It's far cheaper to add those things as the vehicle moves down the line and downgrading the rims saves a fair amount of money too. However, to buy the 20" rims you'd be looking at probably two grand (at least) by the time you put tires and TPMS sensors on them.
So you basically just pick; it's probably a wash by the time you'd add the plates, hooks, and get a set of 18" rims (so you don't bend up the 20" ones on a trail).
I do wish they'd made the 18" rims look like just downsized version of the 20" ones.
The 20's are over $400 apiece at the parts counter, then add tires and mounting/balancing. Well over 2K in the end, the skids as stated are around $500 plus install. I installed them myself so no charge for that. Depends on what your going to do as to which order is the cheapest route for you.
