JeffWard is on a distinguished road
Default 20" factory wheels on SXT?

I have a 2005 Ram 1500 SXT (2WD). It has 17" rims.
Can I direct swap on 20" factory rims/tires (2005-newer)?

I know there will be a speedo offset for OSD.

Issues?

Anyone have a 20" factory set they wanna part with?

Newbie,
JeffWard

you can fix your speedo with a handheld programmer. if you don't actually change the overall height of the wheel/tire combo your speedo won't change.

here is website to help. plug in your current tire size and then the size you want and it spits out the difference. you can play around with the sizing to find a similar height combo.
