Well right now I'm have 6 inch rough country lift and a 1 inch body lift. There was a guy here selling 37's but he was asking almost the same as fir new ones. He was going to size 40. I like the offroad look, tires that stick out a little. but some how my 315 don't seem to stick out that much.
a 37x12.50 is not going to stick out of the wheel wells any further than a 315, BTW.

I would also suggest places like Pirate4x4, IHMUD, etc. as there are many folks there running this sized tire and then wanting to go larger.

Re: Wtb 37/12.5/17 offroad tires

I will be running 37's once the 35's are worn out...I know I have the room because my dad's neighbor has a toyota truggy w/37's and we put them on just to see.

There is some minor rubbing at a few points when at complete compression...Just two more things to be able to cycle the suspension completely... 1" body lift and maybe to trim little sections of the inner wheel well. I can run the bigger 37's now with the way I have things set up...I just want things to be right off road...

Don't need to hear all the other cons, it's not going to be a rock crawler by no means!
It will be used in light trails with sugar sand dunes and deep water mostly here.
I usually leave state twice a yr. and trail ride in Coal Creek and Skyline Alabama and so far with the 35's I've been running with no problems. The re-gear 4:88 will more than make up for the power loss. All in time as the cash slowly gets put together!

i just orderd a set of 37x12.5x17 pro comp mt's for my fj! they werent cheap, but not many options for that size thats not justa knarly super swomper
37's are gonna look sahweet!!! Even though your truck could probally fit 40's.

Problem I have is 20" rims leave little options for 37" tires and they cost big $.

Many more tire selection with a 17" rim.
