Default Wheels n Tire Help ?

Ok looking for some custom wheels for my new 2011 laramie and have a few i like so far just wondering if i should stay with 20' or go up to 22' ? And as far as tires go i am lost with no idea. I dont want anything offroad as these will stay on till winter then going to put original wheels n tires back on for the winter weather. So any help on who makes nice tires what, might look good with the new wheels would really help . Again nothing offroad but still want it to look like a truck and by that i mean not looking for something that belongs on a car or doesnt look right on my truck.

Take a look at discount tire or tire direct online. Both have good viewers so you can sort of see what they would look like on your truck. They also have the 22 and plus size tire recommendations.

Almost any 22" wheel looks goofy in my opinion, to much wheel and not enough rubber
I would stick with 20", the tires will be a little more inexpensive as well

My opinion/ 2cents.

I prefer big tire small rim. That said I have seen some very happy truck owners with big spinning chrome rims. I am assuming you are looking to make your truck more of a show truck or maybe just a mall crawler.

Happy modding.
