That truck looks SICK!!! Do you know the sizes on the wheels and tires, front and back?? They look like 390/40R17 M&H Drag Radials on 17x10 Ultra Predators on the back but the fronts don't quite look like Predators.

I weighed the fake chrome/plastic 5 spoke rims on my Dad's 2012 Ram and they weighed 76 pounds with the OEM 275/60/20's.....just an FYI for the list.

FYI: Dodge says their late-model 17" X 7" factory steel rims are 32 pounds each.

I weighed my stock aluminum 17" wheels before selling them, they were I think 17" x 8" (maybe 7" wide). They were the 5 wide spoke ones. IIRC they were ~25lbs.

Seriously though, I only remove the spare 90% of the time, sometimes the tonneau, only once did the tailgate.
My biggest change is going to smaller/lighter 17" alloy wheel and shorter DR's for a 5 fold Huge advantage.
(tire is a 27.5" tall 30lb DOT legal M/T ET Street, wheel is 30lb 17"x9" Aluminum Moto Metal 951)

Traction
Lighter Weight
Lower Rolling Mass
Effective Gear Ratio Reduction
Lower Ride Height for improved Aerodynamics

My 4x4 Ram with 17" DR's (all 4 corners)
is a half second faster than running stock 20's
30 pounds lighter per corner = 120 lbs less
effective gear reduction drops from 3.55:1 to 4.30:1
ride height drops by almost 3"and looks more like lowered 2WD Ram



I've only tried without the tailgate/tonneau once and it didn't make much difference, maybe a 10th, not worth the trouble compared to a tire swap

That's cool but you really only need to delete Heavy Metal files...

I think the information in this list is excellent but may get cluttered in all the discussion. Should we consolidate it to the original post to make it easier to find the info as opposed to scrolling through multiple posts? Thoughts?
