Time for new shoes - Need Opinions

Hey guys,

I wanted to get some of your opinions. I am currently running a 40x15.50x22 tire, I am not sure of the wheel size as I bought the truck used and they were already on it.

I between sticking with the 40's or possibly going alittle smaller 37's or 38's. The prices on 40's are ridiculous, and I love the look. I dont want the truck to sit to skinny.

The truck currently has a 8" fabtech lift. Here is a pic of my truck, if you have any similiar setups with a smaller tire please post so I can try and make a decision.

Thanks again guys!

I honestly do not think it will look as god or ride as well if you go smaller tire on those huge wheels. Truck looks great the way it is imo.

How much would you really save going with a smaller tire? Also how much do you drive the truck?
