2003 f250 buying 8 inch icon what tires?

Going to order A full 8 inch icon lift wondering if anyone has suggestion on tire size I run 36 inch on 20 inch wheels right now on 4 inch icon,

I'm thinking about toyo 38 x 13.5 x20 mt. I think 15.5 will be to wide? Anyone have pics?or thoughts?

Depends on how wide your rim is and what the offset is. I have 37/13.50/22's on Alcoa 10 lugs (12.25" width) and they stick out pretty good. In my case, 15.5's would be too wide for my liking.

Do the 38x13.50! I haven`t decided if my truck will stay at 12.5" of lift or if it will grow one last time. I used to have a rubicon express 6.5" lift with toyo m/t 37/13.50r17 tires now I have an Icon 12.5" lift with 38/15.50 r18 tires . I regeared for the 37" tires and I have n`t regeared because I might lift my truck alittle higher once these 38" claws are done!

2002 ford f250 4x4 Lariat. Dark shadow gray with custom painted pearl silver with purple flames, 12.5" Icon lift with OneUpOffroad traction bar block system , OUO driveline drop bracket,Clocked transfer case, 38" MT claws on 18x10 weld dune 8 wheels. MBRP t-304 cool dual exhaust& custom ss t-304 flame tips, AFE stage 2 CAI & custom tunes from elite diesel on XCAL2 , Killer stereo system and lots of billet and flames!! http://good-times.webshots.com/album/556844448GVUyhu

A 38/13.50 will be an easier fit and allow for more wheel travel.

You can get a 38/15.50 to fit on a 10" wide wheel but you will rub on the leaf springs as you approach full lock on the steering. A 12" wide wheel would pull the tire away from the leaf spring, but will cause more clearance issues with the fender and/or bumper up front.
