Went from 17" to 20"

This made a huge difference in curb appeal. Whatcha think?

Also how bad will speedometer be off? Better fuel mileage or worse? I have a 3:31 rear end.

Was 245/75/17 now 275/65/20

Thats the first thing i said to myself when i clicked on the pictures LOL

Looks great Bro! Speedo May be dead on now ? you will have to check it with a GPS or one of those Road way Speed checkers LOL

Most trucks I find are one MPH slow from the factory...

You also could get the Wife to drive the other car at a steady 55 or 45 depending on the road,while you follow her to get an ideal of where the Speedo's at LOL Thats the Red Neck Way :~)

Also you went from a 7.5 wide wheel to a 8.0 wide wheel

so now if you want you can level the truck and run a 35/12.50/20 tire
