38's on 2006 F-350

I have a 2006 F-350 King Ranch Crew Cab SRW. Thinking about putting a 8" Pro Comp Stage II lift on it. Will I be able to run 38x14.50x18's with out them rubbing on anything or having to trim anything? The wheels I'm looking are 18x10 with a 4.5" backspacing.

Thanks

I have 38x15.5's and they rub right on the corner of the bumper everytime I try to turn tight,Im on an 8" lift. 14.5's may work but not positive.

they will fit, you may have to trim the lower portion of the air dam to prevent rubbing, it also may rub on the leafs in extreme turns. wider offset wheels can eliminate that.

With trimming and the right wheel b.s you should be able to get away with a 38x14.5 tire. Also try using a tire that doesn't have big lugs so that helps with clearance as well.
