Rims? 20 inch or 22's with 37's

Hi, I'm looking to get a new set of rims and tires for my truck, but I don't know what to get in terms of rim size. I know I want a 37 inch tire.
Anyone have any pictures of 20's with 37's and or 22's with 37's
I have a two tone black upper with a silver lower 2006 F350 SRW full 4 door with a 8 foot box.
Any recommendations, pic's, or pros/cons of 20's vs 22's would be very helpful.
I'll be getting a Icon 7 inch lift to go with the wheels.
Thanks in advance..

Here's a pic of mine when I bought it. It had 22's on it but I didn't want them but I wanted the truck. So I bought the truck. I'd say the plus to the 22's was that it did handle a little better due to the lower profile tire. But to me the biggest downfall was the price of the tires. I changed to 18 inch rims which was cheaper to buy a new set of rims and tires than it was to buy just tires for the 22's.

22's






So when I went to attach the pics I realized I don't have any of the truck with the 22's up close. Sorry all I got is the two I posted.

18's

I have 18's and wish I had went with 22's now , they look great on our trucks I have 7" of lift . My daughters BF had 22's on his 06 and it looked great thats when I started really liking that look . Tires are not real beefy but not thin around the rim looks great .I'd say 22!!!!!!!!!!
This picture shows how sporty it looks to me .


This is his truck when he had 22's with 37x13.50 with 6.5 to 7" of lift

Great choice with your truck there, I have an '06 f350 crewcab with an 8' box as well. I have a 6" procomp lift on 37"x13.50"v20" pro comp mud terrains and it looks great! the lift and tire size you chose looks great with the overall length of the crew cab and the 8' box. Personally I think the 20" rim looks best. It gives a good ratio of rim to sidewall of the tire. I'll post some pics as soon as I can so you can see what I mean

22 for sure, the 20's start to look small with the 37's.

Here is a pic of my truck with 20's and 37's, wish i had 22s with it

Mines OBS but its a 22 with a 38, i love how they look almost lowprofile

Go with 22's be be prepared to pay for tries. mine were 2grand just for rubber. But in all i think trucks with 22's and like A/T's or M/T's look amazing
