Need Wheel/tire advice before lifting

i am gonna be lifting my f250 here pretty soon. I am going with an 8 inch lift. however I am not sure of the tire/wheel combo. I am stuck between 22/37 or 24/38 combo. I am scared on a 8 inch lift 37s might look small. anyone know of the mileage drop I could see from going with the 24s vs the 22? or if on that size lift if the tires looked small. I know the off set and all has to do with it as well. I would be going with a -24 or -44 offset either which way I go with a 11in wide wheel. any help would be much appreciated. thank you

This is with 24's and 38's. It needed more lift. I could not turn the beast in a football field.

37s will look small on a 8in lift. Go with a 6in if you are set with 37s

I'm not a fan of 24s on 38s.
I think a 22 would look good on the 37 or 38s

Super man love the look of your truck. And yea i wish they made a 22 for a 38 inch tire but they don't the only one they do is a off brand tire that I see no one reviewing . But I just don't know If I like how small the sidewall is on the 24 /38 combo

It's just an inch in tire size. Not worth it to me. 37 s to 40 s. that's worth it, but not for a 38.

That's true. I don't think you could really tell that big of difference. Especially for the money difference

No I think it looked proportioned. The wheels were a 20x9 XDs.
The Rockstars were a 24x12 with a -44 offset.

OK good deal. If I go with 37 I'm gonna go 22x11 with -44 offset . If I go 24 they will be 11 in wide with -24 offset. I'm stuck between xd badlands and fuel hostage wheels. Was there a change in fuel mileage between the two?
