Does anyone know if 305/50-20 will fit my 2007 RRS HSE? If not, could someone please recommend a tire with the load index of 120+ that will fit a 19" rim?

Can I install 18" rims on my Range?

Doubt it. I've got 285/50/20 setup, and there's only a few mm gap between the tire and suspension components.

Agreed with Frisco, 285/50 is just about as wide as you can go on stock 20" rims. On a pre-2010 HSE (as long as you don't have Brembo brakes) you can fit OEM 18" wheels, many owners on this forum do just that to achieve better off-road setups and increase their tire choices - 19" is not a popular diameter and it shows, especially among all-terrain tires. 18" wheels that came off an LR3 are a perfect fit, search the forum - starting with the FAQ thread - as there is a lot of information on the subject. Welcome!

I would like something with a bit more sidewall than the stock 20's on the stormers (just tapping a curb while parking hits the wheel first....ugh). Do you believe the 285/50 will accomplish that?

What about towing, do you think the 285/50s will become a problem with the suspension if there is only a few mm gap before you apply the added pressure of towing a heavy boat?

Thanks in advance.

the 285/50 allows for a good amount of sidewall. Keep in mind you loose some(very little) handling with the bigger sidewall. I've tested out the coopers on the exit ramps and 70 and it does pretty good, so I'm happy.

You should be ok. I towed a 2400lb car on a trailer trailer,approx 3500-4000lbs total last month with no issues.
