The Wrangler ones at least have some contour and design to them. The ones on that 2 door looked a bit too much like the lawn edging mod for my tastes:

37's on 15's look HUGE but 37's on 17's look normal. I have 35's on factory 20's and people call me a liar when I tell them 35's !!! They have to look and say "damn they don't look like 35's" " I can't believe that thing is not lifted"
Yup. I have 35s on 20s. They don't look that big.

I noticed the new Super Duty Lariats have a 20" rim and a 34.3" tire (a typical 35" tire) it definitely does not look huge ..... There really isn't much difference (tire hieght-wise) between the 20" Lariats and the new Tremor on 35.1" tires.

the one in my pic is 38s on 15s. thats a nice look imo, but could be better. thats why I need one tons, 44s on 15s.

And I'm sure they term it as a "special" wheel and tire package. LOL

I grew up with and like that also. Big sidewall, monster truck look, people around here have many terms for it. Nothing wrong with that !! LOL

I guess my point was more to how the larger rim size makes the tire appear to look smaller even though it is the same overall height. People make the mistake all the time by looking at sizes but like I explain to them you have to use the actual dimensions. i.e. 35 12.50 20 is not always 315/60 20's

toyo R/T 315 60 20 = 34.9 x 12.7
toyo M/T 315 60 20 = 35 x 12.6

toyo R/T 35 12.50 20 = 34.8 x 12.5
toyo M/T 35 12.50 20 = 34.8 x 12.5 load range F but 35 x 13 load range E

These might seem small but this is one tire manufacture if you change from one manufacture to another the change can be a lot more with the same size. 315 toyo to 315 Goodyear might be more then just .1, could be more like .5 now we have a rubbing problem.

As always it seems like everything went from being simple to being complicated. use dimension not size when figuring out what fits and what don't ……. just my 2 cents.

Are those Bart super trucker wheels? Also take this from a dude that has "experience", when you go 44s you will want around 150 more hp.

that truck has over 600hp and even more torque. I break half ton axles daily, any time I use her, they snap. waiting on someone to T-bone my 250 to use those axles.

Remember the leak photos are of a partially finished pre-production model so it is not entirely clear what the final product will be. When I look at them they remind me of the Bushwacker Flat Style Fender Flares, maybe this is the look Ford is going for. It would not surprise me if Ford does not already have several fender flare kits planned for their 150 accessories. With the numerous companies out there that make Jeep fender flares you can bet there will be plenty of aftermarket choices.

No doubt. Even a 83 junkyard 460 I had with "higher RPM" cam, intake, 750 DP, and
headers/exh spun up locked on both ends, 44 boggers like they weren't even there.
No crazy aftermarket alum heads, just reg gas and CUBES!!!

Built mine from an 87 250. Even when it was stock it didn’t even notice those 38s

One tons couldn't keep up with my 78bronco either so I got 2.5 tons. 4 years of abuse and over 900hp still holding on. If you can find some for a decent price get em they wont let you down.
