Default New Wheels and tires

Ok guys, I am getting new wheels and tires put on tomorrow. 18" KMC Thumps and 33" Toyo open country m/t's. The stock tires are 275/60r20, I am new to the customizing of trucks so I am not sure what the tire height is of the stock. If my new tires are smaller, will it hurt my gears? I would hate to have a new truck and be tearing the gears up.

So, here are my questions:

Will my gears be impacted by the 33" wheels?
If they are smaller, will my speedometer be off?
Will the tire pressure reading still be on my dash?

Thanks for the help folks, I will post pictures when I get her back on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Part of the deal when I bought the truck was that the dealer gets those wheels and tires back and I get the new wheels and tires of my choosing. As well as some other add ons.

33" is the stock tire size for the Sport trim Rams. So as far as size goes you haven't changed. The Toyo's will definitely be heavier than stock so you'll notice that a bit but it shouldn't be too bad at all. Shouldn't hurt your gears in any way.

If you do not transfer the TPMS (tire pressure) into the new wheels then no the tire pressure will not be on the dash.
