    I was considering going with 13.5's but the weight on the mud grapplers and Toyo muds jumps up quite a bit.

    So a friend of mine just got the 37x13.5 Coopers and I must say I will be going with a 13.5" when I upgrade. The stance is much more fitting of the taller tire and an extra inch of contact patch per wheel never hurts.

    I do think the wider tire looks a bit better, but if i wont be able to turn, im fine with the 12.50.

    There are many factors to consider with any size 37 when it comes to rubbing, as others have mentioned. Other factors are your lift height and what control arms you use, also wheel width can determine things. For instance a 17x10 wheel with 4.5 backspace is equivalent to a 17x9 wheel with 3.5 backspace. Track bar alignment is important as can cause rubbing on one side but not the other.

    ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1464977166.389101.jpg this is with about 2.5in of lift, slabs with toyo 37x1350. Stock arms and on full turn would slightly kiss the frame and control arm. Steering stop adjustment with about a half inch more lift would of solved it but I lived with it
