Default Question

So i am looking at ordering new tires for my truck. the ones that are on there are 285/50R20 and the ones I want are 275/60R20. Will these fit? There are a couple different numbers that aren't matching up. I wouldn't think that there would be a problem but I figured that I would ask before hand. Thanks to anyone that can help me out

Yup, they'll fit no problem. They'll be a little narrower and a little taller.

What ever size you want to run, just remember the math:

everythings in MM's unless you are talking about flotation sizes


[Tire width(275)/25.5mm=10.78inches x sidewall %0.60=6.47inches x 2 number of sidewalls=12.94inches + rim diameter 20 inches= 32.94 inches

Tire width devided into inches times sidewall ratio times 2 sidewalls + rim diameter= total wheel heigth.
