Smile 24" rims vs. 22" or 23" rims

Hello All,
I have a 06 F150 SuperCrew XLT and I want to put rims on it but don't know the dangers or problems associated with 22", 23", 24" rims? Can anybody tell me if they heard of anybody tuning their engine to equate for the larger rims? Any help will be appreciated and consider this thanks in advance.

There is nothing to "tune an engine" for different rim sizes. If you go to a tore with a different height, you can have your computer reprogramed so the speedometer/odometer is correct.
The negatives to larger wheels are they are heavier, which will slightly hurt acceleration and braking. If you go to a really low profile tire with a very short sidewall, your ride quality will suffer.

I have 22's on mine with some 285/40/22's on them. Ride quality did suffer (low profile), but I love the look. Braking power did change, but not a ton. I have put some mods on the truck since putting the new rims and tires on so as far as acceleration, I'm not 100% sure. The difference between the stock 265/60/18's and my tires now are minimal. Overall there is little difference but most of the specs come close. (stock at 60mph = 59.1mph on my new tires) Here is a calculator you can use for rims and tires http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCal...?action=submit

In my opinion, my Expy rides much better with the 305/45-22's. The ride is slightly firmer and the handling is much better. The ride with the oem 265/70-17's was too mushy for my taste.

I sell tires and repairs for a living. You'll get much better steering feel and control. It will seem a little harsh feeling at first, but most people gladly trade that off for the look and control.
Oh also, wide tires stink in snow & rain, and low profile tires/wheels are more easily broken or damaged in potholes. Many who do the 24's tend to want more brakes later to overcome the greater weight and traction of the big wheel set.
In the Northeast we take off the low profile for snow season and put on our ski season tires. Or if you can find a tire that's you size and has good winter behavior, leave em on. Just watch out for the holes and be prepared for road salt and sand which can etch the wheels' finish over time.
Do it, you'll be really happy, it's the best instant change you can make to a vehicle.

offset and width of 24" rims

Does anyone know the ideal offset and width for 24" rims on a 2006 F-150 lariat crew 4x4? It has been lowered 2" in front and 3" in rear. I am trying to buy some 24's from ebay but I dont want to buy some and find out later that they rub when turning or hitting bumps.

You would probably get more info if you didn't post your question in a thread almost 3 years old.
But to answer your question, you want 6.5 to 7 inches of backspacing.

Sorry, I am new to this forum. What exactly do you mean by backspacing? I only know what the offset of the rims is by the ad I have been looking at. I dont have access to measure anything on them.
