Default 20" Wheels.. What size tires?

Ive decided on 20" XD spys for my Ram. Im gonna lift it 6 inches and im not sure whether to go with 35's or 33's. Im not sure if the 35 will fit and i thought the 33 might showoff the wheel a little more..? Any suggestions or experiences on which tires to choose? I think im leaning towards the nitto trail grappler.

With a 6" lift 33's will look silly on there. 35's are a minimum IMO, you could even go 37 if you wanted.

Spot on!

You'll only just get away with 35" looking right with a 6" lift. However, 37" will look amazing!

If you opt for 33" it'll look like you ran out of money right after you purchased the rims.

Good luck.

I think the trail grappler is the way to go. If I remember what I've read before the toyo wears a little quicker and is louder. But I'm sure both would be good choices.

The word around the forums is to use this as a guideline

Leveling Kit - 33 inch tires
4 inch Lift - 35 inch tires
6 inch Lift - 37 inch tires


I've seen pictures of all three setups and they are the most visually appealing combinations.

Myself i'm going with the 4 inch lift and 35's, can't wait to get it in.

As for tires, I'm going with the Toyo MT's. I've heard the opposite of the poster above me regarding wear and noise, but I believe both tires are manufactured by the same company. The are very comparable IMO. Toyo does have a rebate on right now as well.

Good luck, it's tough deciding all this. Ask lots of questions and post pictures when you're done!
