Rim diameter

I have 4 wheel disk brakes and sense I can't walk to do this my self I thought I would ask what is the smallest diameter rim that will bolt to our trucks? "Grace" is an 06 the brakes look huge!!!LOL I have 20" factory rims on it currently. I want to be able to drag race and looking for rims for drag tires. I was thinking a 16 inch would work?

Smaller than 17" won't clear the calipers. Supposedly, there are a few 16s that will work.

17" SS/T rims are the preferred rim as it is wide and light. Takes brake modifications to go to smaller rims.

Well that was easy!LOL I'm just trying to gather info so when I am able to walk again I know what to buy and do. So I guess 17' rims are on the hit list.

Run steel wheels like I did and screw 28/10.5/17 to them and ride or convert to the willwood setup Nathan runs and use 15" wheels

I've ran 3 different factory 17" wheels on my truck. But I've really had a soft spot for those 20s you have

I ran the 20" 06 rim, they look great IMO, but they are heavy.

I love my20's too!! I want the 17's for the strip. I need more side wall for great launches. So I think I will be looking for a set of steelies in like a 17x5 up front and a 17x8 in the rear. I am pretty sure I can get new wheels in custom widths. I just need this leg to finish healing so I can get back to work so I can start to buying some of this stuff!!!!LOL
