What size tires for these rims?

I found some rims on craiglist and was wondering what tires you would suggest for the size.

The rims are Chrome KMC XD Rims, model number XD778 - MONSTER, 20x9 inch with a ford 8 bolt pattern.

What size tires would be perfect for these? 35's or 34s?

Any suggestions on stores to buy tires at? I would like to go somewhere where I can pay them in payments within 6-12 months with no interest.

I see in your sig you have a 4" lift. I would go with a 35x12.5" tire. Its a very common size and plenty of option!

Is 20 inch rims a lot different than 22?

Would that tire size you suggested be fine with a 5 inch lift?

The rims are 20x9 would it be ok size wise if I get the 35x12.5s ?

Would it ruin the tred?

While this ONLY works on new tires, run chalk across the tread and adjust psi until there is little to no chalk left on outer edges. Don't be surprised if you're down at 40 psi or less. I have 35x12.50s on a 10" wheel and run 40 psi.
