06 20 in wheels on Excursion

Anyone done this on here? I know I have to have spacers which I have already ordered. What size tires can I run? Truck is stock height, not interested in lifting it. Any help is greatly appreciated

06 20 in wheels on Excursion

Cary at CT Performance (Excursion expert) told me that OEM 20" need 2" spacers or if you cut the studs down you can use 1.5" spacers. I'm hunting for OEM 20" locally right now for my Excursion. Next on my wish list is '08+ axles for bigger brakes.

I decided to go with 18 in Lariat takeoffs, I ordered 2 in spacers already. According to what I found the 99-03 Ex's have 2 in studs and the 04-05 Ex's have 1.5 in studs. A 2 inch spacer is required for all years. I shouldnt have to grind studs at all but we will see once they get here. I will post updates as I go along

I just tested out a set of 18'' lariat wheels (275/70/18 I think) on my X. No spacers, no lift, 2wd. 2 days of driving. A little rubbing when parking but none when turning on the streets.

Maybe I borrowed a bad set.... the offsets are different then the stock 16s I guess and the wheels looked sucked in to much for me. Driver side looked almost flush, BUT, the passenger side front wheel look like it was sucked in half an inch more then the drivers side. They didn't drive as nice as my stocks either. They may have just been way out of balance, and worn tires, but the truck would pull hard to the left with the Lariat wheels, not at all with the stock 16's though.

And the 5 spoke Lariat 18's each weigh 4 lbs more then the stock excursion 16's I have.

Here is a test fit pic. 275/65/18 Terra Grapplers. 2 inch spacers, no trimming of factory studs. Wheels stick out about 1/4 inch past factory. Will finish the install this weekend

Looks good! the 20" wheels that are late model take offs are 34.1 inches tall and look a bit big even with the V\B spring change.

These are the 18" Tom. I had a set of 20" and traded them for the 18". The only thing I do not like about them is the gap between the locking hub and the center cap. I may try and find a rear set of center caps for the front so you cant see it. I always keep my hubs in auto anyway. Hopefully the weekend weather cooperates and lets me finish the install. Now to decide if I keep the factory 16's or sell them.
