8" lift cutouts and 40s opinions

I am wondering what people would think about this setup. I am getting ready to lift my truck and I am thinking of doing a 8" lift with bushwacker cutout flares and 40x15.50x20. Not sure if a 20x10 or 20x12? If anyone has any pics of something like this throw them up. I have searched and searched and searched and come up empty handed. Maybe im not searching in the right spot.

Thanks Craig

What year of truck?

Some guys roll 40's with an 8" without cutouts. Even though they rub like crazy. So 40's might be too small.

oops guess that would help. Truck is an 04 ccsb. I don't want them to have the too small look but I also don't want to put 40s on an 8" and have it rub over a speed bump. I was thinking a 6" would be good with 40s and cutouts. I can only find pics of 4" with 40s and cutouts and that looks STUFFED.

A fellow who went by Tank250 on here had 4.5" lift and 40's with cut outs. It looked sick.

6" and cutouts would probably work great depending on your wheel choice. If you are going to run 9-10" wide wheels you should be fine. If you are looking at 12" or wider wheels then you will mostly likely need more lift.

8" lift, 22x14's and 37's will it clear?

Picked up an 06 f350 today and it's totally new to me as I have an ifs silverado gasser.
Planning to order some 22x14s and 37s tomorrow morning. I'm sure they will fit fine on an 8" lift, but I'd just like to get a green light.

Thanks.

For that wheel you will want a 10", unless you want to trim alot . I had to go to an 8" with a 20x10 4.5" bs -25 offset wheel on 37x13.50x20 to stop the rubbing and thats with the bumper spaced 1/2" too!

How can I get an extra inch or 2 up front to clear? The difference in cost on an 8" vs a 10" is astronomical.
