Tire size and Bilstein 5100 setting Question
 
Hi guys im new to Ram moved over from Ford and Chev. Just got a new 2013 Ram 1500 Lone star quad cab 4x4 and love it. My question is i just bought a set of Bilstein 5100 and was wondering what is the best setting 2.5 or 2.8 for this truck. Also i need to know if 295 65 20 will fit after i install them. Thanks for the help

I think the settings are 2.1 and 2.8.

I'd do 2.1 and those tires will be fine

Thanks guys I installed the Bilstein 5100 truck looks much better. I was wondering if anyone has the same setup with 35 12.50 20 with the stock rims? If so do they rub, do i need spacers?

1/4" spacers are needed to run a 12.50 wide tire on stock rims. Did you use the 2.1 setting?

Yup, 1/4" spacers are needed to run the 12.5" wide tires on stock rims but you will also need your Bilsteins at 2.8" to clear the 35's.

I set them at 2.1
