tire size with new lift

I am having a 4.5 inch lift installed on my 2012 lariat on Monday. I have a great deal on toyo open country AT 2s for 325 x 60 x 18 with wheels for 1600.

However, i was wondering how it would look if I just kept my stock wheels and went with a 325 x 60 x 20

aslo, is this tire size going to be to narrow?

would this look good or will the offset of the stock wheels look awkward and will it rub?

also, will I need to get the computer flashed to correct the speedo.

I have an 08 with 325/60/20 on stock 20" wheels and a 4.5" lift. I have minor rubbing only on my radius arms at full lock. I think this tire size is going to become the new 35" tire. I like it since it's just a tad bigger than 35s but it doesn't look silly like 37s.

I put 325/60R20 tires on my stock 2006 rims on my truck with a 2.5" leveling kit. They rub slightly at full turn, mainly when going over uneven terrain. No rubbing otherwise. I like the look of a wide tire on a narrow rim, and really like keeping the stock wheels.

Tires this size are going to run you close to what you are paying for the tires AND wheels in the 18" that you found though.

No. I have a tuner (H&S) which recalibrates your speedo for your tire size. It is available for 11-13s, too.
