I know that he will be able to fit them but I wouldnt advise it especially if he does any kind of wheeling. They will be so tight.

offset will also affect the rubbing issues.

Stay with 12.5 width and no wider. Any wider is really pushing it (lol as if 35x12.5's isnt haha)

OP you sound so desperate....cracks me up people post threads where it they make it sound like they will die unless someone helps them ASAP. chill...

All bashing aside though. I'd stick with 35x12.5's max. Cuz at that size you are pushing the limits of the bearing assemblies up front with the kind of offset/backspacing you will have to run. Another option would be SAS. I wouldn't expect them bearings to last long with 35's. Maybe I'm wrong but the IFS suspension isn't real happy with 35+ tires. 33's seem to be the best all around size. 37's do look badass though...Flame one.
