Cut out fender flares

I have a 2003 f250 with a 10'' lift. I am running a 39.5 tire on the truck.
If I do the cutout fender flares, what size tire do you think I can put on the truck. I am wanting to go back to a 20'' rim.
Here's a pic. of the truck now.

Harley Davidson Headlights
With 6000k HIDs
AFE Stage 2 intake w/Pro Guard 7
Autometer Cobalt blue gauges

I think you could run 44's but I like the wheels that are on it much more then any 20's. I just never could get in to big rims.

IMHO I would say a die grinder and a small reciprocating saw unless you are very steady with that Plasma Cutter.

I used a sheet metal nibbler and a jig saw. Yes I used a jig saw. If I could do it over again I would use the nibbler and angle grinder with a few cut off wheels. I'm running a 8" and with the cut outs my 38's look tiny. I would say 44's fore sure. You could prob go
bigger.
