Smallest rims on an 08 250

What are the smallest rims I can run. I am in the market for 2 new tires and the price in Canda is crazy! If I replace my 35's on 20's I am looking at over $ 1300.00 for 2. I figure I can get replacment rims (smaller) and bring my tire (rim) size down but maintain the 35inch overall and save a bunch. Tires now seem to be consumables such as FUEL with the new tunes. What is stock that will cler my rotors etc?
