wheel size

i just ordered the rize 8inch lift for my truck and when i was ordering tires i decided to go with the toyo open country mt 38x15.50 with 20 inch rims the place that i ordered it from said it would be ok to run a 10inch wide wheel does anyone have any experience with this and think i should go with a wider wheel

well first off I wouldn't go with 4.88's... the 4.56's are great for your size of tire your gonna have.... and that is just outragous... go find someone else and ask around... I didn't do any of it myslef cause where I could have done it my uncles grarage burned down... :-( sooo... I just payed someone to do it... and does that include any different kind of limited slip??

oh and 1k an axle sounds about right... remember the gears alone cost around 500 bucks and they are charging you 500 bucks for install which is the going rate..... also if you have the extra funds put a locker in the rear like a detroit... you wont be disappointed....
