20" rims & tires

Hey Harley owners, I am about to order a f250 lariat and hear nothing but bad things about vibration with the 18" rims with continnental tires. Now that the lariat has 20" rims and goodyear wranglers as an option I was wondering how the 20" rims and tires work on your harleys.

I have the 20's with Goodyear GT2's and I love them. Only complaint is that they wear a little quick, but they provide decent winter traction considering the width. Hope this helps.

I don't think so--if I'm correct, the AT/S is an off-road type whereas mine are more the touring I guess. They definately don't have any knobbyness--prolly why they are so smooth. Actually, you can sort of see the tread in the pics in my gallery--the third one especially.
Cheers,
Jake

I had the factory harley rims and tires on my 2005 Harley F-250 the goodyear at/s run quiet and smooth. The 20" factory option is nice. I currently have 22's with mud terrain tires, totally different ride.

By totally different do you mean better/worst or just as good but different than the at/s.

Louder and rougher(due to the 7"lift), the at/s were smooth and quiet.

I just ordered a 2006 Harley F250 and have been looking all over for Heavy Duty aftermarket wheels. Where did you find yours?

www.wheelpros.com or www.tires.com which is discount tires, or just do a search for 8 lug rims, the lug pattern is 8x170mm, pay attention to the offset or backspacing, if its has positive offset you might need a lift or they'll rub. I didn't know they were coming out with a 2006 Harley davidson F-250.

I have known for awhile that they were coming out with one but I couldn't order it until December 5th. Now that it is ordered, I have to sit and wait!!!
