yeah, im looking at some 2 Crave Wheels No4 20x9.5 Black with a smaller tire to get that slightly lower look but not sure if the 20s will be as attractive as the 22s.

I'd go 22's on lowered/low profile look, just my .02 though. InDeepWaterBlue (Steve's) truck looks pretty sharp on some 22's.

I don't know if this helps but I ran 285/55-20's without problems with a 2/4 drop on 3rd gen. The tire was 31" tall. I went with a shorter tire and had to drop just a little more to keep the same wheel well look. I'm using a 28 inch tire now and 3/4.5 drop. Good luck..

Edit: I meant 285/55-20 on 08 rims. Not 285/60-20.

This is a picture when using 08 Clads (285/55-20)

My 31" tall 305/45/22's fit with a 2/4 drop with no problem. Diameter the same as the old stock 20's

yeah, I think I'm actually going smaller with the Goodyear Eagle GT2s with 275/45/20s. Not going off road any and the roads in central Florida aren't near as rough as they are in Louisiana so I should be good with that. There's a 6.5MPH difference at 60MPH but it shouldn't be that bad.
