Im wondering if this really works? I have heard of people running 37x13.5s with only a 4" lift, and it looks really cool.....Anyone on here done this? I was thinking of maybe getting a pro comp 4" lift, or a tough country 5" lift just to be on the safe side... Im currently running 33x12.5 maxxis buckshots on leveling kit, and have run 35x12.5 buckshots with the leveling kit without any problems... My wheels have a -8 offset, will the 37s rub real bad?

CSIPSD also has a 4" lift with 37's.... It is all about the offset in the rims!

Tank, your truck looks great!
I was thinking maybe a 4" lift with 35x12.5s at first, but I am very worried about them looking too small ( I was very dissapointed after buying a leveling kit to clear 33x12.5s just to find that they looked tinier than the stockers). On the other hand Im not a fan of the tires rubbing all the time, and do go wheelin at least once a week.

One other question.....I have a 16x8 wheel right now. If a I put a 35x12.5 tire on it, will the tire be bigger than if i were to mount it on a 16x10 rim? or smaller? or the same?

I am running 37's with 6" lift. I have slight rubbing with BFG KO series at full turns only. These KO's have a wide foot print btw.

You can fit 37's on a leveled 05+ with stock wheels. If you go with stock wheels you should be able to fit 37's on a 4" lift. Hell if I had a 99-04 truck I would find a way to fit 37's with just a leveling kit. Once again its all about the wheel offset. I'm still kicking myself in the azz for getting aftermarket wheels. I can only fit 35's because of them.

you can fit 37" tires with a 4" lift 16x10 would make it smaller

Tank can you fit 37s with a leveling kit and the flares?
With flares,...yes...but even then it all depends on which wheel and tire combo you choose.


On 05+ you can fit 37's on stock wheels with a leveling kit and no cut outs.
I would love to see a pic of that ,..If you have one.

Because I don't think it's possible....not if the tires actual measurement is 37".....If it is a show truck, that never actually gets used,...maybe....because I'm damn positive it can't go off-road.


My truck....36" with no lift...pic taken right before I started cutting the fenders for the Bushwackers.

Tank,
In that second pic, is that green primer on your foul weather jacket? Man, I wish I still had mine; not that it ever gets real cold around here, I just really liked my FW jacket.

My sisters truck was leveled with 37's long story short it has a 6" lift now. Not because of clearance but do to death shakes. I've been searching the org for 2 hours now trying to find a 2005 or 2006 F250 that has 37's with a level suspension.
