Default 2013 1500 20 inch tire size

Getting closer to ordering 2013 sport hemi 392 gears, full load
I want to put on after market 20 inch rims with Nitto Terra Grappler tires, what is the biggest tire that will fit with the air suspension? Could be interesting.

Im going to say same size tire as a stock truck would fit since even though you can raise the suspension up a few inches, it still will drop back down to stock or lower height in other modes. If you plan on running it in the offroad position at all times, your better off getting the truck without the air ride and just throwing a lift or level in it to fit the bigger tires. Just my 2 cents

Thanks Phildo for the info.
How many kms on your truck and have you had any issue with the 6 speed, i am thinking of getting a 2013 6 speed now or waiting for spring to get the new 8 speed.

25,000 kms on mine, no issues yet. If your willing to wait, id go for the 8 speed, would make for better mileage and smoother power band.
Also, if you are planning to install bigger tires or towing, Id opt for the 3.92 gears rather then the 3.55s. I wish I had ordered mine with 3.92s
