    I have 18's but i would suggest 17's only because you have a lot more options while 18's limited you to a fewer amount of wheel and tire selection.

    i was thinking about 20"s but idk if they make a tire thats a 285 for 20"s, cuz i already have minor rubbing issues with the 285s.

    They have tons of tire options for 20's, go to tire rack and look up tire options by wheel size, i didnt realize there were so many choices till i did this. But then again i am only running 20's because i got them for free via trade with another taco owner!

    295/45/20, thats what was on them when i got them, gonna increase early next year when i get my 3" lift. We have a guy in our body shop with the same wheels running 275/60/20, looks pretty darn good, but i am thinking more of a 285 option for me.

    Avoid the 18", tire sizes are limited...the most choices seem to be in 17" with 16" a close second. I am running my second set of rims as 17" with studded snow tires on them.
