    Hi guyz, Ive been thinking about upgrading stock RUGGED TRAIL 16" RIMS/Tires. I want to get something like 18" or 20". What are some of the benefits going with bigger rims and lower profile tires ? I do not plan on lifting the truck in near future. Does lower profile tires affect my towing capacity of 6400LBs ?And when I am out shopping for new RIMS/Tires what do I need to look out for. Thanks.

    Should improve your handling slightly. The only problem; tires cost a whole lot more the bigger your rims :(

    16's are better for off-road and would be slightly cushier than 18's or 20's. Usually those rims are on street queens and you could expect a much rougher ride on anything but pavement. I'd say stick with 16's or 17's to maintain the functionality of your TRD OR
