I keep going back and forth from keeping the factory 20s and going to 34s or going with a 285 or 295, 17-18 inch equivalent.

I'm 90% street and 10% off-road (forest service roads and construction site, no real rock crawling), spread out throughout the year in WA.

Thanks 🤙

I don't have direct experience as I stayed with 20" rims, but I did look at the math on this when considering. There is essentially no weight penalty between 18 and 20" rims, which I found surprising.

Would you mind sharing the wheel and tire specs? And possibly a picture of the poke? I love your set up
Sure, wheels are venomrex 17 by 9 +12 and a 285/75R17 Toyo AT3 tire.

My factory STX 20s weighed 78-79lbs per corner. The new set up weighs 83.6 lbs at each corner and that was upping the tire size to 34s!

With the -6 offset how far out from the fender does the tire poke out?

I was relly trying to stay +12 to +25, but looking at your truck it barely looks like it's past the fender lol.

I currently have 34's (LT295/60R20) on 20's. Ride with the E rated tires and Ford Performance Bilstein suspension is firm but not objectionable. Anything less then 20's look small to me on these trucks, but to each thier own.

Are you stock or leveled?
