Or... the engineers at dodge could be tasked with considering COMMON tire upgrades into their design or wheel wells, suspension and stock wheels. For these trucks..ideally... 305/55/20 , 325/50/20, 33x12.5 would on stock truckst with no issues. Almost stupid that they do not given how close it is.

I was a the tire shop where one of the guys had a Turndra running 305/55/20 with no rubbing on a 20x9 rim with +30 offset. You could tell that all those sizes would fit that truck on just about any wheel. Nothing in the suspension was in the way of tires.

I'm going to submit a write up in my new customer survey to Dodge with this point. I see it as a design oversight. That and the fact that my truck is doing 11 mpg at 5k.
