Have you priced out 40s lately? Do you get nails, broken glass, etc at the job sites? I've had 40s on previous vehicles and with the increased wear and tear, weight, reduced breaking distance, and cost increase I've opted for sticking with 37s for my 90 percent road traveling trailer pulling truck. Remember all that extra rotating mass combined with a heavy trailer really makes braking hard in many situations.

Those 40s sure do look nice though.

Edit. Try changing a 40" tire on the side of the road. The weight of the tire is enough to question the status of your lower back. 150lbs ish per tire iirc from my set of my last truck.
