Unless you're going to get really radical - with the same steering results - you don't want 6" front wheels. Make it 7" and maybe 8" on the back. That's what my Road Runner has on it. Of course, you could go up to 9" but you'll have to run 12" (or P275, P295) tires.

Any good wheel shop will have them. For older vehicles you're looking for a 0 offset or maybe a -30 or so for a 9" ...

Sure you can put 20's on it if that's what you want. I thought we were talking about rim width not diameter. 20" rims should come in a variety of widths - just try to stay within an inch or so (in width) between the front and back. Personally, I've always thought trucks looked best with all four tires/rims the same size. As far as the total height of the tire/rim combo you really need to talk to some truck guys about that - I have no idea how tall they run those things ...
