    oMG!how long does it take you to park it? What’s the width of your truck with those wheels in relation to the garage opening. I bet the surround camera is a huge help

    Just out of curiosity, why would the MY20 have potentially less issues compared to the MY18?

    I have to back in and I use my mirrors. My tires are about an inch wider than the fenders. I like that look. I'm getting better at it.

    The look is definitely worth it. I prefer it as well

    Angelo1 I dont know if the 20’s have less than the 18’s. All I know was the 18 was spending way too much time in the dealers garage rather then my garage.

    This is the reason I don’t go method. I really like how they look, but it seems like 9 out of 10 raptors with aftermarket wheels running around SoCal has them.

    I agree with NASSTY and BIG BLUE. Wheel preference is subjective. The real question I have is about any performance difference. I have ordered my 2020 raptor and I'm conflicted about the wheel choice. I was set on the oem forged wheels because I believed they were stronger and lighter than the OEM cast wheels and other cast wheels in general. I recently learned that the forged oem wheels are actually 7lbs heaver than the oem cast wheel option. SO no I am contemplating after market options. Do any of you out there with 20'' wheels notice any performance decrease due to the heavier wheels? I know that there will be an increase in traction on pavement and dirt to the larger wheel. Any decrease in turning radius due to the larger wheel? Should I stay with a 17'', 18'' or 20" I think an 18'' is a good option, but I would like to hear from some of you about the performance aspects. I definitely want the lightest wheel I can afford. I am cognizant of the benefits of unsprung weight in turning and starting and stopping. Thought?
