Sorry, bikini babes notwithstanding, dubs and the dub look is not my cup of tea. While I respect those who are in to that, to me dubs=slow. They are heavy, increase rotational mass and the much lower aspect ratio of the tires means absolutely no fun off-road and means bent rims anytime you encounter potholes, railroads, etc.

I went through that phase with an european sports sedan and spent a fortune getting rims either replaced or getting them straightened.

Have fun, enjoy the bikinis, but count me out.

Me too. A good example of what I think of when I think SUV is the new Xterra comercial. Bling Bling = X. I have larger rims because it was the only size I could get that would get me into 305 Terra Grapplers. Love the Bikinis but would rather have a lift kit.

Amen to the lift kit. I hope someone comes out with one. My Armada sometimes is used to tow my "toy" a '77 Jeep CJ5. It has a 4 inch spring lift and 2 inch body lift, clearing 36 inch SuperSwampers on - get ready - 15 inch rims. Lots of side wall. Very soft, cushioned ride. I keep the tires at 8-10 lbs pressure! It will go anywhere.

I'd love a 4 inch lift for our trucks. That would clear 35's which is tall enough for a daily driver. I'd look for 15 or 16 inch rims.

Nice wheels! I notice you have low profile tires, how is the ride? I have 285/50R 20's and lately I have been getting a rough ride. Any suggestions?

Since it hasn't always been rough, I'd think that you should check out your shocks. With 20" and larger, you're adding unsprung weight to each corner. The unsprung weight can prematurely wear out your shocks. If the shocks aren't damping enough, you'll feel it through the steering wheel and the whole suspension.

If you've always felt it to be rough, then I'd think it's just a bigger wheel and 50 series tires with not enough rubber sidewall.

Not sure if you can test your shocks, maybe just replace them to a stiffer aftermarket one.
