Man if they are a stock rim they would have to be like 4" to 4.25" backspacing. That's way to close of a backspacing for a t/m lift kit but might be ok on a fabtech not sure I run trailmaster. So you are going to try to run 37's with less than 8" of suspension lift. B/c the fabtech I was told isn't a true 6" lift kit. Its like 5 1/2" of lift. If you use those rims with that backspacing you may be ok but if you run a rim like in your pic with like 3 5/8 backspacing your going to eat some fenders.

Well I am hoping that they are a 5" BS and then I would run a 1" wheel spacer. I have searched for 17 alloy rims and I could not find a rim with 4" of BS or less. I am looking at having 4" of BS because I currently can clear my 36X12.5X15 TSL's which is on a 15X8 with 4" BS and the tire is just inside the fender

Yeah that has to be why your clearing them is b/c the skinny rim hugging in close to the truck. I run 36x12.50x15 tsl radials on 11.5" of lift on 15x10 hellcats 3 5/8 backspacing.

Well the fabtech kit pushes your wheel forward and limits the uptravel. Before I did the pinch weld mod, I would hit the plastic on full compression but after I do not rub

Are you going to lift more for the 37's or just let it hit. Do you like the way your truck looks with the 15x8's and 36x12.50's. I put my radial 36x12.50's on some chrome 15x8's and hated the way it looked. I ordered some 38x15.50's about 2 weeks ago I am putting them on 15x12's. I'm sure there going to hit just not sure how bad or where at yet.

Well I found some one with the wheel and tires that I might get so I will post the pictures here. They are 17X9 MT Classic II rims and I am trying to confirm the BS but I think they are 4.5 and they clear the fabtech steering knuckle with 37X12.5X17 BFG Muds. Does any one have any other suggestions for a street friendly 36-37 inch tire? The only reason I am getting the 17" rims is because BFG only sells their 37" tires in the 17" rim selection. It looks like it is going to cost 1600 for the rims and tires.
