switching to bigger tires

whenever i need new tires, i'm thinking about moving up to 37s or 38s. i'm currently running the 355s. and would a 6" lift be big enough for 40s? anyone know what the price difference in this would be? and any suggestions?

There's a guy on here named SeaBeefx4 or something like that, he's running 38s and pushing it. I think his are 15.50s but toyo makes a 13.50 that would be better.

I couldn't imagine 40s would work on normal circumstances but I don't know if you'd be able to do it with your front bumper....

Helllll no 40s will not fit....takes a SOLID 8" to even start thinking about 40s...then you have to plan the wheels perfect..

I'm running 37's on a 6" Icon, I don't think you could go more than that without rubbing everything or cutting metal.

I think the guys running 38's are even running 8" lift or more.

i went to discount tire today to do some comparing and got some interesting news. i'm currently running 355/60/20s and i asked him to compare those with some new 37's and found out that my 355s are actually taller than the 37s! i thought that was awesome and they are quite a bit cheaper.
