So I love my stock chrome rims on my 2011 crew cab big horn, but eventually would like to do a lift and add a bigger tire - could I simply find tires that fit this rim?

Thanks,

Nick

You could do that
But tires with 20s are gonna cost A LOT more than tires with 17" rims
Some tires cost more than others and vise versa

35x12.50x17 - $321.51
35x12.50x20 - $389.80
Difference of $69.29 a tire, doesnt seem like a lot but with all 4 its $273.16

Its usually the width of the rim that is the limiting factor in tire choices. Your chrome clad stockers are 9" which is plenty wide for most 12" wide tires. Note that even with a lift wider tires may require you to use spacers to avoid rubbing. As others have noted the larger size tires in 20" are pricier than the smaller wheel diameters, but damn do they look nice!

Since 20" wheels are becoming more and more popular tire prices are getting closer and closer. You forget also that while he may "save" $60ish per tire, QUALITY wheels are going to cost $600-1200 for the set - much more than the difference in cost for the tires many times over.
