I like those but I think I like our black factory 20's better. I just hate the pirelli's and that skinny sidewall.

thanks. to each his own. i liked my stock 20s too but in order to get the kind of tire i wanted on a 20" rim, i'd need a 4" lift which i did not want to do so i went down in rim size.

That is a good reason...I wouldn't want the 4" lift either. Make sure you post pictures after you get it all done.

Thanks, they are on but it was too dark to take pictures when I picked it up. Will post tomorrow.

Funny thing is they had to do some trimming. I have seen many with the same setup that didn't.

Alright, I was wrong...those wheels and the screws around the outside look better than our 20's. Which lift did you go with and how many mpg did you lose?

That looks great. Mine is silver and I didn't like the black stripe but it looks good on the black.

Glad to see another person stepping down to 17 inch wheels. I did the same on my Fx4, tired of paying premium for 20 inch rubber and I like the way the 17's looked. Curious to hear some reviews for the new style Toyo A/T's from you. Good looking truck!

Thanks. Too soon to tell on mpgs but I am sure it will be a few.
I agree on the black stripe. I will report back after a while of use

I prefer chrome steel myself, but its a sharp lookin truck.

I have never wanted to change the rims on any vehicle Ive ever bought from factory till they started putting 18-20's on them... I just dont care for the big rims at all. I have 18's and dont like them, wanted to go back to a 15" but have heard they wont clear the brakes.


It's hell eatin em live

thanks. i can see that. i one shop tell me the 17" would be an issue. he was wrong - Raptors come stock with 17"s. ford dealer confirmed 17"s would work and proof is in the picture. i would suspect 15 is too small though.
