/wheel/combo now... And most the answers to your questions about fitting are NO.

The last question, will 22x12's W/33"s Fit................................. You will still scrub, but it will ride.

22s and 33s looks stupid on a diesel truck, i mean you wont have any side wall at all. will have to worry about bending wheels on 22s me personally i wouldnt go no lower then 37s. i would do a 33 and 18 or 35 and 20
