Tow dolly question re size of tires

For quite a while now, I've been researching tow dollies for use with my wife's Lincoln MKX and have a question for which I simply cannot find an answer anywhere online. Nearly all tow dollies state that the included basket straps are specifically for 13 to 16 inch tires, while the tires on my wife's car are 20 inches. Surely it shouldn't be a problem to get larger basket straps or you'd never see a tow dolly being used with large pickups or SUV's.

I'd sure like to hear some "real world" opinions from someone here, though, before making a decision.

I towed a Buick Verano with 18" wheels on a Mastertow dolly and had to get bigger basket straps. I found a vendor on Ebay who built straps to order and seemed knowledgeable about what I would need for the larger wheel size. I don't remember his name (it was several years ago).
