I plan on buying a 2022 GEN 3 Raptor (37 package) and want to replace the stock wheel and tire set up. I will use the truck on freeway and city roads only, it will never see a mud puddle let alone go off road. Some may ask why am I buying a Raptor then, my only answer is because I want it and think it`s the best looking truck out there (my opinion). My question is will the new wheel and tire set up listed below work with the stock suspension set up and if not what do I need to do to make it work? Hopefully I would only have to do a leveling kit if anything. If I`m understanding correctly the 37 package comes with a +30mm Offset which would mean my +12 offset would push the tire out 18mm (0.708661") not very much. BFG list the stock tire at Overall Diameter 36.5 and Section Width 12.50" so the new tire is 0.27" taller and 1.08" wider. The tire would be heavier by 24.18 lbs. I`ve tried to do my homework but I`m no expert, that`s why I need your help. Thanks for your time guys.

Going to see a big drop in onroad performance and mpg. You may have rubbing given the different width and slightly larger tire that can be solved with trimming and collars. If you are replacing the wheels and tires why are you going with the 37 package?

Because it's setup for 37" tires, everything I read says there different frames and suspension

As far as guessing I would agree with @Kojack19 on the fitment, more than likely they will mount but you might see rubbing under certain circumstances towards the front or rear of the front wheel well specifically at full lock where you might have to trim, I would imagine the rear will be fine under normal driving conditions.

As far as the leveling kit is concerned, you would just get deeper collars for the front shocks to increase preload on the spring, for raptors you don't want to run with spacers above the coils under any circumstances.

Good luck with the truck!

I would encourage you to search some threads here re the differences.

Totally agree with the above and especially with skipping the spacers.

I think you will have issues especially if you go 13.5 wide. 37x12.50 normally require trimming. The offset will be okay if you are not going to off-road and compress the suspension. Plus 12 offset is still further out than stock. I personally think you will have fitment issues and rubbing.

There is a Code Orange that I have seen here and on IG with 13.5 tires and the owner had to trim substantially. Also don’t forget that Nittos are a true 37” tire, where as BFG’s are about a half inch shorter in height. Nittos are great tires but they are also heavy and the 37’s have a thick side wall.

I also agree the rear will probably be okay, but not sure about the front around full turn and the pinch welds.

You could also get a 35 package and then do springs and collars.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy it. Maybe someone has a similar set up and can say for sure.

Why skip spacers - for instance the rear .75 spacers in the rear from Foutz?
