I'm looking at getting some 20x12 Chrome Fuel Hostages (4.5" backspacing) and some new tires.

I have a 2003 F-250 with a 2.5" leveling kit. I'm currently running 33x13's on a 18x9 rim (4.5" backspacing) with no issues or rubbing.

What tires should I go with? I don't mind adding another leaf in the front to make it 3.5" or so, and some F350 blocks in the rear. I'm also planing on adding painted Bushwacker OE Style flares to compensate for the way the 20x12's will stick out. I'm also adding a dual steering stabilizer. Oh, and a chrome light bar with 4 7" HID lights mounted on it. :evil

35x12.50x20?
35x13.50x20?
305/55/20?
325/60/20?
Other?

Also, I like the Trail Grapplers, but I understand they are not available in every size. What tire should I go with? I can get the 35x12.50x20 Trail Grapplers new for $1,450, and I'm not looking to spend more than $1,500 on tires.

What do you guys reccomend?

I have 35x12.5x20 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's on stock 08 rims, The look great, ride great, and still have about 1/3rd to 1/4th of the tread left after 43,000 miles mostly city driving. I will definatly buy another set.

Yeah, but there's a big difference between an 8" wide rim and a 12" wide rim... LOL

Customer of ours runs the 305/55 on some 20x12's under his leveled 6.4, those things are damn wide. Don't think he has rubbing issues though.

Go with a 13.50 / 325. I have a 305 (12.50) on a 12" wide rim and I will definitely be getting 325's next time. I like the look of the tire being stretched out but the 305's are just a little too narrow for me.

Wise choice. Looks the best and the tires will wear better on that size rim. 20x12 and a 33 or 35 is just too short. If you're not running a 37 or taller the 12" wide rim is just too much IMO. Of course, I know there is quite a following on here for the short and fat look. Guess that kind of goes along with the way alot of people in the US look.:D

Lance's truck looks badass. I think these SS M16s just run a little skinny. I've been tempted lately to lower mine down and copy his setup exactly after seeing the truck in person. I'd do exactly what he has but I'm not sure I'd get the M16s again.
