Default New and Looking for Opinions

New to this forum, so greetings to all.

I have a 2011 1500 crew cab (Black / Lonestar / 20 in) and I am in the process of getting new wheels (20 inch / black). I would like some feedback on ideal tire size, as well as lifts or leveling. My preference is an all terrain tire (Nitto Terra Grapler) and not too much lift. Just enough to accomodate the tire/wheel combo.

Any of your thoughts or feedback is very much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum! Alot of great people on here. I'm sure you'll get a lot of responses on tires. One thing you should look into is a Catch Can. It goes in between the pcv valve and your intake, and it catches all the oily crap and separates it so not to go down your intake. Billet technology makes one, so does moroso and a few others that I forget the name of. Good investment for the life of your motor.

Well if your like me with a 2wd Ram the daystar lift is cheap and worked out good for me. if your lucky and have 4 wd you can get the nice bilstein adj 5100's to level it. I amrynning black Dick cepek torque wheels with 305/55/20 cooper zeon ltz's. like my wheels but I like the Fuel wheels better for me it came down to a several hundred dollar difference. some nice XD wheels as well.

Check out the rough country lift level combo. It is a 2.5 level and a 1.5 body lift all in one for 250 and simple enough that you can self install
