Okay, I have a 2004 dodge ram quadcab 4x4 5.7 l hemi SLT. I just bought it and it has Core Racing rims (17") with off-road style wheels.

Looking to pick up a set of take offs and there are more 20" rims than 17's available.

From what I understand, the 20's should bolt on (5bolt) with no issues and the dealer can recalibrations the speedo.

Am I correct?

If they're stock wheels from a Ram you won't have any issues. The speedo only needs to be calibrated if the overall tire size changes.

Cranking the torsion bars is leveling... Once they're cranked that's all you've got, you can't add more height unless you go to a full on lift kit.

I would recommend going with an aftermarket rim rather than a spacer. It will be a much better set up. The offset you need to be flush with your flares will depend on the wheel width and tire size you go with. You will be able to run up to a 35x12.5 tire.

So with a new wheel, 20x9 with a zero offset and a bilstein set at 2.1 295x65 trail grappler, would there be any rubbing? Would i need to goto 2.8 or add a spacer?

Nope, you shouldn't have any issues with that set up at all.

Thanks for the response! Getting ready to pull the trigger on the set up, gotta love tax season! Anyone else rocking any LRG 104's? Originally wanted the BMF SOTA's but they're $400 more for a set!
