Default F250 debating 35s or 37s

I have a 2019 F250 and plan to level it but cant decide on 35s or 37s. For those that have put on 37s how did you go about recalibrating the speedometer.

I've found the computer wont allow calibration for 37's. But someone may have another source than forscan that I've used

Mine is leveled and I have 37’s not a factory wheel but not a lot of offset they don’t stock out and have zero rub, forscan won’t allow adjustment to that size , my speedo is roughly 10% off, hypertech makes an inline speedo calibration box, not hard to hook up plugs into the gauge cluster and you can adjust it properly and it’s tucked behind dash plug and play

My younger brother has a 19 Lariat Sport in Silver Spruce, slick color by the way.

He had it leveled and kept the stock black wheels, went with metric equivalents 35ís and it just looks right. He can definitely clear 37ís but the 35ís look great.

Mine is Lariat Sport in Magnetic Grey with the black wheels. Will probably keep the factory wheels. I know 37s with the factory wheels will rub. Leaning toward 35s

You could definitely be right but his looks like the height would clear as long as he didnít increase the width by much.

The 35ís look perfectly fine though.

I have a ready lift level and ran 35’s. It looked ok and then I put 37’s on it that I got for a heck of a deal. To be honest, it looks way better with 37’s.

But, they will rub slightly, and your mpg will suffer. At 70 mph I’m actually going 77 mph so it’s about 10% off as previously stated.

The speedo issue is one of the main reasons I wouldn’t go 37s. I read that with the hyper tech module you have to remove the instrument cluster and I am not particularly excited about that

I’m running 37x12.50s on my 17 F-350. Mileage was about 12-13 Hwy and 11-12 city when stock on 37s. I deleted my truck and now getting 15-16 highway, and 13-14 city. I pull a gooseneck that grossed out at 17k regularly. I get about 8-8.5 with that load.

Iím not seeing THAT drastic of a change. About 2-3 mpg overall going to 37s. Iíve never seen 19 a day in my life with this truck. My current mileage on 37s and deleted is about exactly what I saw on stock tires with emissions. Iím hauling a lot more than I was, and itís tempting to drop back to 35s when these need to be replaced.

You would be better off changing rims to the proper backspacing than trying to add a spacer to your wheel assembly with stock rims. Iíve not heard good things about adding spacers due to them creating more issues than fixing.

Iím sure some person has run them with ďzero issuesĒ but Iíd advise against them on front ends that are suspect to problems prior to adding non-factory parts to it.

I put expensive $400 spacers on my 2000 F250 and it kept the factory trims from rubbing. I only used them for a few months before buying rims with the proper offset. Big shops have me a hassle to do brake work and anything else that required the wheels to be removed. PM me if you are interested in the spaces. They are like new.

I think it may only take like a 1/4” shim spacer vs like a 2 to 3” spacer

This is only based on some forums I have read and no real experience

If you are keeping stock wheels 37s will rub bad on radias arm but wont hurt nothing.. You would need to do wheel spacers at a minimum or go 20x9 0 offset and it should not rub.

I personally did not want 37s on just a level. You will get about 11.5 mpg and rubbing drives me insane. I stuck with 2.5" icon leveling springs and fox shocks with resi and 35" ridge grapplers. Turned out great. If you are keeping stock wheels and plan to use discount for rotations, you will need 295/65s. If not, you can do the 35x12,50. My brother in law has 37s, I have 35s leveled, the 37s look good on stock wheels but rub bad. On aftermarket wheels, 37s look too big in my opinion for just a level but will work just fine.

I think 37's look awesome on a leveled truck. I had them on my truck previously but I got a great deal on a set of 35's so I went that route but it does not look near as mean. Nitto recently has started making 37x11.50x20 and I really want to see these on a superduty. I am worried they will look like pizza cutters being that tall and 1" narrower but I am sure it will help on MPG's to keep the rolling resistance down.

Can someone recommend some actual brands/model #s for leveling kits? I don't want to go larger than 35s on my '17 F250. Gas mileage already sucks enough with the 6.2L. But when my factory tires need to be replaced I'd like to upgrade a bit. Thanks for any info.
