    Rim size change won't require adjusting the suspension. Changing the tire diameter and/or width might though.

    Size won't but offset/backspacing will make a huge difference on fitment

    right now I have stock 16"rims with 285 70 16 so what you are saying is if I got a 20" rim and 285 it will be about the same height as I have right now just smaller side wall right.

    Yeah a 285 is a 285 no matter what wheel its wrapped around. BUT I believe a wheel that is tucked in will clear the bumper much easier than one that sticks out more.

    The 285 is the section width in millimeters. The overall diameter of the tire is determined by the section width, aspect ratio, and wheel diameter.

    A 285 could be anywhere from 26" diameter to 36" diameter or more.
