I would run 40's on 24's on a dd but I wouldn't run 40's on 15's on a dd lol!! I would only run that setup where it gives you advantages like in the mud or crawling up rocks.

Also, keep in mind that in most applications, the more tire/less wheel setup weighs a lot more than the less tire/more wheel setup
