What wheel size is best for off-road trucks?

For off-road performance, we prefer to stick to the rule of thumb of running a wheel diameter no bigger than half the tire height.

Are 18 or 20 inch wheels better for off-road?

Are 18 wheels good for off-road?

Can I put 18-inch tires on 20 inch rims?
