new dilemma

hey guys,

so tomorrow I'm tearing apart the truck to do my 08 front clip and I'm in a debate.

I have a guy who wants to trade me 4 22x14 xd diesels and 6 37x13.5x22 toyo's for my 5 Rockstars and 4 37x13.50x24 toyos....my dilemma falls under this:

should I keep my 24's and just up to 38's next year or get the 22x14's and get 40x15.50 toyos and lift it another 4.5" with crossover? I would only have to buy the crossover as I already have a line on the 4.5" hangers and rear suspension.....

my truck will be staying red for a while, I'd be running 12.5" on 40's with chrome 22x14 xd diesels or I'd eventually be running 38" kuhmos with 24x12 chrome rockstars.

OR my last but VERY least choice is to keep the 37's since I have 2 spare tires and just keep my 8" suspension on 37's....with 22x14's.....

HELP ME

I keep seeing more and more people with the rockstars in a 24x12...........I kinda set a trend and as far as the diesels NO ONE around here has them, that's the main reasonn for really wanting them....

my only worry with the 22x14's is rubbing my fenders and bumper......so if I do keep the 37's I'll go up AT LEAST another 2" of lift and run 37's......Idk what to do though.
