Default First time truck owner has a ?

I just bought a 2011 Ram 1500. The tires it has now are 260/60/17. I'm looking at replacing the wheels with Moto Metal Skulls but don't know if I should get 17's, 18's, or 20's. I guess the question I have is, given the tire size stays the same, 260/60, and the only change is the diameter, how much would the truck height change between wheel sizes. Thank you very much for any input.

The 260/60/17 will be smaller in height than the 260/60/20. If you wanna go with the 17" wheel get a 285/70/17 size tire because stock will look just weird on new wheels. I'm not exactly sure what size to go with on a 20" wheel. As far as what size wheel you should get, I'd say 18. 17's sometime look too cramped, and 20" Skulls would looks kinda weird.

Go with 20s, I went with 18s to save a little cash but I have regreted it ever since. They look good but if your gonna spend money anyway might as well do it right the first time. JMO

After that last reply i googled the skulls to see what they look like. After seeing them I think the more important question is what kind of tire your gonna go with, by looking at the style of the wheel I think any tire that isnt aggressive is gonna look funny on that wheel. I would do alot of image searches before you decide

Definitely going with an aggressive tire, still haven't decided which one. I just made up my mind on wheels. I am only going to do a leveling kit since I have to keep the height of the cab reasonable ( my mom is only 4'10'').

No, I'm in San Diego. Iv'e tried looking for pictures, but it seems like most people like to keep the stock wheels. So if there are any people in San Diego with after market wheels that I can check out personally, please let me know.
