37s on a 2.5 inch leveling kit

can it be done? I want to put some 37x12.5x18s on my 04 Lariat 4x4. I'm sure this question has been asked a billion times but I didn't find the answer after going through several pages in this forum. If not, will 35s fit?

I have 37x13.5x18 with 9" rims on a 6" lift - even with lots of cutting and prerunner fenders, I still rub occasionally. 2.5", no way.

I have decent amount of tread left on my 33s, NItto Terra Grapplers but are starting to spin/slide on wet pavement so I was looking to buy new/bigger tires. Looks like the 37s are quite pricey. I guess I'll just go with 35s unless I get a lift on my truck. Thanks for the replies.

A 35x12.5 is a tight fit with just a leveling kit but they will clear on a stock wheel or an aftermarket wheel with close to stock specs. I have them on 17x8 wheels with a 5 1/2" backspace and no rubbing.

MercedesTech, thank's for the compliment's. The wheels I have the tires on now 17x8's with 5 1/2"BS give me a good bit more room than on my 17x9 wheels that had 5" BS. No more rubbing when turning and I really have to do some serious offroading to make them rub. I had to do some minor trimming with the first set of wheels so I have a little more room up front for the setup I have now.

I run with a 6" superlift set up, Im not sure if they make one for a 4 x 2 though. 37's would be extremely tight with my 4.5" B/S wheel and Im up 9" total.

I would think that the width of a 37" would cause more problems than the extra inch of tire in the wheel well. The average 37" is at least 13.5" wide and that's a big tire. Good luck even running 35" tires, unless you run them on the stock wheels.
