As a part of the deal on my truck, I had them swap out the 17's for a set of 20's on a Laramie... No problems here! Is your's a 4x4?

I would think they work, unless maybe if one is 2wd and one is 4wd but even that I would think wouyld work, how wide of tires are you running?

I'm the other member he's trading with. Mine are 20x8 wheels, his are 17x7. Both with stock tires. Both are 2012 Crew Cab, 4x4. Almost identical trucks. The only difference is mine has Bilstein 5100's set to 2.8. I could understand if the 17' didn't fit mine for some reason, but they fit fine. Putting the 20's on his, they said the wheel itself hit the control arm, not the tire. Doesn't make any sense to me.

Another thought, my truck was bought new from dealer with aftermarket rims/tires, but on factory trucks there is clips on the hub around the lugs, are they present on both trucks?? Maybe that is how dodge/why dodge uses those clips, basically like a small spacer? Also how far was the 20s on your truck from mounting when they hit?? Also what tires are on the 20s??

I had the clips on my Ram too
One of the guys at Discount Tire used to work at the assembly line
He said that when the vehicle is going down the line, the rims & tires go on at one station & when it gets to the next station in line, the lugs go on, those clips hold the rim on until the lug nuts go on. When the rims are changed for another type, they cut off the clips & toss them in the trash.

If the tires are not over 12 1/2" wide, they should not be touching, unless the offset on the rim is incorrect
