Default Bilstein shocks needed for 37" tires w/6" RCX?

Lift is installed and have to pull the trigger on some new treads tomorrow. Was going with the Nitto Terra 37X12.5X17 on 17X9 -12 offset wheels but I am a little worried I might have rubbing issues on the front fender/bumper. Seems in every search, anyone running 37's has the bilsteins. The 37's are only $20 more than the 35's so I would like to make them work. The Nitto's actually measure out 36.46". Anyone know if this setup will hit the fender or rub anywhere?

I have a 6" RCX with Bilstein 5100 at 2.1" and rub slightly.

BUT I am running 37x13.50 on 20x10 wheels. So I honestly think you will be better off than me. I would get the Bilsteins just to be on the safe side. I think you would rub with 37s on a 6".

Plus Bilsteins will give you a better ride quality and also give you the ability to go higher when wanted/needed.

It will be close as it is 13.5" wide as per their site.
But I do strongly recommend Bilsteins either way.
The key offset to have zero rubbing is 0 offset on a 20x9 rim. Not many like this offset and choose to have a wider and more negative offset for a much better stance.

Thank you all for the feedback. I think I will go with the 35's this time and take some measurements off of them. Perhaps 37's next time.

Which tire you thinking about going with? If it is a Toyo or ProComp tire I'd be more than happy to get you a quote

Thanks

Thanks for the offer. Went with a local tire shop for lifetime rotation and balance. Maybe next time.
