Hope this is helpful, unlikely to change, but could on final gamma.

Honestly surprised it is rolling on 33" from the factory! Is that new for the 21+ year trucks? (My 2016 had 32" from the factory.

According to discounttire.com, yes, this started with the 2021 F150 (referring to the 20" wheels only as the 18" wheels have the same 32" tires across both gens). The 2020 had 275/55/20 and the 2021 started coming with 275/60/20.

Now I'm wondering what the range impact is going to be between the 18" and 20" wheels since they get 32.1" and 33" tires respectively since I doubt they change the reduction gearing on the truck based on which wheels you get (though I'd love to be wrong on that).

I much rather prefer 18" on a truck.

20 and 22" are great on sedans and crossovers that don't have to "work" off road or haul.

18" is more softer & giving, cheaper to replace, and 18" has way more choices on different uses (Snow, Mud, Rock hopping, sand, etc)....
