18s or 20s for f150???

so ill be gettin my taxes back in about a month and im thinkn about gettin a set of wheels OR tires. im stuck between 18s or 20s. the wheels i like look awesome in 20s but idk how theyd look in 18s. i like the kmc monsters, rockstars, etc. ive also looked up tires for 20s and they are freakin outrageous as hell and if i get 20s id have to save and wait bc i cant afford tires and wheels at the same time ATM. so if i get 18s, what are some black rims that would look ok in an 18 (other than addicts bc another member has them and i dont wanna copy). so does anyone know how the 18" mosters look?

20s look way better in Rockstars then 18s. The 18s are too bunched up.

i dont plan on gettin a tire over 35. ill most likely get the 34" bfg ATs. do you think the mosters would look bad in an 18"? 2 of my friends have the rockstars on their chebys. only person ik of w/ mosters is a buddy w/ 20" chrome ones on his gmc.

My next set of wheels/tires will probably be 17s!

Check load ratings on 20" wheels, a lot of them have lower load capacities that you might care about towing a goose neck. At least they use to, I haven't looked in a while.

Why buy a wheel the same size as what you already have?

20's or keep stockers.

18s and 35s there isnt that much sidewall imo. i day 18s unless you are going bigger than 35s.

idk about load ratings on wheels. i know a ton of people running 20s on 3/4 tons and goosenecks.
