Default 37s on 6 inch lift

I have a stage 1 procomp 6" lift and I'm running 33s. I found a great deal for some 37" mud terrains. I've seen trucks that have a 6" lift with 37s, just don't know what comes with that. Rubbing? Trimming?

I believe you can fit that if you have stock rims. If not you'll prolly need a 2" level kit.

They're 37x12.5x17 and the tires I'm running now are 33x12.5x17 on aftermarket 17x9 rims

I think you can run them. If theres significant rub than put a leveling kit on or a body lift. If its a fantastic deal go for it. But i suggest regearing also. Which is pricey.

I would do it because the width is the same. I'm looking for 37"s too, but I would have to go from an 18" rim to a 20" rim to get a 12.5 wide. Nitto Trail Grapplers. And plus 37s make it look so much better.

Got any pics of your truck with the 33s on? I'd like to see a 6" lift and 33s.

They don't look bad.. But look a little small to me.

I actually kinda like it. A little wider and more aggressive tread would really make it look nice.

Looks good, thanks for the pics. I've been considering dropping to a 33" tire on my next set to reduce weight and maybe improve fuel economy, just didn't know how it would look on a 6" lift.

Just got the 37x12.5x17 Cooper Discoverer STTs on! Look awesome and I love them! Minor rub and trimming. Only trimmed a 1/4" off the front.
