too small??

hey im getting some 24 inch rockstars and 38 inch kumhos. i would have gotten the 40 inch super swamper m16s but i heard too many bad things about them and i wanted a tire that will last a long time and not roar like my nittos. but im going to have 10 1/2 inches of lift in the front and 8 in the back basically. but im not sure if 38s will be big enough with that much lift. i need some opinions or pics or something so please help!!! lol. i need to make a decision soon. oh and please tell me what you know about super swamper m16s if you know anything. ill change my mind if i hear good feedback on em.

stick with the 38s...it will stop better,accelerate better,make your wheels look bigger,make you lift look bigger,steer better,not rub,better gas milage,speedo will be more accurate,brake pads will last longer,tires will be cheaper,transmission will thank you....are you covinced yet?
i have 40s on a 10 inch lift with 22s.My next tires will be 38s

i feel like 38s would look small, but toylet has a good point

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

If you have a 10 inch lift...the perfect size rim/tire size (my opinion) is
22x10 inch rim on a 38x13.50x22 tall tire.Cant go wrong with that.

i wouldnt put rockstars on your truck, dont think they hold up on heavy trucks, buddy of mine cracked one last winter just a thought, i do know someone with 22's and 37 and its perfect wheel to tire ratio IMO

umm ditch the 24" rockstars... those *******s crack, the chrome is cheap and pits, and plus everyone has them. Spend your money on some original rims, you wont regret it... ask me how I know!

yeah i already know.lol. i would get some others but all the 24s are on backorder and have been for over a year... but the only reason i got these were because they were so cheap and the rims look good on my color truck. i just got my lift and rims on today. but ur right about the rims man. these are used and they are peeling. but im going to get em rechromed if i can find a place. but ill be posting some pics on here shortly. its been raining all day here in georgia so my truck wont be cleaned up.lol. but i may post some pics of it dirty anyway for the mean time.
