That's awesome!! The comparison on the right side is very encouraging to make the move. Any difference in stop and go, ride? Those rims are great, were they expensive?

Re: 20" rim and tire vs 18" rim and tire

So far so good; no complaints. I played with the pressure a bit and settled on 40 psi. Ride is firm and gives me a feel for the road while improving handling. I think the wheels were $235 and tires $151. The tire has extra load rating of 111 XL which is needed for a heavier vehicle and adds a bit more stability. My choice was based on getting rubber that would improve handling while still allow me to drive pretty well in rain or even ice. Finally there were budgetary constraints such that I wanted to keep the tire/wheel package under $2k. I'll run a Maxxis Buckshot from Nov through Feb during hunting season so Hopefully Ill avoid the snow. I say that knowing it went down to 9F and snowed/iced first week of March this year.
