2008 f350 lift?

Can I run a 40x13.50x17 on a stock 17x6.5 dually wheels. Was looking to run a 8 inch lift with 38's or 40's if they would fit the rims safely. I seen a few duallies on youtube with this size tire on 17x6.5 rims. They were show trucks though so I'm not sure if they were road worthy.
Thanks.

Should probably look into spacers between the rear wheels

6.5" rims IMO are way to narrow for a larger wider tire. Most 38-40" are 12-13.5" wide some 15.5" wide. I wouldn't even run a 35x12.5 on a 6.5" rim.

Wow I think there are a few on here that are running 12.50 wide tires on stock 6.5 inch wide rims. Super swamper makes a 35x10.50x17 but that's all I could find Ina narrow tire that size. I would probably still have to run a 2 inch spacer in the rear. I'm not a fan of the ssr tire. I would rather run a procomp, toyo or BFG mud tire.

I guess that's why discount tire said they wouldn't mount my new tire if I had to run spacer in the rear.

Discount won't put it on the vehicle but they will put a tire on the rim, they just have a policy of not touching things with adapters or spacers, so as to keep them from being liable, but if they would put a tire on a rim half as wide I doubt, but possible, your going to need a spacer in the rear tires obviously, but not sure how much space. I've been recommended no larger then a 10.50 wide on stock 6.5 rims, but that's about the extent, I have stock tires on stock rims, on a stock truck

I'm running stock toyo At tires on my 08 but was wanting to spend some cash on a 6 or 8 inch lift and 35 or 37 inch tires. I just don't want to have tire issues or any problems when towing my travel trailer.

Can't you fit 35's at stock height? I know my dad rocks 37x14.50 on a 4" lift on his 10 srw f350

I have a 3 inch lift on it right now. I'm sure it would fit 35's. I know you can if its a srw but wasn't sure about duallies in stock form.
