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.

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.

Sheet metal nibbler and die grinder as stated before. If you like the STS that you have now they make those in a 44" for a 20.
