I'm either going to copy your staggered sizing or just go with 285/50-20s at all 4 corners. I guess it depends on how bad I wanna have the option to rotate them vs never having to.

With that kind of go juice, you will probably want to rotate...often!

I'm leaning towards the staggered. More traction plus I'd rather just replace the rear tires once a year then have to rotate them all the time.

I'm looking at a staggered set for next summer's road tires for the same reason. Let us know what you go with, tire talk never gets old when you're trying to put power to the ground.

I still like the 305/45-18 option in NT555R

I just wish Ram had some 18" wheel options like Ford & Chevy

305/50/20's look mean out back. That's a wide, meaty tire that fills the wheelwell nicely with a 2/4 drop. I put the same combo on my brothers 03 ram. 305/50's out back and 275/55's up front.

If you want to run 305/45R18's on the rear and need more traction than the 555's provide, Nitto has the NT05R in the same size but softer compound. Both are 28.9" diameter and 12" wide. I run the 555's on 9" rims with 17's up front (see signature). The combination works very well on the street and, although I haven't been on a track with them yet, when properly warmed, they hook for me (at 30 psi) during street launches when I pull the fuse for traction control and torque management. At normal psi, if not warmed, they spin hard though. http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt05r#size
