Default Need help for the perfect setup

In my garage to be instLled I have bilstein 5100s that will be maxed on my 2012 ram sport as well as RCX 1.25 BL. I will be running the stock chrome clad 20s with 1/4" RCX spacers untill I buy proper rims. My future plans will be a 4" RCX suspension lift, along with pocket style fender flares. I drive 90% hwy and put about 20k miles on a year.
Now on to my question about the tires. I was originally going to get the 35x12.5/20 Federal Courigia m/t tire because of the price. I am unsure now on that tire based on the varying reviews. I don't really need the m/t tire but like the look. I am now looking at the Nitto Terra's and Trails. Since the Terra doesn't have the 35 size I am looking at either the 295 or 325. My biggest question is will the Terra 325/60/20 fit with my setup until I do the susp lift? I think it will fill in a little better after that then a 35" trail. Anyone have opinions on the Federals? They would be about $400-600 cheaper then Nittos. Or should I get the 35" trails to go with the setup.
In the future I want a 20x10 rim with either -12 or 24mm offset. Which would be better with that setup.
Sorry for the winded story and thanks in advance for the help.

I have the federal couragias and love them

Not sure on your tire size question...makes me brain hurt converting metric sizes to inches.

as for your new wheels/lift I say with a 20x10 wheel go -12mm...with a 4" lift that will look proportional esp with a 10inch wide wheel. 6" lift go -24mm to get that stance. just my opinion

The 325/60-20 Terra Grappler is basically a 35x13.00 tire. My concern is that the deep backspacing of the OEM wheels would cause you rubbing issues on the inside (control arms, frame, sway bar, etc) since some members report rubbing in this area with 12.50 inch wide tires. You may need a wheel spacer to fit them with the OEM wheels, but they would look great with aftermarket wheels.

I was in the same boat with ordering the federals but have read a bunch of mixed reviews on them. But I talked to fishing he has them along with another guy close to where I live he also is a member on the forum "savageram". Savage has them and loves um!..So I pulled the trigger, ordered them and they will be here in a week or so because it saved me $400-$500 bucks. Also the bad reviews I read were back when they first came out so hopn they have fixed the problem by now!

I think the Terras would be better for the amount of hwy vs. off road. Has anyone put the 325s on stock clads.

Has anyone fit the 325/60s on the stock rims yet? Just need to know if I can buy those or go with a 35x12.5. New rims are not in the cards yet this year so I need to run stockers. With my future plans of a 4" RCX and 1.25BL the 325s would fill better then a 35?

he's knows his stuff ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


A 325/60-20 is about a 35x13.00-20. (it's about 12.8" wide, so right in the middle, and 35.5" tall.)

according to that fact your have leveled to max and 1/4" spacers...i dont see why these shouldn't fit. And yes, they will fill better than a 35x12.5x20 because most tires in that size aren't a true 35".
