Clearing 40's?

Hey im looking for some input, my truck is lifted 9.5 inches (8" suspension with leveling shackles in front and 8" spring and factory block in rear) Wondering if you guys think i could clear 40's without majoring rubbing and not having to trim too much. The tires you see in the pic are 38x15.50x18 toyo mt. If you have pics of your truck on 40s lets see it.

10" of lift on 40" M16s... I had 40x15 Toyos before and it rubbed at FULL turn... So it all depends on the backspacing your using..

Nice rig! Yea i only rub a little at full turn right now, so i think the back spacing would be ok with 40s. Where did you order those 08-10 emblems from?

40x15 on 10" lift.

Rubbed on leafs and had to trim the front bumper a little, had a steering stops welded in to stop the rub on leafs so no rub but less turning radius.
