I am just starting to look into this now, I am going to go with the Bilstein's and either just level it or a small lift. I will be driving around 17K a year on the road, what 34-35" tires do you feel will work, my driving will be mostly on the road, and I live in New England where we get a good amount of snow/rain.

The Factory tires IMO are terrible, they hydroplane in even a little puddle and in the snow they are not good either, I was hoping to upgrade my ride with new tires and at the same time move up to 34-35", is that possible?

Thank you!!!!!!

Default Lift & Tires For 2010 TRX4

Hey All,
I just recently picked up a new (to me) 2010 1500 TRX4 and was wondering what you would recommend for a mild lift and tire size on it? I just want it's stance to look a little better. Right now it has the stock 275/70R17's on it. Thanks in advance for any advise.

Both of you need to check out the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire Sizing linked in my signature below. It will answer all your questions about leveling and what tire size you can run with them.

Carnut12, I would recommend an AT tire for you. Toyo AT2's are probably my favorite but there's also Nitto Terra Grapplers and a number of other brands out there... you just have to do some research. This forum is a great place to start.

Ok, so I've been trying to figure out how to determine the best/easiest rim specs to buy for my 1500 Outdoorsman (not levelled).
I do not want to level the front (can't afford it). I want to run 17" rims. I will probably be keeping the stock Wrangler Silent Armor 265/70R17 tires.
So I know the stock 17" rims are 17x8" +25offset 5bolt 5.5 (139mm) with 77.8mm bore.

I'm looking at the following page (as a reference, probably won't be the rims I get):
http://www.1010tires.com/Wheels/Ion+...inted/Gunmetal

The offset is 10mm and the bore size is 108mm. My truck has OEM fender flares, so I am assuming the 10mm will not make the tires stick out too far? And the bore size difference, does that mean I will need something in the rim to take up the difference in size?

And if I chose a different setup - one with a 0mm offset with a 9" rim, what are the consequences? Will the stock tire fit on a 9" rim?
http://www.1010tires.com/Wheels/Ion+...Black+Beadlock

And finally, there is a decent looking rim that is 9", 20mm offset, 77.8mm bore... Is that my absolute best bet?
http://www.1010tires.com/Wheels/Ruff...ed/Matte+Black

My brain is swimming by looking at all the different rim sizes and specs... LMAO

Having a +10mm offset on an 8" wide rim will push your rim 15mm(9/16") further out than stock so they will still be tucked under your flare. Because the bore is 108mm you will want hubcentric adapter rings to fill in the gap. Not a big deal....

A 9" wide rim with a 0 offset will stick out even further, that's the only consequence. The stock tires will fit on the 9" rim no problem.

A 9" rim with a +20 offset is essentially the same spec as the 20" rims that come stock on Rams. So it will look very close to stock as far as stance goes. It's not necessarily best. I would go with whatever you think looks better. You can make any of those options work.

Ok, so a +offset moves the outside of the rim out... and the more -offset moves the outside of the rim in.
So if the stock rim is 8" +25mm offset and my aftermarket rim is 9" +0mm offset, wouldn't that actually equal out at the fender side? 25mm is 1", isn't it? Which means that extra 1" of rim width moves the inside edge of the rim 1" closer to the control arms/etc? (Sorry if I am completely n00bing this up, but I don't want to make a mistake when/if I order rims.)

Nope, you have it backwards. Checkout it the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire sizing linked in my signature. It has a section explaining how the offsets and backspacing works and their effect on the stance of the truck.

Ok, I got it now... Just takes a brick over the head for it to sink in.
I think I found the package I'm going to get... Eventually.

Thumbs up Lift/tires for '08 ram

I've got an 08 Ram and I'd like to get 36'' tires. Any advice? Would a leveling kit do the job or do I need suspension? Also less it costs the better! Thanks
