ok guys heres my deal...

I have a 2" kore leveling kit on my truck now...i want to put my stock wheels back on with 37's. I have been told i cant do that. is that true?? is there any way i could put like 1/2" spacers on? i dont like when the tires stick out alot if its a little thats ok. or is the other option just putting a 1 or 2" body lift on the front to get clearance?

Wheel spacers? if you push wheel out it will rub more. Like DWRAT said anything over a 35 will rub a LOT when you turn especially if you flex it out. If you want no rub go with a 33, 35's should be fine with a small amount of rub all depends on type of tire.

Search for the "Stock with big meat" article. There is a guy running stock suspension and stock wheels with 37s Goodyears. he says no rubbing except on the upper control arm at full lock.

My bros truck had 37" Cooper MT's on stock rims and suspension I seen first hand how much you need to make them work. They rubbed on control arms, sway bar, and the front fender liner. And if you hit a bump on a bit of a turn they hit.

NOT a good choice IMO for any truck that is used for anything more then sitting.

I rub 37x12.50 on stock rims with a 6" lift on my control arms, physics tell me they will rub a lot more on the arms with no lift!

Unless you plan to lift it later on, don't do it. A leveling kit won't really help you. Plus IMO they looked so stuffed and just look terrible.

I have basically the same set-up as this guy with 37. Mine is Goodyear Wrangler GS-A 37X12.5X17 on stock rims and no lift. Like this guy mine only rubs on both left and right controls arms at full luck.

With a 3" leveling kit on my 03 ram I ran 37's with the factory wheels. Rubbed the control arms at full turn that was about it. No fender problems whatso ever. I liked this setup better than the 4.5" fabtech with my procomp wheels. The truck looked pretty tough. Put a 1" spacer on top of the Kore and I feel sure it will work with no problems. I think it will work with just the Kore kit by iteself as long as you have factory wheels. Anykind of wheel with offset more than factory will screw you.

I would think with stock wheels, your BS would save you from rubbing control arm. I can't vouch for fender though
Stock wheels could give him rubbing on the control arms, the H2's I have move the tire out about an inch but then you're REAL close at the fenders, my 35's rub on my mud flaps.
I think he should stick to 35's.
