Default 2010 ram tires

Hey everyone.. I have a 2010 ram with the stock 20x9 rims and when I get new tires I want to get something that looks a little more aggressive but doesn't affect mpg or power or rub..mainly Cause any problems and I have a 2" leveling kit

There are lot's of good all-terrain tires out there that look pretty aggressive but still have good highway qualities. My two favs are the Cooper Zeon LTZ and the Nitto Terra Grappler. If you are wanting bigger than the stock size you could go with a 275/65/20 which is one inch taller but the same width. You could also run a 285/60 or 285/65 but tire selection in those sizes is very limited and expensive. Anything wider than the 285 will likely cause rubbing issues unless you are prepared to run 1/4" wheel spacers.

The weight difference between the stock tires and any of the above sizes will be minimal so I don't think you will see any real difference in MPG and power. It's when you get into mud tires that you would probably notice these things. Some mud tires can weigh 1.5X as much as a similarly sized all-terrain tire.

I agree, I'm currently running the Cooper Zeon LTZ in a 275/60R20 and they are great tires. I will be doing wheels and tires in the spring and gonna go with the same ones just in a 275/65R20 to go with my leveling kit.
