If your doing a 6" lift I would go with a 35x12.50r20 the 33s will look too small. As for 20x12s I have seen guys run them with a 6" lift but don't know what trimming is involved. And usually they have a -44 offset. Try to google F150 20x12 and see if you can get some info from that. If will def look good with that stance!

doing similar for my boy. he's getting my 2005 F150 in about 1.5yrs when he starts driving so I've been doing a lot of put off maintenance over the past couple years (shocks and etc) and now am beginning to get it ready for him. 2.5" level, rims/tires, KYB shocks, etc. fixing little broken things like the cracked windshield and etc. should be lookin great by the time he gets it.

Go ahead and spoil him! We love our kids, and only a parent knows what's best for them. Good luck to you.

Btw, I bought my oldest son a car, and now am trying to figure out how to pay for one for my daughter (16yr). I'm in a bind, but she's my only daughter, and some how it will happen

The Black and chrome looks great! I think she's begging for some tow mirrors though
