It will be close. Their tie down straps wont fit around 37's. But you can just use an extra ratchet strap and it will work no problem.

My buddy towed his 67 Cruiser with 35s on one. He strapped it to the trailer with binders and chain.

When I moved from AZ. I rented a car trailer with my moving van (not U-haul) and the wheel straps were not long enough for 33's. I had a set of large ratchet straps and just secured it that way. Just make sure you do a 4-point corner tie down to be legal.

I just drove across the states , I used a u haul trailer , the straps didn't fit , 6 inch short
But if you just strap the axil down instead of the tires it will work just fine , also there's a chain in the rear of the trailer , deflate the rear tires a little chain the rear axil down then inflate them back up , get er dun!
