    I'm running 275/55/20 tires, on 20/8.5in" Factory Alloy Rims, the tires have a Section Width 10.8in"s, same as the 275/70/18's.....and I've had no Issues or Problems with this setup.

    I would also mention.......if you Install a Larger Overall Diameter Tire, then what you have on your Truck Now......Keep in Mind, your Trucks Computer Calculates your Trucks Speed based on the Diameter of the Stock Tires. by installing Taller or Shorter Tires, the Trucks Computer doesn’t know how Fast the Truck is going. As a Result, the Automatic Transmission may Not Shift Correctly and the Speedometer Readings will Not be Accurate(as required by law)......and You Should and/or Need to have your Trucks Computer reprogrammed for this Change in Tire(Overall Diameter)Size.
