    255 55 R20's to replace 255 50 R20's

    I've searched and searched the interwebs and this forum for an answer. I'm simply wondering if anyone has replaced their 255 50 20's with 255 55 20's.

    Tire size for dd/tow/mild off road 2000 xlt

    I've read all the forums about how large of a tire to get with each lift. I've searched looking for tire recommendations for daily drivers. That yielded more of a "how many people are running 35" and 33" on their dd's" than anything. Not really what I'm looking for. I personally was thinking...
