Yeah, I'm thinking 265/50r20 nitto Terra grappler g2s, on 20x9 rims, anybody have experience running that size on stock suspension?, or with Terra grapplers in general?

Same diameter as own tire, 1.5" wider outboard, same backspacing.

Sorry if I'm in the wrong thread, new at this. Will post pics soon, looks pretty great right now, running bfg K02s for winter.

Here's some updated pics of my 06 X
It's got a fairly new set of 265/70/r16 Cooper Discoverer ATPs, a 30" LED bar that I installed myself, new black headlight housings, and a cheap Pioneer head unit that has USB and AUX capabilities. I've also debadged the rear, and added a Flowmaster 40 series muffler. This thing sounds extra mean!!! I'm planning on adding the leveling kit and some other small goodies here and there in the near future. (Keep in mind I'm still in High School so my budget is limited :( )

It looks good. :thumbsup: What size wheel spacers do you have on there, 1/2"?

As of right now they are 1.5" inch spacers, I would like a little more stance to it so upgrading to 2" ones would be a possibility. I'm also planning on buying some 16x8 steelies with 0 offset to replace the 16x7 stock rims that have a 44 offset, so that should help to where i don't need to add more spacer. I'm really itching to get the level kit before i do anything else though. :thumbsup:
 


















2010 Explorer Limited V8 with Flex 20" wheels

I just got done installing these wheels on my wife's Expo. Purchased these wheels new from a guy on CL, OEM Edge or Flex. The tires are Cooper 265/50R20. I did need to get the hub bored out bigger to fit the Explorer. It cost me $180 total for all 4 to get it done.

It's been a while since I've done anything to the Ex. Just purchased an Expedition for the family, so I'll be doing more upgrades to the Ex shortly. Added new wheels this past weekend. Black 16x8 ProComps. The 265 75 16 Dynapro ATM ties look much better now than with the stock rims. Needs a lift though, but won't do it unless I get the extended upper control arms.

Yea, now with the new wheels I had slight rubbing on both sides, since they stick out some. Had to trim the running boards on the corners at an angle without affecting the look. Driver side needed more trimming. Had to take a bit off the inside of the fender flare too. Lift would probably eliminate some of the trimming needed .
 






I took it to the desert yesterday. I even got to use 4 low!
