    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    Just watch your backspacing, a 20 is going to be a wide rim and might hit the cab mount. I know my 18's are really close to the mount. Also I am sure you already know this but if you are using the truck offroad 20 are not the best idea. My 18's are a little big even with 285 65 18s I sometimes could use more side wall. Just a thought if you plan to go offroad. if I was to do it over again I would run 17's but I do go offroad from time to time.

    Thats mostly to do with tire size as opposed to wheel size. I'm running 275-60-20's and yes they are close to the cab mount under lock to lock steering, but haven't heard them scrape once. I did however have to do some trimming to the inner fender walls for clearance. But if you wanted to avoid those issues, you can just run 275-55-20's and there is a good selection of A/T tires in the size. The only problem with running a lower profile tire offroad is how much your able to deflate without sacrificing the rim... otherwise your still more than capable to do aggressive offroading. I'd say its more driver ability than 17" versus 20" in an offroad situation (given your running the same tires). Just for the record I'm running spidertrax wheel spacers up front to clear the UCA's as well. ;)

    Here's a link to some pics for reference to the op.

    my truck looks a little different now, but you get the idea of the setup....

    I really like the look of your truck, although i just went to the cooper website to check the specs on that zeon tire and i dont see a 275/60r20? I do see a 275/65r20?

    Also, do you know the offset/backspace on the wheels you are running?

    I am going to try to run a 295/55r20 nitto trail grappler...specs on that tire are 32.9 diameter and 12.5 width....

    Again, nice rig!

    Thanks.

    As far as tire sizing... I know they make them, cause they're on my truck. lol If you go to the dicount tire direct website you can see the different sizes they have in stock there, as well as a bunch of tire options. Good luck with your search, you can't go wrong with the Nitto's... very nice tire!
