Default Need your opinion....

I want to install 37x13.5-18 tires. Will my 4.7L be able to turn those tires? My truck is an 07 with a 6in RC lift and 3in Zone body lift. Also, I've installed 4.56 gears. Is it a go or no go . Thanks for your suggestions....

Depends on the offset and backspacing of your rims. Height wise you'll be fine its the width that will give you trouble.

You should be good to go since you have 4.56 gearing.

Sorry but, with my -12 offset and 4.5 backspacing, does anyone know if the 37x13.5-18 tires rub the upper contol arm? Will the tires be to wide (13.5) with my setup? Thx for your input
