Speedogomer is on a distinguished road
Default Equivalent 17-18" tires to OEM 20's

After seeing the cost of aggressive off-road/winter tires for my 20" wheels, I'm looking at a set of wheels and tires in 17" or 18". For nearly the price of 20" tires, I can have wheels and tires with tpms in 17".

My question, to keep the tire diameter the same as the oem 20s,what size 17 or 18 tire would i need?

265/70/17 -4.2 percent versus 275/60/20
265/70/18 -1.2 percent versus 275/60/20
a better fit in 17" is 285/70/17 but hard to find winter in P. I believe you can find LT in 17" winter

^^ what he said. You'll want to go with 285/70/17.

285/70/17's and 275/60/20's are both 33" tires.
