37" tire with level kit, how much trimming?

Okay, looking to up size to 37" tires when mine are finally done. Gonna be a 2-1/2" level kit and aftermarket 17x8 wheels with a 0 offset. I know that a positive offset is preferred but already have the wheels. So wondering how much trimming will be required to the inner fender liner and/or fender itself? Probably add pocket flares at this time as well, so not too concerned with the trimming.

Thanks

You will probably have to trim a bit off of the pinch weld.

I would put longer control arms on, and with that offset you will still be trimming metal with the longer arms I'm betting.

Was planning adjustable arms for sure. Just trying to get an idea of how much interference there will be. Thx

What about 35's? Want the 37's but not sure it will work within my goals.

37" tire with level kit, how much trimming?

One more question, how much trimming with a +20 offset wheel? Less to none from what I've been reading. Any thoughts.

I got away with just zip tying the rear of the fender liner back and trimming the small part of the liner that bumps out around the pinch seam. Check out this link 37's on 20's bad rub

With nothing but a leveling kit, I'd stick with a 35" tire.

Plus, unless you do a diff gear swap to at least 4.56 you probably won't be happy with anything 37" and above. Lose power, mileage, and much harder on your drivetrain.

+20 and 35's on my truck stock suspension and no rub. I would think the 37's with a level should be fine, maybe a little trimming of plastic.

I'm tempted to head this direction as well.

i started on 35s no level with very minor rub at full lock. Then I ran 37s with no level and 18x9 -12 offset fuels. did some minor plastic trimming and i did some pinch weld but not much. on a level i would doubt youd need to do any pinch weld. for reference i sit on 38.5s right now with a 20x10 -24 wheel and 2" level. i cut the whole pinch weld out and some plastic and a bit of fender. still looks factory.
