Anyone running 20ís on a 4x4?

Hey!
I am new to the forum and have a 2019 4x4 on order that should be in within the next month. The first thing I am looking to do is change out the wheels - and was wondering if anyone has any insight? I have seen this sprinter floating around on the web - and was told hes running 275/65/r20ís. I like the stance and the look as well. Any pics and details of any sprinter is appreciated!
Thanks!
Jason

If it was me I’d run 17’s or 18’s max. Your not gonna be able to air down enough with 20’s not enough side wall. If you do air down 20’s you’ll have a greater chance damaging both the rim & tire in certain circumstances.

Not sure where you plan on travelling but I would think getting a replacement tire/wheel for this size is going to be more challenging than 16/17/18's. This could result in significant trip interruption even if you have a spare.

Why use 20" rims if you invested in a x4x? Defeats the purpose, and the ride quality will suffer, as well as off road performance, and you'll have increased risk. Bling don't get you out of a jam.

Im not doing any off roading - I own a trucking company and using this sprinter as a service truck more or less.... only thing 4x4 will be used for is getting in and out of parking lots that are snow covered in Michigan.
