Op, please oh please, do not take this as an insult, as it is not meant as one.
If you HAVE to ask what axles are going to hold up to 44" tires, I seriously doubt you have the skills to put those 44's to good use. The two things just go hand in hand, wheeling skills and knowledge.
It takes most of us literally years to get to a place where 40"+ tires are required to enjoy ourselves.
Why such a massive tire?
I have always wheeled on 37's, fully locked and skid plated. It gets me on 5's at most parks, and 3's and 4's all day long, as a rule. There is very little terrain that calls for that size of tire in my experience.
The cost of going over 35's or 37's is outrageous in my experience. Most that go that route, when being honest, will admit to it "not being as much fun for the money involved".
Now if you are going just for "show", then use whatever you wish I guess.
With that size motor, and the probable gearing you have, why not stick to 35's or 37's and have fun? You will save yourself a TON of cash in the end.
Just my .02 from years of building rigs, and sometimes going too far!
