Clear 40's on 8" Fabtech lift????

Ok guys, I have got an 05 Super Duty with an 8" Fabtech lift, fox shocks all around, bags in rear, and 38" Toyo MTs on 20's right now. But I am REALLY itching to move up to a 22" rim on a 40" tire... Can it be done with my 8" Fabtech lift??? I have absolutely no rubbing with my 38's right now, and it just seems like such a big gap still between the top of my tire and the fender. I know the width is where I will run into a problem but I LOVE a wide tire look and wouldn't wanna go with a skinny tire. I really wanna get 22" black rockstars on 40" Toyo's again. Let me know if anybody thinks it can be done??? Also does Kuhmo make a 40" MT Tire???? Thanks guys...

no way.....sorry man.

well...let me take that back....it will fit....but do you like driving in a straight line...because you aren't gonna turn it....

it's not the top of the fender well that you have to worry about,...it's the front bumper, and the back of the fender well.


If you were willing to do some bumper/sheet metal trimming....it would work....but that's the only way.

Kumho doesn't make a 40"

To clear a 40" Toyo you'll need a minimum of a 10-10.5" lift , IMO (without cutting any sheet metal that is).

You'd have a better chance of clearing a skinny 40" like a Goodyear MTR, Mickey Thompson or Dick Cepek since they are only 13.50" wide. But, they don't make them for 22s.


Edit: Holy Crap did someone copy our sig images....

u willl prob be similar to when I ran 37's on a 6 inch lift
I would only rub when I turned into my driveway, full lock then hit that little incline as I pulled in. I went to 8" lift to alleviate that rub, and I am the opposite, I wanted more of a gap (not too much though)
Rockstars do give u some more backspacing though than alot of wheels

as far as Kumho, from what I know they only have a 37X13.50 for 22's.
They have 38X15.50 for 20's, and a 38X14 for 24's
I run the 37X13.50X20 myself.

Toyo doesn't have a 38" for a 22" wheel.....only the 37" and 40".

Kumho has a 38" for a 24" wheel though.

Ya I just saw that...Trying to research a little bit right now... Anybody have 24s on 38s? Likes or dislikes about them?? Do you think going with a 24" rim would make my truck ride any rougher than it does already??

Doubledrop...Your saying that the Rockstars have more of a backspacing so they would be wider?? Looking at the rockstars they almost look like they are kinda skinny wheels just because there is no lip....

no, the backspacing pushes the wheel/tire out of the inner fender, so less likely to rub from turning, etc
look at anyone with rockstars and they are pushed waay out comapred to alot of other wheels I see (with the same size/make tire, etc)
