    You plan on doing a body lift too? You're gonna need to do a LOT of trimming if not! My 35s rubbed bad off road with only 4", I can't imagine what a 38 would do!! One of two options probably: 1) Your 38" tires will soon be "downsized" by the fenders shredding them or 2) Your fenders will soon part ways from the rest of the body with a loud metallic ripping noise... ha,ha Hey, if you can make it work, more power to ya, let us see the pics!

    This should be a doable combo. Make sure that you know what width tire and the offset of the rim that you need before you plunk down any cash. A good shop should let you see how various combos look and fit before you buy them. I don't have any problems whatsoever with my 35x12.5's and a 4" lift so I think there's plenty of room to play with as long as you trim.
