Default 2005 1500 20's to 17's?

A friend has a 2005 1500 and he wants to swap to a 17 or 18 inch rim, from 20's, so he can go with a larger tire. Any suggestions or combo's you can offer.

He wanting a bigger sidewall or just the tire in general? The stock 20s are a 33" tire. If he is wanting more sidewall and a taller tire I would recommend he keep the 20s, throw on a leveling kit, and go with a set of 285/65/20s or 295/65/20s (slightly over 35" tire). They will be expensive but I would guess no more than buying new rims.

If he is determined to swap to 17s or 18s I'm sure someone on here can tell you the best sizing and backspacing. I am only really familiar with the 20s.
