Default 10 pants on an 8

I have a buddy who just finished an 8 and is considering larger tires (lives up north) and wanted to know if anyone out there has put larger tires and 10 wheel pants on an 8. I recall reading something in the distant past about this but was unable to locate the thread.

Thanks for any info,
Greg

How large are the tires he wants? The -10 pants are humongous. Unless your friend is planning on really large tires, why not just raise the standard pants?

It has been my experience when you fit an 8 into a pair of “10 pants” you may end up with what the younger folks call a “muffin top”.

YMMV
