18" or 20" wheels

I have searched till i`m dizzy on this topic.I am looking at 325/60/20 duratrac`s on 12"x9" xd badlands,sticker stock to say the least.I read some threads saying that the towing weight went way down on that combination.So my question is what are the max weights on that set up? (2010 f350 cc sb srw)From what i have read the same set up in 18" is better but i really like the look of the 20`s .Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

An important fact is the wheel load capacity. XDs are around 3,600 pounds while the original 18" and 20" are 3,525 pounds. The tire capacity could be above that but there will be the wheel limitation anyway. After fall in a hole, one of my truck's original 20" had a 3" crack between two spokes, it was repaired and the tire is still running as nothing.

I run 18's on my truck. I love the look of the 20's like you, but I couldnt justify the cost, and load of a 20. I think my 18's still look good on my truck, so Im happy.

ok so my limit numbers are for the duratracs them selves,,, so you have to go with the wheel limitation of 3600lb.. those are more stout than stock, so i see zero issue as long as you operate your truck within factory payload guidelines...
