Default SIZE matters!

Whats up guys? I recently got a 2008 RAM4x4 4door bighorn and im looking to upgrade the tires. I have already installed a 2.5 inch front leveling lift kit from hell bent steel and I just bought some Chrome 20 inch helo he835 rims. I can NOT decide on what size tires to get (nitto terra grapplers)... I have been racking my brain for a week or two now. I have three sizes im looking at. Can i get some opinions? maybe some pics?

305/55/20 33.3 x 12.50

295/60/20 34.4 x 11 or so

275/60/20 (stock size) 32.9x11 or so... also the cheapest by a few hundred bucks.

Also is their a "forsale" section on this forum... Ill be selling my factory OEM 20 inch silver rims.

My advise, go big or go home. Get something that will fill out the wheel wells, you dont want it to look like you're driving on pizza cutters!

And to sell your wheels, here is the buy sell trade forum http://ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=44

If you can afford it I think I would go with the 295/60. That seems like a good balance between a wider tire and a taller tire and I think it would look good with the extra wheel well space created by the leveling kit.

I went with nitto terras 305/55/20. They look great but are scary close to the A-arms on the front with my aftermarket rims. So close that you can barely slip a piece of paper between the two.
