    Widest tires on Factory 20 rims

    I was just wondering. What is the widest tires that I can put on my factory 20 rims?

    I was thinking 285?

    I'm running 285's, and that's pretty much the widest you can go on factory 20" non SRT rims.

    On stock 20x8 wheels the widest tires should be 265. For a 275 or 285 tire to wear and perform properly, it needs at least a 9 inch wide wheel.

    I know like anything, people have done it, but it does'nt mean it's safe, especially with such a heavy truck.

    I just went through the same Q&A as you OP, and I ended up going with the OEM size of 265/50/20 and did not go bigger after reading up on this subject. I just ordered some Nitto 420S, should arrive at my house today actually.

    275/50r20 is an acceptable plus size for the stock 8" wide rim.

    What’s the general opinion on the tire height relationship. I see NITTO has the NT420s at 285/40r20, I’m wondering how this low profile would fit/ ride/ wear vs a 285/50r20. Any opinions on the matter would be appreciated.
