Wheels for 2011+ trucks

Hey guys, my 2011 F250 came with factory 20" wheels and the Michelins are almost toast. I am thinking about putting aftermarket wheels on and was wondering what diameter wheels will fit on these trucks.

I am thinking about dropping to a 17 or 18" package to reduce the price of the tires. I know 18" wheels will fit these trucks but will 17" wheels fit also?

Also how wide are the stock wheels 20x?

Thanks!

there are a huge selection of wheels to get, in a variety of diameters... i'd stay with 20's myself, but can understand wanting to save a few $$$..

Basically what I am trying to ask is what is the smallest diameter wheel that will work on these trucks. I dont want to order 17s and then not clear. I know 18"s will work because that is a factory option but will anything smaller work?

17's are the smallest you can go on 05 and up trucks due to the enlarged braking system compared to the older trucks that had 16's from the factory.

why do you want to go smaller?

because tires for a 17inch wheel are about half the cost of tires for 20inch wheels...would be my guess..

I went with 22" dick Cepeks and 33" Toyo open Country AT's. Excellent ride and fuel mileage and I get compliments all the time.

I found a pretty good deal on some Toyo AT tires. They are 325 65 18 tires which equate into about a 35x13x18... the only draw back is that they are D load and only rated for 50PSI. They have a load capacity of 3195lbs.

Do you guys think they will be sufficent for the truck (2011 F250 6.7)? Also what is involved in getting the tire pressure stuff reset? Do you have to have new sensors for the new wheels or can the original ones be re-used and reset?
