    Purchased a 2020 TH about a month ago and I'm trying to beef up the looks of it and I'm finding there's not a lot you can do to increasing tire size. Curious to the pros and cons of buying new 16" rims and getting new tires to replace my 17" stock rims and tires. I'm planning to either do the ATP 4" lift kit or the AVID 2.5" and switching to the Eibach springs. I'm thinking switching to the 16" rims will give the "appearance" of bigger tires. I would appreciate any and all feedback. Thank you in advance and thank you for the powers that be that put this forum together.

    I switched to 16in rims do to more tire choices and more rubber/bigger tires.

    I would do a little bit more research, but I believe that 16 inch wheels rub on the brake calipers.
    I know/read that people will take a grinder to the caliper to get the 16 inch wheels fit, but I just can't see myself grinding on a brake caliper.

    225/65R17 and a 1 inch wheel spacer will give you a more aggressive look that will fit without issues.

    I went with the AVID 2.5 and the ATP springs (I wanted the red springs) without complaints or issues (but I also made a few modifications).
