Harley truck on 8" lift.. keep stock wheels??

I live in snow climate. so cheap chrome wheels are a nono.. if i go aftermarket they gotta be 20x12 so i can do a 15.50 tire on it.. im thinkig maybe go 37x13.5 on my stock wheels with wheel spacers???

I talked to a guy with harley wheels and he said they were almost 9" wide unlike the lariat 20's. if that is the case you are real good but many guys here running 13.50's on stockers i might even go that route. if you get a chance check the width of your wheel to clarify this rumor.

No need to run wheel spacers unless you just want to. I run 37x13.5 on the stockers without a wheel spacer without any trouble with rubbing.

Dunno if your misinformed or something but you dont need a 20x12inch wheel to run a 15.50 tire... I am running 15.5 on a 20x9.5 and it fits just fine....

The 20x12 was not a fitment issue. It was mainly looks. If you take a 15.50 tire and put it on a 9.5 wheel its gonna pull in the sidewall kinda ballooning the tire. Im a fan of a fat tire on a fat wheel. His truck will look sick on 20x12 and 38x15.50.

My advice:
Stop looking for cheap ways out. Save up the money. Do it right the first time.

The lariat wheels are 20x8" i had many talks with another member about his harley wheels he swore they were 20x9's he said he measured them to be like 8 3/4" wide that why i asked to be certain. i checked ford parts sites and only came up with 20x8's.
