post picks of your big tires on stock 20''

justin_k's thread got me thinking about mounting stock 3rd gen 20'' rims on my 2nd gen 4x4. Since my truck has a four inch lift, i'd want bigger tires to fill-out the wheel wells (about 35's). So if anybody in here has this set-up, or any 20's with bigger tires then please post some pics to give me an idea. Does anyone make off-road tires for 20's? Thanks guys

Cool

This is mine (sorry, it's a 3rd gen... had 16.5's on my 2nd gen) and the tires are about 33 1/2"s tall.

There are several aggressive tires now for 20's such as Nitto, Toyo, Super Swampers and a couple others as well.

That's what i'm talking about, your set-up looks good. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for those tires?

The tires... I seem to be the only one with such a sweet deal... I got the tires and wheels for about 2.8K.

BTW, the sweet deal part was sarcasm... everyone else seems to get tires so much cheaper.

That is sorta pricey, but they do look good.

How do you like having the ctd compared to gas engine in a truck when it comes to daily driving?

Man, there is no comparison... lol This is the first diesel I've had and I'm not too sure I'll have my rig as a gasser unless it's a car I plan on hot rodding. My daily driving is about a 7 mile trip to work and back and maybe another 1 or 2 during the day for lunch or needing to come in for something. Other then that, I don't make but maybe 20 miles at max round trip anywhere here in town since it's small. I can be on it a fair amount and still get 16 mpg out of it... so I'll still easily get 350 or 400 miles on a tank no problem. But once you get them on the open road, that's when you'll really get good mileage. I went 1/3 tank on the freeway and the rest was spent on it every chance I had and still pulled out almost 550 on that tank.

And yea, it was kinda pricey for the tires and wheels... but when I got them, at the time there really weren't a lot of options out there so I was at the mercy of the market there.
