Question for anyone with 20" winter tire's. What will work in northern Alberta and/or can I go to a smaller wheel for a better $$ value and keep the same handling characteristics. Unit is a 2010 all stock. Looking to buy wheels and tires and the best deal seems to be on tirerack but still looking at $1300-1400CDN for 20" set w/the sensors.

u can go for 17's with a set of 285/70/17s on there, same height as stock, not going to be cheap what ever way you go about it, a set of goodyear wrangler territory's with studs work great.

I have a set of the 17" steel work truck rims with pressure sensors on i could let go for a decent price, then youd only need tires.

Thanks for the reply's guy's. SO going with the 17's does not affect handling? What about mileage?

prob better due to lighter wheel.if your truck had 275/60/20's then a 285/70/17 should be fine

Just remember that the cost will be spread out over a longer life span of the tire with the swapping twice a year. My summer tires are still the factory Michelins!

Down here we have had some experiences with people importing vehicles which have snow tyres fitted. The innocent player not realising the difference continued to drive with them on and got into difficulties which resulted in deaths.
