    37\" tires how\'d you do it.

    For those running 37"/38" what did you have to do to run them? And how much did you have to trim?

    I have a 6" softride suspension lift and I can say that I don't have more than an inch to spare with 35's. I'd think an 8" lift would do the trick nicely...or a body lift.

    The trick is to buy them but leave them unmounted in your garage like me......no rubbing, and they'll last forever that way!

    Scorpion,

    Do you think the TSL SX's 35x15.50 would fit with the 6" softride. Full flex and all?

    Thanks,
    David

    I think you'd have a problem rubbing up front when turning the wheels because of the width of the tires. The lower part in the front of the wheel opening on the front fenders (where it comes to a point) seems to be an issue with a 6" and tires that are larger than 12.5" wide (I know this because mine are 12.5 Mud T/A's and the clearance is just enough). A little fender trimming would probably resolve it though.

    Im running 37 ssr's on 16x10 aluminum wheels with 8" superlifts. Ive rubbed the tires on the backside inner fenders thrashin on it at the dunes, but not too bad.
