Deciding on new Tires

Look for anything in the 37-40 range. I have 18x10 wheels, and currently have 38x13.50's on them. Everyone told me this truck has a 6.5 inch lift but it seems to have a bit more but unsure. I think a 40 would fit but its not always how big you can go. I do almost all street driving, when offroad its the beach or farm roads. Occasionally I will do mud, but just a few times a year. Not a huge fan of super wide tires either, plus being leaf sprung and not alot of Back Space my truck will hate me.

I have a few tires in mind:
KM2
Gelolander M/T
Mud Grappler

These are what I'm looking at, the Grapplers are in there because its the cheapest I found in the 37x13.5 size. And the GEO is a cheap 40 inch tire as wlel but I have no experience with them. I'm open to all suggestions and links. I have owned many a tire and always looking for more to try. Under my belt are BFG A/T, BFG org. mud, SSR's, STS A/T, TSL, LTB, Claws, Toyo M/T, and MT's baja belted. I loved my STS's but the size for their 18's is 15.50 I will rubb full lock both ways.

Any and all help is apprieciated


ENGINE:
AFE Stage 2
4 inch down pipe

Looks like an 8 to me as well. If you dont mind a HEAVY tire id look into the M16s by interco. They look sweet.

1997 Single Cab Dually, S366 w/ Irate mount and plenums, EFuel, Intercooler, P.I.S 175/80s, Corbeau seats w 08 console, 19.5s, 6637, Black Interior with swede headliner and visors, Custom badges, Flight Fab Traction Bars.
