37’s on 2.5” level?

Howdy, I’ve seen several instances where people with a 2.5” level can squeeze 37x12.50 on without rub. They typically have 10mm and 20mm offset wheels, I’ve also seen someone with -18 offset and they had slight rubbing. My specs are 2.5” readylift level and -12mm offset, has anyone with the same specs been able to squeeze 37x12.50’s on without rubbing? Thanks, 2017 F-250.

I have a 0 off set on 17x8.5 on 37x12.5. That said I also have lewis built radius arms (which are notched to prevent rubbing).

With your specs and lift you are using - you will rub. How much? I am not 100% sure, but be ready to trim, possibly put spacers on front bumper and have rub at full steering lock with stock radius arms

i also have a ranch hand horizon bull nose front bumper, it looks like it gave me a little extra space to play with. Also have the track bar bracket installed.

Im on a procomp 2.5 level kit on the front with Method 20x12.5 +18 with Ridge Grappler 37's with maybe about .25mm of rub ONLY at full lock going right. I do also have the ProComp drop bar bracket to help realign steering. I love the setup and it looks rad.

Bottom line is if you are a mall crawler you will get a little rub at full lock or when turning into a driveway but it will look great. If you are a off roader who must put the suspension in full travel or even close to it while the wheels are turned you will regret doing it. I would run 37's if I could but even with the BDS 2.5 level and 35x13.50-20's I STILL had to do some trimming.... No big deal just know what your expectations and limitations are before you spend the money. Good Luck!

I've flexed mine all over my property at full lock and all along on trails I normally take for fishing and hunting. I have zero rubbing on my Lewis RA's, bumper, fender wheel or liner, etc.

If you are getting rub in a driveway, forget about taking it anywhere off pavement, it will only be much worse.

No regrets

No rub fills the huge wheel holes nice. Had 35s on it looked like a skateboard. Changed to 37s

I have 20x9 but don't know the offset. They stick out about 1"
​​​​. I only had to trim just a little bit of plastic splash guard.

Does anybody have 37x12.5x20 on their 20” factory rims with a 2 1/2” level. If so any rubbing. There seems to be plenty of space with my current 295/65/20s. Pics please.

For 37's, 8.5" wide wheel is recommended. Factory is 8". Some shops won't mount a 37x12.50 but they will mount a 11.5. Some say a 37x12.50 is fine on an 8" wheel. Just as many others say don't do it.
