Will they fit??? (44s on 8" lift with Cutouts)

Truck is the one in my sig.

Has anyone run 44s with an 8" lift and cutouts? If so how were they on rubbing?

THat will be close as heck. I have 8" on my old 99 and I could run 40's without cut outs but they rubbed on the leaf springs even with deep dish wheels. They will probably clear the body on flat ground but I am sure they will be all up in your springs. I do not know if they will contact the body when flexing though.

I run 41s with standard steel wheels now without any issues. I have some 1.5" wheel spacers as well so I was thinking the 44s with the wheels spacers would be good as long as they will clear the body.

I dont have tires yet. Trying to figure out if they will fit before I buy them. Found a set of 44s for my wheels for $300 so Ill probably just wing it. If they dont go on my superduty ill put them on my 79 ford mud truck lol

I was told by the previous owner that my truck has a 8" lift (If you give me some measuremenst somwhere I can confirm whether or not this is true or not). I installed the bushwacker cutouts and 42's (cant remember how wide). I rub on the leaf springs when I crank the steering wheel too much and my tires hit the fender when off roading or when having the tires turned while going over bumps. However, I have spoken with others with 8" and they fit 42's without having problems other than rubbing on the leaf springs. I have not heard of anyone running 44's with 8" of lift. If I do infact have 8" of lift on my truck, I do not think it is possible to run 44's.

Thanks for the input.

I had to trim my bumper for my 41s but as far as fender well clearance they looked like they had plenty of room (idk if that would be the same case for 44s but the 41s looked good).
