Iam wanting to go with 20x10 eagle alloy 511's

IMO 33 inch tires look small on a Super Duty. The stock tires are 34 inches tall. I plan on going with 35s.

that's basically a 33x12.50. I know when I went to my 33s I have now I had to get my speedo recalibrated because it was reading atleast 5% faster than what I was really going. I took it to the ford dealer and after a 70 dollar bill I was good to go.

just my .02 but I woulda rather had 35s on my truck than the 33s, they do look a little small and at highway speed I am really turning some RPM. too bad theres no way I could've cleared 35s with my 20x12 wheels, im close to scrubbing now.

Go with the Toyo in a 35x12.50, I'm not sure on the fuel but Toyos have never done me wrong and I get great mileage out of them, just remember to rotate then every 3-5k and they will last, my avg milage is 50k on a set and they still have tread left when I sell them. I even went back to them after trying a few different brands.
