Anybody have pics of their Ram 1500 4x4 with 285-75-17 tires, either stock hieght or leveled? May or may not level it.

as far as speedometer changed it would be minimal if any, MPG changes probably close to 0 if anything at all, and as far as rubbing goes i doubt very much you would have any issues the stock tire should be close to a 275x65 so your only bumping up really one size if my math is correct your not even going to be 1" taller or wider so you should be ok, and many member here are running 285x75's with their leveled truck, and there are a few running with stock height also, to be 100% sure i would call up your local tire guy and ask, however based off of what i know a 275x70x17 was an original equipment option so you could likely go a little bigger to 285x75r17 and have no issue if anything very minor trimming might be required hopefully one of the member here running this tire size will chime in with more info for you.

hope this has helped you a bit

Thanks

Thanks for the reposnses. Great looking truck 09nitetrain!

One more ? I seem to have read mixed responses, and could be make/model specific, about torsion keys being a waste and that cranking the bolt is all you need to do. I know the keys are thicker/larger but your still putting the same pressure on everything right? Do the keys actually make for a factory like ride? Ive also read some say that cranking the bolts makes for a stiffer ride and some say there was no difference, which is it.. for my 04 anyway? Im looking to do this but dont want a stiff ride up front, so if the keys actually serve the purpose the maintain the factory ride then Ill go with that.

Thanks

mine are cranked about two and a half inches. Its a little stiffer goin over bumps but ridin around town or on the highway I notice no difference at all. and a 285-75 is going to be very hard to find. 285-70-17 is what youll want and they will fit just fine leveled or not might be a little close to the upper ball joints but theyll clear ...I work for a tire shop lol

that's good to know they will clear regardless cause I stupidly assumed they would. So would torsion keys relieve the stiffness at all? Also does leveling, keys or no keys, cause premature wear? I want to level my truck but not at the expense of doing damage. Thanks.
