tire / rim question

right now I'm runnin 285 75 16's.
there is a pic of an OBS runnin 20's. I tried to copy the pic but it wouldn't transfer.
If I were to go to 20" rims what would I be compromising? Would that put my tranny in a spot? Would it make the truck ride rougher? I know when you start messin' with stuff, there's a give and take. Thanks to all.

More $ for tires and a stiffer ride. Your tranny will not be affected if your staying with the same tire height.

I switched to 18" rims with tires to keep my overall diameter the same since the original tires have such a high sidewall. Came in handy when I had a blowout and needed my original spare.
