Keep my 18s or go with 20s

Does anyone have any pics of an OBS CCLB with 20s? Mine is a 97 CCLB with 18s and 37s on a 6 inch lift. I will need new tires soon and I am thinking of going with 35s instead of the 37s. A lot better choice and price. I was thinking of getting a whole new set of 20s and 35s. Was thinking TOYO ATIIs and 20x12 Moto Metal 962s.

I can get a good deal on Federal Couragia MTs but the most practical tire is an AT.

Smaller wheels don't look bad at all on these trucks but the price difference is really not that much more for 20s (tire wise) and the choices are more widespread.

Thanks

Here is my truck as it sits. Centerline 18s and Interco Vortrac 37x12.50s

That's a good looking truck. My vote is to stay with 18s.

x2 on the 18's, that truck looks good. I think its all about the rim to sidewall ratio. If you went with 20's I would go with a taller tire to keep the look.

Thanks for the responses everyone. I am leaning towards the 18s just to save some money but if I did 20s I think I would go with 37s. I have 37x13.50s on 20s on my 6.4 and I think that is great combo for sidewall to rim ratio.

There are just to many choices.

Well, a forced decision was made today at work. The sidewall split on one of the 37s on the truck and went flat. Luckily I was already at work and parked (drive about 65 miles one way).

No fixing b/c of the sidewall so I took the tire and wheel off and got a ride to National Tire and Wheel in Wheeling WV. Priced a nice set of 37x12.50r18s (just tires) and for the heck of it, a whole new set of wheels and tires.

I ended up with a whole new set. Pro comp 17x9s (similar to MT Classic IIs) and 35x12.50r17 Nitto Trail Grapplers, lugs, center caps, mounted/balanced, all for about $130 more than just new 37s.

About a half hr of getting them mounted/balanced and back to the ROW we went. Changed all four out in the sticks on the ROW in 4F temps. The sun was out so it was actually nice.

I like these even better than the 18s. This is def the prime set up for an OBS I would say now after actually seeing em on the truck.

National Tire and Wheel in Wheeling WV is awesome. Great prices and they have pretty much anything you could want in stock (they have huge warehouse). Being in a bind and the quick walk in service with no excuses of previous appointments, blah blah blah, was awesome.
