37's W/ Just Spindles?

What do yall think about this I have a stepside so I have no flares. I want to go from 35's to 37" Goodyear MT/R's the Goodyears measure at 36.8 and the closesest spot to rub on anything is about 3.1". Take into factor that my tires are worn down about a maximum of .75 inchs already which would mean I would have about 2.35 inchs between the spot where it would rub and a new 35" tire. Now if I had the Goodyears that are 36.8 inchs big that would mean between the tire and where it would rub I would have about 1 inch between the tire and where it would rub.

I will be buying a bodylift in about 2 months at the max. But I need new tires SAP as wires are already showing through on 2 of them.

Now my question do you think they will fit? Yes I know they will rub going fast over bumps or into driveways. But I can handle it for 2 months.

Here is a link to the other thread that has alot of extra stuff in it:

After measuring my truck and looking at it and doing to math I am almost postive they will fit with minor rubbing. I think I am going to get them and if they dont fit without the bodylift I will just take the valance off till I get the bodylift. I dont know I guess I am going to think it over some more.

With the valance off I will have more than enough room. I am still thinking about which way to go but I know I am getting Goodyear MT/R's so I am excited about that shizzle!

My tightest point is my fender towards the back of the truck, not the valence. I thought yours would be the same?

If it doesn't fit, just take the fenders off!!! hahaha
