Question wheel/tire Opinions and advice

Im looking for any advice on wheel size and opinions. I have no intention as of right now to lower this burb. Just want to fill space without rubbing on the fenders. I am considering a 20x10 in the rear and 20x8.5 in the front. The price on 275/60/r20 is really good for goodyear wranglers.
Is this size too big? will this size look good? what size should I use?
Should I consider 18 in wheels/tires?
I am looking at Ridler rims

Those are 33" tall tires. And they may not fit on the front of a two wheel drive without some kind of modification.

If you run a a 15 x 8 inch wide rim with P255 /70R15 tires on all 4 corners it fills up the wheel wells nice and look really good on a Burb or pickup.

Re: wheel/tire Opinions and advice

I am running 255/70-15 on the rear and 225/70-15 on the front. There is still a lot of space. I am searching for a torq thrust type 18" wheel for a 6 lug but am striking out...
