I wouldn't go bigger than 20". The cost of tires will be enough as it is and you will have a better range of sizes to choose from.

If it was my truck I'd stay at 18" rims because I'm not a fan of big rims.

Pretty much sums it up for me too, but I'd go with what makes you happy.

At least with trucks, the 20's and 22's don't look as ridiculous as they do on cars, but that's just my preference.

I'd stay with the 18's. Remember the larger the wheel, usually the less rubber between the wheel and road and the more you are apt to bend the wheel on hard knocks.

Such is life. Just passing through.

If your truck has 18's on it, myself I'd just go as big as I could in a 18 rather than opt for new rims/tires. But then again I'm a cheap redneck ( lol )

ya if you drive into a curb doing 60 maybe
not like he is putting rubber bands on there there will still be 6 inches of rubber protecting the rim minimum.

I will be running 285/35/22 rubber this summer and have no worries about potholes.

Only time i have ever heard of anyone bending a rim is on a lightweight drag rim.



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

Curbs, potholes? I just thought the fellow might take his truck offroad too!
