will 22" srt style rims go on my longhorn
 
Hello guys I'm planning on buying 22" srt 10 chrome style rims for my 2012 ram 1500 longhorn. Just wondering can I just slap these rims on? Or will they not fit and rub etc size is 139.7 X 5 285/45/22

Up to a 34" tire can be put on without rubbing or lifts, etc.

My tires are 275/65/20 - yours will be about 32"

Are you lowered or plan on lowering? If not, the 285/45's might look a little small on there, they're about an inch shorter than stock. As far as the wheels, they'll fit no problem. Depending on your tire choice, the tire may or may not rub slightly on the sway bar @ full steering lock. Mine do a little but no biggie, as I don't turn my wheel to full lock anyway.

SRT's are a different animal.

You think they will look small.

Without a drop? IMO, yes. I don't like a large gap between the tire and fender, and our RAM's already have quite a bit. If you're not going to lower it, I would go with a 305/45. That's what is on my truck in my sig pic, and I'm dropped a little over 2" front/4" rear. I'll try to post a pic of it with them on before the drop so you can get an idea of what it would look like. Like I said, they have a slight rub on the sway bar at full lock, but I never turn that far anyway, it's not good for the steering system.

i think the 4G might sit a touch higher than the 3G, but yeah, that's basically how it would look. i personally don't like it, looks like a 4WD missing it's tires, lol. But, to each their own. Here is mine, stock height, w/ the 305/45's (same diameter as stock, BTW) just for reference:http://i1323.photobucket.com/albums/...ps199cba19.jpg
That all being said, if that's the tires you get with the wheels, run 'em. Would look great with a drop, wink wink.
