20x14 rims wrapped in 36x15.5x20 tires

Will this setup work on a 03 F350 with 6 " of lift? Eventually I'll lift it more but wanted to see if this setup would work on a daily basis for now?

I'm thinking you will have clearance issues with rubbing the leaf springs. If you had a coil sprung SD you could make it work. IMO

Depending on the backspacing of the wheel, you will most likely rub leaf springs or destroy the back edge of your front wheel wells. Another thing I notice lately is that people are putting too wide of wheels on their tires. Doing this CAN be very dangerous. I once had 12.50" wide tires on 12" wide wheels and I actually split the bead on three of the 4 tires... leading to one blow out and two that just lost air while parked (luckily)! Every tire has a specific wheel width "range" and a 15.50" tire probably requires a 10"-12" wide wheel. If you do it, please be careful.... I had a very bad experience.
