Squeezing 40s with 8" lift

I searched and couldn't find anything. I really think my 37s look small on my 8" lift, it could be how worn down they are but I'm wondering if anyone has a pic or knows a member on here running 40" tires with 8" lift. I've seen the guy with 40's with cutouts and 4" lift so I know it could be done, just how much modification.

The new Hankook 40" tires are priced right at the Toyos and honestly, I would be interested in trying them out.

I am running 40's on a 10.5" lift and every once in a while I can get a slite rub when turning. Im sure you could get it to work with some trimming or cutouts.

Its gonna be tight and you will definitely have to do some decent triming and space the bumper out at least 1". I had to space my front bumper out and trim more than I wanted to run 38's on an 8". I loved the look once I got it all setup. If you need any suspension help, Im just a bit south of ya and am always down to make a good deal for a member.

Oh man, I need to change my location, I moved back to Wisconsin in January and never noticed that.

How are you guys spacing the bumper out?

I ran 38s on my last truck with 8" of lift and had no rubbing issues I can remember.

My brother has a 99' with 8" lift and 38's, we didnt have to trim a thing. I think he could run 39.5's easy, mabe 40's depending on rim and back space.
