    Just got this 93 pickup for $150.00...Needs head gasket. I also got these 20inch rims for $60! The tires are shot and I need new ones. My question is, The rim is 20x8.5 and it has 235/35/20 tires. I need some with more meat. I am practically riding on the rims, the tires have been stretched out. What tire size will fill up the wheel well without rubbing? Is it 245/45/20, 255/45/20 or ??? THe truck will not be lowered it is stock height. Can someone give me some pointers? THX.

    If you want more meat... go with a wider tire patch. The 35 series tire is gonna keep you from rubbing. If you insist on having more cushion you could go up into a 40 series and stay with the same aspect ratio. Goodle your rim and different tire sizes to see if you like the look. A tire size calculator will also give you ideas to how much room tires will take up...

    i think you will be ok with a 245/45/20. Thats about an inch taller tire than the recommended tire height. Recommended tire height is a little over 27" but a 245/45/20 will put you at 28.68" in height. If you want to play it safe. I would go with a 235/40/20. That makes your tire 9.25" wide; and a 3.7" sidewall putting you at 27.4" overall height which is right at spec.
