Going from 20" wheels down to 18"

2011 F250 CCSB 4x4

Truck came with 20" KR wheels and I am currently running a 285/65/20 BFG AT.

I am looking at selling/trading for 18" wheels but what size tires would give me the equivalent to my current setup which I believe comes out to a 34.8" tire.

Would I be better off just going with 35's?

Thanks

Also what is a fair asking price for the 20" KR wheels in great shape - no scratches or scuffs?

Going from 20" wheels down to 18"

I prefer more tire and less wheel. Thought I would get used to it and come to like them but after almost 40k miles I still don't like the size, love the wheel I just wish they were 17's or 18's.

Anyone know what a fair price is for these in good shape? I have found them on eBay for 390-450 but that seems really high.

Thanks

best size for 8" wide 18" wheels. Very few 35x12.5's are approved for a 8" wide wheel.

Those are made by only Nitto that I know of. Toyo makes a 285/75/r18 which is almost 11" by 35"

Going from 20" wheels down to 18"

Hadn't thought much about wheel width, thanks.

Any ideas on asking price for my set?

Ill look into the toyo's, any concerned towing with the (75) aspect ratio?

My tires have a load rating of over 4000 lbs per tire. So no worries at all. (They are still 80 PSI tires.

Oops I thought you were talking about my tires. The toyos http://tirefinder.toyotires.com/ are not rated as high on load or PSI as the Nittos.
