Right now i have a 97 F350 Single cab 460 truck. Its got 4" lift and 35x12.50's on it. I need new tires, im debating on keeping it how it is and just getting new tires or going to 37's. I plan on doing shackle reversal up front 3" and then leaves out back to make it sit level. My question is if i do the shackle reversal, can i fit a 37x13.50 tire or can i only go 12.50. Its on a 16" rim.

Thanks guys.

I had my 35's on with no lift. Now I have 4" and well, the tires look small. 37's are up next... maybe 38's. :D

I doubt it unless it is a pavement queen.
Here is my 97 w a RSK 315/75/16(35/12.50) on a 16/10 wheel. No rubbing but i dont think a 37/13.50 would clear

Thats what i was thinking. Finding a 37 12.50 16 MT is a pain too. When you find one you gotta pay an arm and a leg. Will prolly just put a new set of 35's on. On a side note though, i put a vortech on my 460 truck ,dieselbrad. Those things will run wont they. lol.

I feel ya man, why you think i need new tires? lol. I got traction bars and a locker on it. You need to look into getting an SCT 4-bank flip chip for it. They guy that tunes my truck can do miracles, its pretty good for a gas truck tune. How much boost you seeing?
