    I just bought a 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition. The wheels are 20 inch over size and the tires stick out past the fender. The tires are all a mish-mosh of off road type tires. I intend to replace these with normal rims and tires. My questions: Can I go to 18 inch rims and if so:
    1. Will the 18 inch ride smoother than the 20 inch?
    2. Which one will provide the better gas milage??

    I don't do off roading. I only need the 4 wheel drive for weather and pulling large boat up the ramp.
    Thanks in advance for your advice-Sam

    1. Yes
    2. Stock size, P-rated tires will provide the best mileage

    I will have my 18" wheels for sale before to long. They are aftermarket but they are 18x9 +1 I would take 600 for them when I get my new wheels set up. But I'm in Indiana not sure where you are.

    Here are my wheels 20200115_121405.jpg

    Got any pics of how far they stick out past the fenders? If the op isn't interested in them, I possibly could be.

    Not sure how much shipping would be but they are out by like 1" but I'm also running 12.5 wide tire so I dont think a 10 wide or something near stock would be to bad at all
