    I was thinking about 37's with 22's for show and like 38's or 40's with 18's for the mud. Well the whole thing behind having a big lift and what not is to show people what my new business is capable of doing. Me and my dad are trying to start are own business dealing with customizing cars, truck, SUVs, things of that nature. So we should have the money to get the real nice stuff for my truck.

    you would have alot better luck finding a lift for a 3/4 ton or 1 ton and it could hold up with those size tires

    FOr an 8" you should be running 36's but definately do not run a 22" rim. I'm not sure why everybody thinks the bigger the rim the better.

    If you're going to do any serious off roading, stick with a 17" or 18" rim. NOt to mention you'll save a hell of a lot more when it comes to replacing tires for a 17" rim compared to a tire for a 22" rim.

    Thats why I would have an extra set of rims and tires for mudding. 38's with 22's for show and like 40's with 18's for the mud.
