37's rubbing

Curious if anyone else has run 37 inch tires on their stock 18's? I'm considering it but was wondering if I'll need spacers or if their were even any problems with rubbing. Any comments appreciated. Thanks!

I can't imagine you not needing spacers if you wanted to run 37's on stock rims. Best bet would be to buy wheels with the proper backspacing and sell your 18" rims to some Vdubb kid. You'll be shocked what you can get for them from what I'm hearing.

EDIT:
The wheel spacers are what addresses the rubbing. It provides proper backspacing so that your tires won't rub on steering components.

You are going to need new wheels with a bs of 3.5 to run a 37x12.5" tire depending on the brand of tire and how true to size it really is.

Some build info here:
