Fuel Hostage & 40's Help

I am looking to buy a new set of wheels and tires for my truck. I want a set of black 20x12 Fuel Hostage Wheels with possibly 40's. I currently have 37's with no rubbing issues at all. I am going to go up another 2.5"s to fit the larger tires. Do any of you think I will have a problem with fitting the 40's or should I just go with 38.5's? Thanks in advance for your help on this.

what size is your lift? I have a 10" and i run 40's on 22's with very minimal rubbing to one side. It looks like you would be fine but your wheel offset is really going to determine a lot.

Here the thing, I don't know what size the lift is. I bought the truck the way it sits right now. Do you have any pictures of your truck so I can compare?

I am going to use a shackle reverse kit on the rear and get rid of my stacked blocks. Using a Newton 2.5" lift for the front. Everything should work fine as long as the tires fit. Thanks for the info man.

because you are going to 20x12's i think the 40's will rub. If i were you i would go with some 38x15.50's

Would staying with a 20x10 make it possible?

Probably but 12's will look much better. It prob wont rub that bad but i bet it will rub. What makes you want to stuff 40's under it?

I parked next to a truck at Home Depot a couple months ago and thought it looked sick. It had a set of 40's on some 20" XD Badlands wheels. Since then I have wanted 40's. It is kind of sad since my wheels and tires only have 3k miles on them. I might just do the lift to see how much clearance I have and then go from there. I love Rockstars without the centers on them and no one around me really has them. I have never seen the Hostage wheels anywhere though. Decisions decisions???
