I hate fiberglass and fender flares, and hate how Raptors sit stock, so IMO, they need wheels/tires that stick out a lot more than stock to fill those giant wheel wells. But 38x15.5s are too much on a truck that's got like 3" of lift. 20x12 on 37x13.5s would be a lot better.

And $65k is insane for 3+ years old and 31k miles. He has maybe $10k in upgrades, so dollar-for-dollar, $65k is almost what it would cost for a 2014 Raptor and those upgrades.

Looks cool, I bet the ride is very noisy at highway speeds because of the wide tires.

Read through his upgrades and he has a 90 gal auxiliary gas tank, anybody else installed one of those?

So he lives in Fort Lauderdale and near the beach apparently judging by the pictures. Not saying he does or he doesn't do it but aren't super wide tires great for driving in sand conditions?

Theoretically, yeah. But we both know that's not why they're on there. 15.5" wides are overkill lol.

Living by the beach is another knock against it - rust.

I ran 38X15.50R20s on my 03 F-150 and honestly the tires weren't very loud considering there size, my exhaust was louder than the tires.
