What wheels and gears should I go with?
 
I have an '02 Ram 1500 sport with the 20" rims. I am getting rid of the 20s and putting on some 17s. I'm stuck with which ones to go with? Either the moto metal 909s or kmc xd series addicts with some 315/70/17 mickey thompson baja mtx (or mxt, can't remember!) I would have loved to go with the kmc xd series "revolvers", but they don't come in a five bolt pattern. Truck is black and i traded bumpers and a grill with a buddy, so now i have some chrome on there too. I'll try and get some pics up, but dial up is brutally slow.
Another thing is what gear ratio do i need to put these tires on there?

thanks

4.56 gears and the addict wheels

Thanks, I don't like the look of the addicts as much as the revolvers and i'm torn about the "skulls" on the 909s. I kind of like the skulls now, but might hate them in the future. Thanks for the advice though!

no prob.
wheels are just personal preference, but i would definatly suggest the 4.56 gears with those big tires your putting on there

Thanks again! Just wondering about those rims i ordered? They're the Moto metal 909's and i like the way they look, but how long before i get sick of the "skulls" and then how my gonna sell 'em! haah

No way! You got those? I think those wheels are sick (in a good way)!

315 might rub on the front say bar FYI. you might need spacers or the right offset

Yeah i got the 35 inch MIckey's and the 17" "punishers", and must say "WTF was i thinkin!? The offset works on those rims, actually the tires stick out attrociously! (spelling...whatever haha) I'm getting addicts instead because the offset is -12 on the skulls and the addicts is +18, so should be better.

you'll need 4.5'' of backspacing on those... to fit 315
