I want to get fuel offroad boost rims and i want to run 35's for now and once i get a lift i might run 37's will 17 inch rim be to small for a 37 and will the difference in sidewall height from a 17 to a 20 inch affect my ride quality and drive ability?

20's will give you a more rigid ride depending on tire selection. Pretty much all tire sizes are available in 17 inch rims; its a very popular size.

In my opinion 17's with 37 inch tires would look a million times better than 20's with 37 inch tires. The "big wheel and little rubber" is stupid looking if you ask me.

37's on 20's will ride like a log wagon... 37's on 17's will give you more sidewall flex and better ride...

my biggest regret is going 20's. Dodges are kidney killers to begin with. Add a set of 20's and E range A/T tires and you will start to hate your truck. Im in the market for 17's now.

I have 17's and 37"s on mine. Rides ok, better than my buddy's F350 w/ 20's.
That could be the oval lookin thing in the grill though. lol. Not to mention the bigger the wheel the more pricey the tires get.

How old are you? That may make a difference... if you ask my dad (50 years old) he'll tell you 17s for the ride. If you ask me (26), I'll tell you 20s for the look! ;)

Honestly though my Load E MTs are 35x12.50 R20 and my ride actually got better from the Cooper 275x60 R17 or whatever stock size is. I swear I felt every damn crack on the road. But my MTs are at 50psi too so that probably helps with ride some.

Also, I'm partial to a bigger rim because I see so many rusted out chevys running 20% tread, 3rd hand, 38" tires on a 15" rim running around leaving chunks of their fenders on the road.
