Well I'm guessing from your avatar your trucks an 08+. If so I know with a leveling kit our trucks can run 35's, a leveling kit is 2-3 In's so I would say with an 8" lift you should be able to run 40's. Maby someone with a little more knowledge will chime in.

But I have to wonder, how much do those dam things weigh? I bet they are a fair bit more than "std" 40's. Here is something I can tell you, you will need better brakes (assuming they weigh what I think they do), it will ride harsh (very little flex with 5K load rating), and those might just be impossible to balance (might be possible with balancing beads). Good luck driving those down the highway. Check the speed rating if you want to drive them down the road (at speeds greater than say 55mph).

But with all that out of the way, what tires are you running now, and how much clearance at full lock do you have? How wide are your rims?
