20" Factory Rims

Looking to find out what folks are doing with tire replacements on the non lifted 2018's with factory 20" magnetic painted rims.

Love the wheels would maybe like a wider / taller tire.

Pictures please

Iím looking for a set of the factory 20s in Cali if anyone has a set laying around!! In for pics!!

i think the safe and typically recommended oversized tire for the factory 20s is a 295/65R20 which measure in the neighborhood of 35 x 11.5 (ish depending on manufacturer).

I have the exact same setup.

Its the "truck should have came with it size" just enough to make it look a little more balanced.

Faceplant, what backup lights are those? Those look real nice and I like the idea of not cutting my rear bumper up in a state that salts the roads.

Mine are the factory chrome but also wrapped in KO2s. I opted for factory size though, and with the stiffer snow plow springs, Iím pleased with the look. Just the KO2 vs the stock Michelin looks better IMO.

I strongly considered this. The price for the 275 vs 285 is significant. I worked out a trade with the dealer. I traded stock 18" wheels and tires for the 285/65/20's, I provided the machined 20's which I purchased from ebay for $800. My truck is the camper package, and I wanted that package knowing I could always add the wheels....

Anyhow if I was buying out of pocket it would have been hard not to just buy the 275.

Yes KO2s. I've run them for a while. Love em.

I used a piece of alum angle to attach them to a bumper bracket.

295/65/20 Toyo MTs. The 295s are the perfect size as they will fit a non lifted/leveled truck, but still have enough height to look good under a leveled truck. (They measure out right at 35.5"'tall) Plus, they have a 4K weight rating.

My apologies for such a newbie question but I don't hear of people re-gearing when they go bigger with the tires. Having a Jeep JK and living in those forums that's all that people talk about is re-gearing to get their torque back up after going with large tires. Is this just not that big a deal due to the power behind of the PowerStroke? I was sort of shocked to realize that 3.55 was the lowest you could go when shopping for my Super Duty.

Or is it mostly the nature of the beast... pulling and hauling vs. rock crawling?

Mostly asking because I was going to bump up to a 35" tire on my new 2018... wasn't stressing over the one extra inch on diameter but was curious.

Thank you

Short answer is 935 FT/LBS of torque.

If I ever bump up to 37s, I'd consider a 4.10 swap. There are limited choices for the M275 Dana guys at the moment. 10.5 equipped trucks have tons of options though.

LOL! Yeh I guess that is a little more then the V6 on a Wrangler JK puts out... would having the 4.10 standard with factory wheels be way too much on the Power Stroke?

First, Iíd say very few people deviate from stock diameter by even 10%, so oversized tires on a Super Duty is a little different from oversized tires on a Jeep. Second, youíre correct in your point that the nearly 1000 lbft of torque from the 6.7 makes it barely noticeable. Third, youíre also correct that most people will mod the Super Duty toward highway manners, where you donít want to have 5.xx gears roaring away if you donít have to.
