    I got an 08 F250 FX4 with the 20" rims I am about to turn 41k and will need tires soon. What are you all buying? Got any pics? I think this will be the last time I buy a vehicle with 20" rims I have been quoted almost $1,400 for BFG A/T installed. They look so good though.

    I bought Goodyear for my F-350 with 20's. Been real happy with them. Mine are almost 2 yrs old now. But when I bought them there were only 2 options for 20's. I paid $800.00 OTD.

    Price a set of 16" rims and tires, might be cheaper. If not this time, then next time.

    Im not sure about the Fords but dodges have gone to 17" rims to accommodate larger brakes and calipers.

    Decent 18" tires aren't much cheaper.

    I believe the smallest he can run is an 18.

    We all run Nitto's on our stuff. They do good.

    Or you can buy some Mastercraft, or off-brand tires for it that are cheaper, and will do just as well.

    I run Goodyear Duratrac on our Ford Superduty's. My 08 uses the 20" stock wheel. Best upgrade to the truck thus far. My price on them was right around the $1200 CDN mark installed.

    The last couple sets of tires I have put on the truck are Mastercraft courser CT's and they wear great and have good traction! the Nitto tires are a good brand as well!!

    rimzoneonline.com is a great place for tires/rims!!

    what size nittos did you all go with? found this nitto size 275/55R-20 for $195 seems like a good price. I have 275/65R-20 now. Will it make a big differance? it is just lower profile right?

    Just a lower profile, yeah, I use 1010tires.com's tire calculator to compare them.

    Shop around and you can find a little better. If you are going to keep it a long time and want to save money on tires go buy stock 17's or a set of Micky thompson 17's (don't look bad for about $120 a wheel). 17in tires are much more affordable. Put 285x70x17 bfg at ko's on our plow truck for about 770 bucks.

    I have the Goodyear Duratrac on my 08-250 with 20" wheels. They are great tires so far with about 5,000 miles on them. They hum a little bit, but not annoying at all. I paid about $1,200 installed from our local ford dealer. They priced match the tires, so I found the cheapest price online and gave them the quote.
    Good luck!

    Will the lower profile throw off the speedo or computer? I got a guy here who has 17" rims for sale too. but I think I will go with the Nitto.

    Just buy the Toyo M/T's. A little more expensive but you wont find a better tire for all around performance, look, and wear...
