    Hello,
    I just bought a 2018 Tundra Platinum. I want to keep the suspension sock no lift kits, or leaving kits, don't want any offset or anything like that. It has the 20" wheels on it now, but I want to put some Ko2's tires on it. Should I try and see if the dealer would swap out for the 18"s or as anyone put 20" Ko2s on the tundra. i seen pictures of the tundra with the 18"s but not many 20" without a lift kit. Thanks

    Welcome. 18" tires are less expensive and offer more protection for the wheels. However, 20s are gonna have less sidewall flex in turns.

    I do not like the factory 20s, but that’s just me. I would think the Dealer might be able to swap out, especially if you’re open to doing it on a used truck (since you’re changing tires anyway). If he has a chance to put brand new 20” wheels and tires on a used truck, he might do it.

    Awesome that’s what I was looking for. What size tires are those? Did you have any fit issues? Any rubbing

    I just did the same. I didn’t care for the 2018 Limited rims. Went to Texas Truck and Tire in Houston and got the 20” TSS rims with 285 BFG KO2s for very reasonable price. Was able to get some money back for the Limited rims and tires. Like the pictures above no lift and they fit fine. I know I could have gotten other rims but I like these and they are OEM here for Gulf States Toyota. Check eBay because Texas truck and tire also sell these online. Dealer wanted $465 for the TSS rim alone.

    I'm a 20" wheel fan, myself. I know the tires are more expensive, etc., but I like the way they look. I color-matched the T-Force caps to match my truck.

    Thanks, it is easy to do. Just remove the wheel caps (2 hex bolts among the fake ones), use painter's tape to mask off around the "T", spray it with primer, remove painter's tape and use a putty knife blade with a paper towel around the blade and a few drops of mineral spirits on the towel, run the flat blade over the "T" to remove primer from the non-indented surface, and let dry. Do the same with your choice of paint color. Oh, and clean the cap well with denatured alcohol before priming/painting.

    Lost track after #1.
    I've got a few pics of the 20's in my albums. I will be switching to 18's, but my reasons for doing so may differ from yours.

    I'm in the same decision process, seems like 20s are a little better handling on roads, but the larger sidewall on the 18s looks pretty good too.
