37in tires

Alright, so I found some military humvee tires that are 37x16.5's for a great price. Im pretty sure they wont, but is there any way they would fit on my ranger that only has a three inch body lift?
This is what the ranger builder came up with-
http://www.autowaretech3.net/nextwheels/andys_ecomm.htm --->Vehicle-Ford Ranger XLT 4x4, 3in lift, 37in tire, 16.5 rim
(edit) Forgot to add, there not really a mud tire, so they wont be quite as beefy as the picture.

i would say no lol unless you do some major trimming. or unless you drive in straight line and never turn or hit any bumps they might work but you would need a susp lift too and they would fit

First of all unless you run a 16.5 wheel, you can't run military take offs. and second no you can't run a 37 on just a body lift

I run 32x10.50x15 on stock wheels
rub when turning sharp, no body lift or suspension lift, I "had" inserted airbags in the front spring, they lasted 5yrs.
now I have nothing.

Sorry that was a typo, I meant 16.5 for the rim size. But ya, I figured they wouldn't fit without some serious trimming, which i'd rather not do to my truck. I was going to get 33's but for the price of the 37s I was just curious how doable it was.

its not doable. 16.5 are a rim they dont really make for our truck im pretty sure and you have nowhere near enough lift. Even with major trimming you will not be turning sharply.

I don't think so... and I doubt you could find a 16.5 rim with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern anyways.
