i know that the stock 20" tires are 33" tall, but my question was regarding the width, the 12.50" equals approx 315mm, this is a little bit more than 275.

Check with the manufacturers website to be sure on actual mounted measured widths/heights.

Grapplers measured 12.2" x 32.2" new, now nearly bald and replaced with General Grabber AT2's today
Same 305/50R20 size (12.4" x 32" mounted) and still no rubbing, no spacers, but new Sport wheels off a 14' Ram.









upper control arm clearance is a little less than a 1/4"

Default Mounting problems

I hope my post is okay here. I have posted in other parts of this forum, but this seems the most knowledgeable.
I am having a real issue with snow tires right now.
I have a 2003 Ram 1500 Laramie with 275-60-20 Cooper discoverer HT plus tires on it right now. Hate them. In the winter they get so hard its like driving on hockey pucks.
Canadian Tire had Cooper ATw tires on sale last week for $202 plus install etc. but I couldn't get them at the local store, so I drive 30 miles to a different store to get them. They can't install for a week, so I bring them back to the local store where the wait to install was only 3 days. here is where the fun starts.
The technician tries to mount one, but can't. Figures it's because they were in the back of my truck, and are too stiff because of the cold. Okay, fair enough. So they put them beside the heater for an hour and try again.
Still can't get them to seat. They tried putting a strap around the outside of the tire, still no luck. I watched the fellow working at it and he really did try, but it seems they are too stiff to push out to the rim to seat.
The tires on now are Cooper, 275-60-20. The tires I want put on are Cooper, 275-60-20. Only difference is the speed rating, which may mean a stiffer sidewall.
Now I have to wait til this Thursday, next available appointment time.
They are going to try a tube to expand the tire enough to seat, then remove the tube.
I have never heard of such a run around to mount a set of tires.
The rims are Dodge rims, 9.5 inches wide.
Cooper specs say Min.8 inch, max 9.5 inch.

The reason I want these tires is they are true all season.
From what I can tell they are all seasons, but have the snow peak emblem, so no need to switch out in the summer.
Any ideas or opinions are greatly appreciated

Is anybody running a ReadyLift 2.5 Leveling Kit and 295/60/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers? Did you need spacers?

Using a Leveling kit doesn't change the space between the wheel/tire and the upper control arm that may or may not require the use of wheels spacers.

Spacers are used to move the tire out away from suspension components based on wheel size and offset.

It does not matter if you are lowered, stock or leveled.

The distance here remains the same


What wheels are you currently using?

According to Nitto's site
LT 295/60R20 Terra Grappler is 12.36" x 34.45
the new Terra Grappler G2 is 11.77" x 33.94"

I would say the first would be very close
(see my pic above that shows my 12.4" tire on a stock 20" x 9" Sport Wheel)

the G2 should fit no problem at only 11.77" wide.

Hey fellow ram owners! I'm not too computer literate and don't know if I'm doing this right or not. I am looking to buy an aftermarket rim and tire. Everyone has told me a lot of different things don't know the truth from the bull. I am looking at the fuel coupler d556 20x9. I've been told the +0 off set and also the + 20 offset are my best fitments. I am also on the fence about the new rubber. I've narrowed it down between the toyo open country in either the lt275/65/20 or the extremes in a 295/60/20. Can't make up my mind. I am not looking to put any fender flares on. I don't think I need to worry about the size too much I have the airbag suspension so worst case I can run in off road 1 mode. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Noob question:
So the stock wheels on my 4x4 are a 20x8" with a 0 offset for backspacing of 4.5"?

If I were to switch to an 18x9" wheel, to keep the same wheel placement I would need to move to a 12+ offset which would give me backspacing of 5.5" correct?

I want to keep the tires (275/70r18) in the fenders and not stick out. Guess I really need to know if I should do 18x9 with 0 offset or 18x9 with 18+ offset? Help! Thanks!

Great post! I am going 315/70/17 on my leveled 05 Ram 1500 with stock 17x8" rims (from OEM Offroad package) since the Cooper Discoverer S/T Maxx spec minimum rim width as 8"! Trying to go as tall as possible with stock rims and level kit.

I hope 315 is not too wide! Please Let me know if I am wrong.
Now, I need to find a shop that stocks them.

Thanks,
Michael
