Keep the 20's?

Trying to decide if I should keep the 20's, or go with these: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...8.5&vid=009455
with some 265/70-17 Duratracs.
The 20's are pictured in my sig.

I like that the Visions have enough polished lip to define between the rim and the tire, but didn't you just get the 20's this year? Personally, when I was considering 20's I ultimately decided to keep the stock rim size because it leaves a little more room in the wheelwell and presents the appearance of having lots of suspension distance to utilize, the way an SUV should. Long story short- I would vote for the Visions.

I use my 20's during the summer months and use the 17's in the winter months for better wet weather driving and offroading.

Just do what I do and swap them over from time to time.

I'm hoping to get a Superlift within the next month, and would like a little more offset wheel. That way I can run a larger tire. The current wheels are great for stock height tires or even larger to fit for a 2" lift. The 17" wheels will have the offset I am looking for, and if I sell my 20's, then I would find some 20's with a different offset.
But, yes, I would have 2 sets of wheels/tires.

I like a little more meat on the tire when you have a lift but the wheels you have now are pretty sharp too.

Tuff call for sure, if we can help please let us know.
