help me pick a wheel size

Alright my lift will be here tomorrow and I still havent picked out wheels and tires. I have a 2011 F250 lariat with 18" stockers now. I am running a 4.5" lift and I am trying to decide on 18" wheels or 20" wheels. I plan on running 37s I believe. Will it look retarded with 18"s and 37s? If anybody has pics of this setup with 18"s and 37s that would be great. I am torn between two tires the nitto trail grapplers or the toyou open country mt's Mainly use the truck on pavement but it will see trails every now and then!

I personally love the look of tall sidewalls and I personally had a set of 37 inch tall toyo mt and while they were loud, they lasted a long time and cleaned up great in the mud.

I ran the nittos on my f150 and they where great! I traded the truck in with 50,000 miles and had 49,000 miles on the tire they had about 50 percent life left maybe less!

I'm having this dilemma now where the selection of 37x13.50R18 tires are very little, and I should have bigger tire outside diameter to go with the lift height.
I do prefer more sidewall as well. Yes the Open Country MTs come in that size, but not all that much else. Mud Grapplers and Trail Grapplers do as well, but only 12.5" wide.

There are more options for 20" wheels and they retain a Load Range E rating at those sizes whereas 37" tires on 18" wheels are all Load Range D. (I just don't want to be buying wheels again unless I get a crazy good deal, and this would mainly be a visual appearance upgrade and I wouldn't gain much more vehicle capability other than improved axle ground clearance.) - Other than the lack of product selection I would definitely go for 37s on 18s and I am still looking. Let us know what you decide.

2011 F-350SD SRW XLT FX4 CCLB: 6.7L PSD, 6R140, 3.55:1 EL, 11500lb GVWR
2009 Tundra SR5 4x2 RCLB 5.7L 4.30:1 (Sold)
Others: 1982 F-250HD 4x2 RCLB 6.9L-IDI // 1988 F-250HD 4x4 SCLB 7.3L-IDI // 1995 F-350HD DRW 4x2 CCLB 7.3L-T444E PSD // 2004 F-350SD SRW 4x4 CCLB 6.0L-VT365 PSD.
VIN details are accurate for the linked truck only, YMMV.

Well I'm torm I want 20"s but don't have the funds for them! I like my stock 18"s a lot just wish they where 20"s ! So because I have 18"s already on the truck I'll probably end up running 18"s with 37"s I was hoping someone had this setup on a 2011 with a 4.5" lift so I could see how it looked. I'll eventually get after market 18"s if I do go this setup but it looks as if rims are cheaper than tires.

I am putting the lift on next weekend and I'll probably roll on stock wheels and tires for a few weeks until I can come up with the money for tires!
