Default lift & tire question

First post for me. I'm considering putting a 6" BDS lift on with 37x13.5 20 toyo mt's on my truck. Will this setup fit without anything additional being added? The wheels I'm looking at are 20x9 xd spy with a -12 offset.

I've owned 3 rams, but this is the first time I've considered doing the whole lift thing. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

you should be able to fit those 37's with the 6" lift. You might have some minor rubbing on the plastic. but nothing some trimming won't fix. and it won't even be noticeable (the trimming)

You should be able to run that set up no problem! The only thing I would recommend is going to a 20x10 -24 offset wheel rather than a 20x9 -12 offset. It would look better with that much lift and that wide of a tire IMO.

Would 37's look too big with this setup? I'm open to 35's also. I just figured the 37's would fill out more

nope 37s would look great. but if u want to save some $$ 35s still look good.
a lot of tire choices in 37" actually run kinda small like 36" anyway so

What gears do you have on your truck? 37's will look the best but if you only have 3.55 gears then I'd probably stick with 35's.

I'm running 35x12.5's on a 6" RCX lift with Bilsteins at 1.4" and it just on the edge of being big enough IMO. There's a link in my signature with tons of pictures if you want to see how it looks.

Yeah, I was thinking about the gearing issue with the 37's. My truck does have the 3.55 gears.
Your truck looks perfect, so I'll be looking into 35's as well. Thanks again

dvarn, 37's look great with that lift, however as stated above with 3.55 gears it is not really recommended to go that big, I would recommend a 35, and a 20x10 -24mm offset as well as stated above.

If you need pricing on that lift let shoot us an email to sales@bullysperformance.com we will get you the lowest price on the NET and price match anyone selling BDS, we can also get you wheels/tires mounted and balanced w/ TPMS installed and delivered if you are looking for a one stop shop check us out, we ship nation wide and always have the low low prices

thanks
