Default 2011 needs help with tires: 38s-40s

Hey guys, new guy so be nice plz . Picked up my 2011 Sport CC 4x4 Wednesday from a forum member. Its in need of new tires, within the month I'd like to have a set. Truck has 10" and 37s with front and rear Iron Bull bumpers. Seller told me I could put a 40x15.50 on it, not sure if I want to go that big. Anyone have any input on a 38x15.50x20 to a 40x15.50x20....thanks guys!

pictures give us something to look at lol. i wouldnt recommend 40s on a half ton. i have a 10'' lift on 37s and its pretty good... 38s would be the max i would go, but i wont be runnin 15.5'' wide tires. ever

Those were suggestions from Blake. Said he would run a 40" KM2 or 38" Mud grappler. Im not too sure what to do. He has a steering kit and rear shocks Im probably going to get from him.

I think the 37's look just fine, I don't think you need to go any bigger when you get new shoes.

I guess I'm just not a fan of the stuffed look I have a 2500 with about 7 inches of lift and 37 on stock wheels with a lot of fender room

Get some 40X14.5X20 SS m16's a pound lighter each than toyo 38x13.5X20 so you shouldnt be putting too much strain on it.
