How would this look?

So I have been running this idea through my head lately and I need some outside opinions on this. So I know I haven't had my helos very long but I am already getting tired of them, 16s are just to small and I want to go bigger... But how much bigger will still look good??? And will it fit???

No matter what I am sticking with a 33" tire(been looking at duratracs). Im thinking about going with an 18 or maybe even a 20 wheel and either 9 or 10 wide. Also alot of the wheels I like dont come in the right bolt pattern but Im thinking about just getting adapters to run the ones I really want. Would I be able to make this work with no to minimal tire rub?

So for example.... A 20x10 XD Rockstar with -24 offset and 4.56 bs
Would have to run an adapter and would either be 1.25 or 1.5 inches.



And for a tire BFG KM2 305/55/20(33.2x12)

Would that fit or rub like all hell? Like good or retarted? Anybody else went that big? Either 18 or 20 with a mud tire? Pics?

For the record here is how my truck sits now...



Okay go(flame shield is on)

The way the truck sits now is great! Personally I feel 18 or 20in rims is tacky on any truck, especially one with mud tires.

No way. Do not go above 16 on a 33 tire.. if you do it just looks tacky and its stupid IMO.

18s i dont think would be too much, 20s maybe though, but I agree that it looks good as is.

x2, My old man had these 24 inch chrome rims with 35 inch mud tires on his old superduty and it looked terrible. I think your current set up looks great.

i cant see spending that much to get a wheel an inch bigger that look fairly similar (ok sort of) that are that much more expensive.
also as mentioned on rps, a 305 is gonna be.. uh.. 20mm wider than the 285.

I just threw up the 20in wheel as an example... Most likely I would get an 18 and I dont see how thats too big... Personally I think an 18 would look great, but I wanted to know others opinions that have more experience with rangers than me.

I probably shouldn't have posted up the "bro-est" wheel possible in the op, that probably made alot of people hate my idea to start with lol.

what you have looks good, since you just got them not long ago its a bit of a waste. that's why I will just get 17 or 18s the first time. i'll probably just end up powdercoating my stock wheels until then.
