Default LRG Wheels- Anyone running them?

I tend to shop wheels before I actually buy the truck, it is a sickness. I am really digging the LRG Rims style 103. Anyone running these or LRG rims of any style on their 1500? How is the quality? I have done searches but cannot get anything on LRG, search function says either too short or too common.

Wheel pic - Link. (not sure how to get the pic to show)

Right now my plans are Ram 1500 CC either Laramie or Laramie Longhorn in white, with a leveling kit, 20x9's and a 295/65 AT tire. I am undecided on a trim level since my local dealer does not have any Longhorns for me to check out. Is the Leather quality upgrade worth the cost?

LRG is a fairly new company from what I know. Have not heard much about them. However, I do have some friends running true SEMA show truck and they are switching to LRG. So they must be pretty good. I have been debating on running a set.

Or you could just buy my 2012 and never have to worry about Rims.... Only 12k miles


The Laramie Longhorns are sweet.. Not going to lie. But I don't know if it is really worth the upgrade. Just depends. If you have the funds, then go for it. If you are budget minded then I am sure you would be happy with Laramie. If I had the cash I would've jumped all over the Longhorn, but I also am not big on factory leather. I prefer doing custom leather from Road Wire or Katzkin

Ram725,

Thanks for the info, I really dig the 103's and think they would perfectly compliment the truck. I will have to decide if I go with the 20x9 with the stockish offset or go more bold with the 20x10 with a more agressive offset. I plan such a mild lift with just the Bilstien leveling that I think too agressive of an offset looks goofy.

I did go yesterday and finally drive a Laramie with the 8spd, Wow what a difference! When I drove a 6spd sport a few months back I thought "meh, it was ok but not really impressed." The 8spd with the 3.55's was a whole new animal, excellent acelleration from a stop or kick-down on the highway. I was thinking if I am going with a 35" tire it might be good to step up to the 3.92's. How would I notice the larger diameter tires with the 3.55's?

I agree. The 103s look really nice. I also prefer bold. I always have regretted not going one step further. I too was thinking 20x9, 20x10, and 20x12 and I regret not going 20x12 but the 20x10 do look amazing. You will still look really good with 20x10 -12 Wheels.

I would definitely get 3.92 if you plan on running bigger tires. I have 3.55 on 37s and although I dont mind it and it isnt that big of a deal to me, 3.92 would be much better though. 35s will be fine on 3.55 (I have 37s on 3.55 remember), but 3.92 will push them better and get better mpg with the larger tire.

However, in the end, if you get 3.55 and run 35s you will still be okay

Approximately how far from the stock fender flare is a 20x10 -12 going to stick out?
