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..

2008 F250 FX4 CC SB Black on Black STOCK and SLOW...Rolled over and TOTALED...

2008 White with Black interior FX4 CCSB
Black C6 Vette
As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

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 am a walking screaming hell. a thing of torture to behold. this vivisection splits my soul. a thing of torture to behold... yeah!

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.
