    I'm looking to buy either 20" kmc addicts or kmc hoss' and im wondering a good tire size to run with them. I have(yet to install) a 3" toytec ultimate kit and need some recomendations for tires and sizes. Something aggressive but streetable and size-wise, something with not too much trimming. Any help would be appreciated.

    personally i think that 20's are way to big. i think that most people on here will probably think the same thing.

    by an aggressive look do you mean like the tire tread? because with rims that big i dont think you'll find an aggressive tire for it anywhere

    Yeah, 20" don't get too much love here. There is a Dodge with 20"s at my chruch that is running the Cooper Zeon LTZ's (i think it's LTZ) that look REALLLLLLLLLLLLL nice and have an aggressive look to them.

    I ended up going with the Pirelli Scorpion ATR's 275/55. They rub a tiny tiny bit when I making hard turns, but only on the mud flaps, which I will either take off or dermal down. I am thinking the latter option, since I kinda like the look with them on....

    There's plenty of aggressive tires available for 20's. Nitto offers their full line 20" and up just to name one manufacturer. Nowadays most full sizes run a minimum of 20" tires if they are running both street and offroad so there are plenty of options. Hell, I have even seen some aggressive crap in 22".

    Cooper make the Zeon LTZ which are a better version of the nitto terra grapplers (In my opinion) and close to the same price. They make them in 275/55/20 which is like a 32 and a half. I have the 275/45/20 on my truck and they fit perfectly with no rubbing (I have no lift.) I highly recommend them if you want a really good looking and long lasting tire. I have had mine over 20,000 miles and can barely see that they have worn at all. I have the KMC SPY rims and with these tire they stick out about an inch out from the fender flares which makes for a very aggressive look. They are only available through Discount Tire and you can normally negotiate with them very well especially if your military or law enforcement. They also have the interest free card for 12 months if you don't want to pay it all at once. You can also get those rims from them to even though their website does not show it, they use an outside company called Wheel Pros which carried almost everything. Lastly 20 inch rimes look awesome and to hell with what other think

    I wish i could remember I want to say it was plus 9 or maybe 19 but don't trust me. I know that the guys at Discount said they had to have outward offset and that the center hole is larger than normal. If you need the information I would call them, many people get rims from them and they have it all in there data base. Sorry I'm not much help
