ive got an 81 f350 6 inch susp., 3 inch body, willing to do some trimming, what tire size should i go with, i was thinkin 42 tsl, but had seconds thoughts about 39.5 bogger or tsl, what do you guys think

do the 42's

iv got 10 inches in my 85 f250 and the 42s arent to bad but they do rub a bit when im flexed out. but i think a little trimming will cure this problem. if your willing to do a good amount of trimming 42s will fit nicely depending on how flexy your suspension is.

dana 50 ttb little stronger but still sucks, and dana60 rear, i want to go 60 front in the future, im not rich lol, so i just want to buy tires once, so im going to try the front end with the 40 or so tires and see how it goes, if i blow it up then thats when i do the swap lol
