So I have recently purchased a 2011 F-150 Limited with the 6.2L motor. Got a good deal on it but was kind of disappointed that the previous owner swapped out the stock 22s for aftermarket 22s. I'm putting on a 2" strut leveling kit on the front and am now trying to make the wheel decision. Have been trying to imagine the 22s that are on the truck now wrapped in a 33x12.50 Toyo M/T, but the rim as you can see has very little back spacing. Or do I spend the extra 600-700 bucks and get a set of 20x10 Fuel Nuts with a -12 or -24 offset also wrapped in the Toyos. Am looking forward to yalls insights and opinions. Thanks!

There's always the option to use a wheel spacer....but if you intend on getting a 33" A/T tire, I think going to a 20" rim would give a bit more sidewall for a more aggressive truck look....maybe even an 18" rim if it was mine.

First off, Welcome!

Nice looking truck for sure. If it were mine though since you're considering total replacement, I'd opt for smaller diameter wheels 'cus 22" seems impractical for trucks unless boulevard cruiser style is one's preference. To me, such wheels with resulting harsher ride due to low profile sidewall tires are a dichotomy to Ford's hi-end luxury Platinum trim level.

I personally prefer OEM factory parts. Depending on budget, you should be able to find a primo set of OEM take-off wheels on local Craigslist. If none advertised, place a WTB in CL for specific wheels of interest. I bought (and sold) 2014 Raptor wheels that way as well as OEM Raptor side boards and full fresh OEM Raptor catback exhaust (last item on WTB ad).

If you want big mudders, you don't want 22" rims dude......
I definitely do not think rim spacers are a good idea either personally.

Look at the Raptor and Toyota Rock Warrior tundra's.
Smaller rims and more meat on the rubber for absorbing offroad feedback.

Agreed......
The platinum is a boulevard bling bling, Escalade crowd competitor, so to speak.

High end sub-urban luxo-barge basically. Which, there is nothing wrong with BTW.
Rims that big weren't designed for off-roading.

Then again most guys putting on goober mania baby monster truck tires aren't
doing anything except blingin their rides as faux-off roaders also.

He has a Limited, it's written on the truck bed! But I agree get 20" or 18" wheels and tires of your choice, as the 22" are too much bling, so to speak, IMO. Unless you had the original '11 Ford Limited wheels, which I think look pretty good.

Bottom line it's your decision and lots of dollars, so choose wisely.

Those would look fine with larger mud tires. But only just. For a street truck.

If you plan to off-road then I'd def go smaller in the rim size.

Keep those put tires and get new offroad rims and tires, you'll be set.

My bad - I called it "Platinum" first.
Nonetheless, I stand by opinion that 22" wheels are primarily "boulevard cruiser" oriented...
