Smile Rim size

I want to put some rims on my truck. I have the stock 20"... Can you fit 17" or 18" rims ? Or will the caliper get in the way ?

I have 17" wheels on my 2011. They are factory steel units. Can't wait to take them off.

not to get off topic but why in the hell would you want smaller wheels?

You will be fine with 18s. You should just put a leveling kit on it and run 325/12.50s on the stock 20s you will end up spending less money and the truck will look tough.

2011 F-250 King Ranch with a few mods:
8" ProComp XX Kit, 37x22 Nitto Trail Grapplers, 22x11 KMC Badlands, Amp Steps, H&S Performance Tune, FloPro 5" Exhaust System, Matching LinEx. More to come soon!

My truck had 18's on it from the factory and now has a set of 17 inch wheels, They look a lot better than the bigger ones. Wish I could fit a set of 16's on it but they won't clear, i have never like bigger wheels i always like a lot of sidewall. You won't have any trouble.

6" Fabtech Lift, looking to go a few inches shorter and higher quality
35" Toyo Open Country MT's
AFE stage 2

Studded and deleted
