...20" ...why?
 






265/75R16, 285/75R16, 265/70R17 or 285/70R17 all sound much better - in my opinion.
 






i did that lift kit on my 2006 and love it have 255/70/16 on right now not sure how much bigger i can go would like to use 265/85/16
 






^You can go way bigger. I'm runnin 285/75/16's. I did do some cutting of the plastic inside the fender but no biggy
 












I think if you are going to lift the EX and throw 20's on it, I think 255's will look like rubber bands. I say go wider.
 






I have 255/70 16 with no lift and absolutley no rub.

The 2010 explorers have the P255/55/20 Tires as an option.
 






Note: 2010's w/20's are not lifted, they look great.
 






This what I ended up going with.

It's a factory SS rim that he changed to black. I believe they are 20x8.5 with 255/50/20's.

That must look pretty sweet!!!

It is what, about 33" by 10-1/4 wide? Nice!!!

Although, I am a big fan of 20" rims but no bigger. It just seems to add a little more beefiness to me. Just my $.02
