Question 375's or 35's?

I'm going to be getting my first f150 this weekend (06 King Ranch) and my plan is to put a 6 inch lift on it. I'd like 20x10 or 20x12 rims and I'm curious if the 37's will fit without any issues, or if I need the 35's for this set up. I don't plan on taking it off roading all that often, maybe just a few times a year with my friends that have trucks. I'd love to hear all feedback and ideas. I'm pretty new to the truck scene.

Thanks Guys

37’s will rub bad.. and take down all your power without a gear change. double check with the lift ... make sure you buy wheels with the correct backspacing to clear lift spindles.

Yes 37's will rub a lot, I think. Also, 10" is plenty of rim width. Even with 35's you're going to take a pretty big hit, power wise. The best case is if the truck currently has 3.73 gears, that'll maximize power to the wheels. I would start budgeting for a gear swap. After going to 35's on my '05, I re-geared to 4.56 and it's a whole new truck.
