    4\" of lift, 37\"s, and an 87 3/4 ton Sub ?

    Hey, this question is for my little brother. He's not concerned about wheeling, so flex isn't the issue, just driveability. I believe he is looking into a TRUE 37, ie, swamper, SSR's, PJ, blah blah blah... So anyways, will these little hogs fit?

    by the way, they will be 37x12.5x16's, maybe even a wider 36???

    I actually want you guys to say no, that way he won't have a bigger truck than me...

    Is he planning on trimming the fenders. I'm no expert but I don't think it will fit. I think you would rub every timr you turned & hit a bump. Not sure though.

    heres a pic of what mine looks like it's *about* 4 inch lift and they are the 37 SSR's (BTW mine aren't true 37's) but for street i might be ok but i will trim soon.

    That's the key phrase here. If he ain't wheeling it, then he will have no problems fitting 37's.

    Tell your brother to go with a 10" superlift kit, that will look good in my opinion . I'm not a big fan of big tires stuffed in the fenderwell /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif They will probably rub especially if he runs a wide rim, might be ok with a 16x8 though. I have 35x16x16.5 boggers on 16.5x14 weld typhoons with 9" lift and I think it looks great. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I have a 4" suspension and 1" body running 37" MTRs (truly a 36.5"
    with lots of fender trimming.

    I couldn't turn my 35" BFG ATs tires, with a 4" lift, full lock on the street without nipping the bottom corners of the fenders.

    He'll have to do some cutting.

    I had my 33x12.50s on 15x10 wheels on my truck with no lift. It rubbed when braking hard with the steering wheel turned the right amount. When wheeling, I didn't turn much except on flat ground. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Now that my truck is up 4" it doesn't rub except if I'm turned just right and run over something (like a parking lot barrier) but it still rubs during "street" driving so I'd say he's going to have to do some cutting. Probably the bottom six inches on the back of the fender and the bottom 4" on the front of the fender.
