20s and 35s on a leveled f250

Anyone here ever fit 20x10 wheels with 4.5" offset and 35" tires on there leveled f250? Or do I need to plan on sticking with 20x9 or smaller?

Thanks for any info.

Rim size diameter never matters. 9-10" with 4.5" BS, 3" level kit will clear 35" fine.
If you need help-pricing on the required parts PM me.

Sounds good. Its a 2.5" leveling kit, but I assume .5" wouldn't make that big of difference. I've just heard a few say it may rub on the back of the fender and thats something I don't want.

Now I'm curious as to why the 2nd poster started his post with eeewww. Spider or something? haha

I think he is talking about a bigger rim with less sidewall. A more "gangsta" approach. But IMO I think 35s on 20s still looks good. Now 33s and 22s is pushing it a little but still just my opinion. Opinions are like @$$holes. Everybody has one and most of them stink.

Running 35s on 20s is still leaving pleanty of sidewall. Even by the roughest calculations, thats 15" of tire sidewall, or 7.5 inches of sidewall around the entire rim. (35" tire - 20" rim = 15" tire sidwall total)

Thats by no strech of the imagination anything simlar to 26" rims with rubber bands streched around them on a old caprice.

I don't like the look of small tires on huge rims either, but I have 35s on 16s now and its a little to 90s for me. All I need now is a roll bar with some kc daylighters strapped on top. I figured some 20s would be the perfect middle of the road look, not too much tire, and not too much wheel. I still have to be able to romp through muddy fields in the winter and spring, so anything bigger would be a bit ridiculous for a truck that sees farm work.

All the good looking new wheels are designed to look good bigger. I've seen some wheels that look good as 20s squashed down to 18s or even 16s and the look weird. I'm still considering 18s, but again, I think 20s would be a good middle of the road.

And, lets be honest, the new trucks come stock with 20s... Putting 35s on them is the same thing only my truck is already taller since its an early 99 and the rear blocks are an inch taller than all the newer trucks and its leveled.
