So, I am beefing up my stocker D44's and finally moving up to 37's, I think, but can't get any good information on sizing. The tire I want is the Toyo Open Country M/T which only comes in 37x13.50R17, no 12.5" width. The wheels I picked are Mickey Thompson Classic III with 4.5" backspacing and -12 offset.
I've heard that this combination will also need spacers and I'm loathe to add spacers to a D44 on top of 4.5" of backspacing. Can someone with experience tell me:
- Will I need spacers with this equipment?
- If so, why? (Does it rub at full lock, etc...)
- Will moving to a 12.5 (Say nitto or KM2) fix this issue?
Thanks in advance!
