37's on 4" lift

Anyone running that combo. Found a set 37x13.5 on 10" wheels. I don't reallywant to go to a 6" lift. Too hard to get in and out of the truck and load it also since its a work truck.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

You most likely will rub without any trimming.

Even some 6" lifts have slight rubbing with that combo.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

I have a 6" lift with 37" Toyo MT's on 20"x10" BMF, Had to trim the plastic on the bumper just a bit. Hope it works out for ya. If it does, it will look great.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

In theory since 35's fit on a 2in kit then 37's should fit on a 4in with some rubbing without trimming.I personally don't like the stuffed look but a lot of people do.Whats wrong with just running 35's?Its a good all around size and if you run a 18in or bigger wheel looks really good.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

I think a lot of it will depend on the wheels you run and how far they are pushed out from the truck. Keep the backspacinig close to stock and you should have a chance.

CSIpsd has the combo your looking for, I'm sure he will post in here when he see's the thread.

I have a 4" on my truck with 35's and no rubbing and no trimming but it comes pretty close on the plastic under the bumper and inner fender liner (on flat ground)

If he has leaf springs he will need the backspacing to push the wheels out to get them away from his springs or they will rub. Especially if he is running 13.50 width or bigger.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

Here is the deal. Since business is picking up I hope to get a 4" Icon lift soon with 5" Icon rear springs. All the springs on the truck now are worn out. I picked 5 Weld Cheyennes in 17" x 8.5", 4.5" BS with -12 offset. I'm worried that the 8.5" width is a little narrow for towing with 35" x12.5 tires. I found a deal on a set of 20" x10" Weld Cheyennes with 37x13.5 Toyo MT's. I really only want a 4" lift as this is my work truck and 35" tires are big enough. So not sure if I should stick to the wheels I have or go for the bigger ones. The perfect senario for me would be to find some 18"x 9" or 10" Welds.

This is on the '99.

Re: 37's on 4" lift

If you do go with 18" wheels, I'd opt for the 10" wide with 13.5's. I have 37x13.5 m-16's with 18x9's and wish I had at least a 10" wheel. As it is I only run about 30psi rear, 35 psi front to come close to running full width of tread. Any time I haul a heavy load of wood, it's air up time until I finish then air back down. I have seen some DC's in an 18x12 recently. Good luck.
