8" lift and 37's or 38.5's

I am looking at installing a Superlift 8" kit and and presently gonna go with Pro Comp Extreme All Terrains, but the 38.5's are so close in price that I'd like to squeeze them on. It seems that most folks are getting 37's on a 6" lift, will the 38.5x14.50's fit with mild valance trimming? Anyone got pics? I'm thinking these will be mounted on 20x10 wheels. Will a narrower wheel help with scrubbing? This is a pavement queen.

I think these should fit just fine. maybe a little valance trimming or a small bumper shim, shouldnt take too much to make em fit.
