Those are pretty cool. Remind me of some old school weld methods with rings!

Haven't checked in for months Months. You need more pics. And 20s bro? I'm not going to scroll back through 4 years worth of rhetoric but I'm pretty sure you and skyed have always sworn them off. I've always acknowledged less sidewall is bette fir towing and that's why we're not driving raptors (to tow). Balance is good in everything in life. Suprised to see you running 20s. They look purty. Won't find 20s on my prerunner but 22s on my superduty

Dan just realizes that he gets more Instagram Hearts when he post pics of 20's. LOL!

In reality certain 37's on 20's with the right tire pressure aren't horrible but their 17 and 18" counterparts will still ride better and support more weight.

When you start to get down to 35's on 20's or go up to 22's or 24's the ride just starts to degrade too much.

As far as shorter sidewalls being better for towing, it's actually the exact opposite. A good example would be to compare the Load Rating of comparable sizes of the ever popular 37" Toyo M/T.

The 17" version supports 4300 lbs at 65 psi and rides "great"
The 20" version supports 3860 lbs at 65 psi and rides "ok"
The 22" version supports 3420 lbs at 65 psi and rides "very stiff by comparison"
The 24" version supports 3085 lbs at 65 psi and rides "like a skateboard wheel"

The load rating on the bottom 2 sizes are lower than most D-rated tires in smaller wheel diameters. And if you look at the Load and inflation tables, the 17" version will support more weight at 50 psi than the 22" version will support a the Max psi of 65.

If the shorter sidewall is better for towing theory was correct then Semi's would all run 32"+ diameter wheels.

Let me put it in writing that I may run 20's at some point in the future but it will only be because I have money to burn and they "look cool". But there will never be a logical or practical reason unless I am trying to clear some gigantic brake setup. I ran a set of of 35's on 20's on the '11 for a few weeks to do a back to back test between those and 35's on 18's and the ride difference was very noticeable. And when I swapped from 35's on 18's to 37's on 17's the ride difference was astounding.

Lol great points. Interesting the load ratings you pointed out. I just meant there was less sidewall flex and that equates to stability to me, but as you pointed out, it's a balance. Good points. I'll get a new truck in a year or two and run your 4.5 kit and 37s. I'll run 22s again lol.

No worries,

I always tell customers that they can run whatever wheel and tire setup that they want. I just like to make it clear that although they are taking a few steps forward in ride and performance with certain suspension setups but then they may be negating some or all of that with certain wheel/tire combos.

As I said, do as I say, not as I do. I won't be complaining about my ride quality because of the 20s! lol

I look forward to your transition to the dark side!

Fitting a wide rim on a 4.5" lift takes commitment, kids. So it begins!
