Going from 20's to 17's

Ok, guys. I am looking at having to buy tires soon. I want to hear your opinions on going from stock 20's on an 06 to 17's. Their is a lot wider range of tire sizes by the tire manufacturers, not to mention cheaper. Just want to hear from those of you who may have done this or have 17's on your truck. Is their any reason not to drop down to a 17? From what I am seeing, a 33 or 34 inch tire on a 17 is about $60 bucks cheaper than the same tire in a 20.
Also, anyone know what the backspacing is on the stock 20's on an 06? Have searched and could not find a thread with a definite answer, but I may have overlooked it.

Thanks, Tank! I really think I am going to switch to 17's. Lot more options on tires sizes than 20's.

94f250,
I think I am going to hold on to my 20's, might get a wild hair to put them back on one day. Thanks for the offer!

I dont think you can fit 17s on there because of the caliper size, i have 20s on my 06 lariat and the smallest i can go is 18s. 94f250 PM sent
