Question 03 with 03-07 8in lift tire sizes??? What are you running???

Hey guy I have an 2003 F350 with 8in lift currently running a set of 37x13.5x17 Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radials. I get awesome mileage out of them have had several sets and always got great tire wear so was super bummed to see Mickey Thompson no longer makes that tire in that size. SO need to find a new tire here soon and was wonder what everyone has been running and how they perform? Also I want to go bigger so was curious about how big some of you have gone with the 8in lift and rubbing and off roading and all that stuff. Thanks!

my red f350 has a 8in lift and im running 40" BFG all terrains and they run great! only defect is turning they run against the leaf springs really bad when you turn to sharp

now on my 89 im running 37" military and they rub a hair bit but not enough to notice unless your really trying.
