bigger rims with 36" tires

I have a 2007 6.7 liter megacab 3500 cummins and i was thinking about putting some 22.5 inch wheels with 36" tires on it. anyone tried this setup? how do loads pull with it? i pull quite a few and quite heavy loads with it. nearly 50,000 miles in about 3 months and most loads range from 20,000 lbs to one 32,000 lbs and one that was even about 41,000 lbs.

Those huge wheels will add alot of unsprung weight to the truck. Those wheels are very heavy,plus I don't know if they would be rated to haul those kind of weights. You might crack them.
