You will most likely need a level, 2.5" preferably

the 1/4" spacers are good, since you are running stock 20" wheels

Awesome!!! The Bilsteins have a max lift of 2.75" so when they settle Im figuring ~2.6" which Im thinking will fit. I just didn't want to spend $1k on tires and them not fit...then im stuck with em! Thanks again fellow Virginian!

Need help!!!
I have a 2010 Ram1500 4X4 with factory chrome clad wheel set up (Wrangler tires / 20" X "9" rims that are +19mm). 2" leveling kit. Going to a SRT10 replica wheel (22" X 10" with +25.4mm offset) and Nitto Terra Grappler's 285/55R22, I know they rub and need to know what size of adaptor / spacer I need to clear. Was told a 1" adaptor would work, want to be sure before I purchase. Any help is appreciated!

Hey all. So, I have OEM 17" rims on my 2014. They are wrapped with Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor rubber. There is a Mountain & Snowflake symbol on the tire. So I am going to assume that these are Winter tires.

My questions are these:
Should I ONLY run these in the Winter? IE will they prematurely wear if I run them in the Summer? Or are they tough enough to run year round? (If that is even possible)

And if I do not run them in the Summer, I need a decent replacement tire. I will not be doing much, if any, off road running... So decent pavement performance would be paramount... However, I'd love it if it LOOKED like I did offroading, so an aggressive look from side on would be really cool.
And I see tires listed as P and LT... Should I only be looking at LT tires?

And if I look for new rims as well, are there specific stats or types of rims I should be looking at? Machined, painted, alloy, forged, etc etc?
I just got an email from TireRack who suggested these rims:
https://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Whee...dClar=Crew+Cab

(I really an a n00b when it comes to this stuff, unfortunately... and I am looking to you experts for some guidance! LOL)

Shadow,

Here is a link to a review on your tires:

http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/wh...t-armor-tires/

No where does it state they are solely for the purpose of winter driving, so you should be good to go. The reviewers were pretty pleased with their wear after 10,000 miles.

Thanks to the OP for the original post, it Is great to have everything easy to find when you are new to a truck/car. Unfortunately it didnt include 4th gens so i read for 15 pages and searched to no avail. I have an srt8 challenger that I usual mod now its time for the truck I bought over the summer. I knew nothing about it until hours and hours of reading on here. So I staring my mods, Anyways....

Help, I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 crew cab shortbed
Just got the Performance accessories 5" lift in. (PLS600 3" bodylift with 2" levelling)
I plan to keep running the 20" Chrome clad factory wheels but need to know what size tires I can run.
I do not want to use any spacers
I want something that is guaranteed not to rub
Prefer a more common size that is not a fortune
I do not plan to do fender flares either so they can't stick out much if any.
no intentions of ever offroading

If it is actually cheaper to go with new aftermarket 18's and new tires instead of just 20" tires let me know as well.

Actual tire recommendations would be great.
I am actually going for looks and love aggressive tread
(on my Zr2 I have some Nitto Dune Grapplers with the flames)

I appreciate any help
