The SS M-16 and other tires in the 39.5-42 inch range

When i first saw them, i thought they would be awful and a waste of time. Reviews have generally been good and now they have a 40x14.50x20 that i might be interested in.

I am lifting my tow rig / daily driver / other toy: 2008 F350. I am going up about 10 inches and am looking to run a 39.5-42.

I know a 40 will fit comfortably and have a set of 39.5 Bias Iroks in the garage to get things kicked off (got them used for a steal).

Tires im looking at for down the road (if they fit):

40x15.50x20 toyo open country MT (big $$)
41x14.50x20 Irok Radial
40x14.50x20 SS M-16
42x15x20 TSL SX (dont think will have the load rating needed for my diesel)

Other ideas? Suggestions? The M-16 looks like the best all around bang for the buck (because tread life is supposed to be quite a bit better than the IROKS).

Looking forward to any input. These will see mostly street time, with some logging roads, farm roads, and the occasional light off roading trip when the CJ is down for repairs.

Thanks

apparently, BFG just released a new 40x14.5x20 KM2 as well that I just started looking into. I imagine it will be in the same price range as the toyos though.
