So Ive spent a week searching forums until 2-3am, so dont tell me to use google. I get it... With that being said
I have a 2013 dodge ram 3.6L 1500 crewcab. I need tires ASAP and it was time to upgrade yesterday. I plan on buying bilstein 5100 set to max but Im waiting on purchasing my wheels/tires. My truck is a daily driver and will probably never see mud or any off roading. I love mt's but think its smarter for me to stick with at tires. The rims Im planning on going with are either 20x9 or 20x10 with a -12 offset... subject to change. I did buy the rivet style fender flares which a body shop will be installing for me.
Originally I was planning on doing 33x12.5 20 mud tires. But after research I switched that to 305/55/20 nitto terras. I like them, but I dont love them.
Further research showed me people are losing 1.5-2mpg with the 255/60/20s.. which isnt bad, so i started leaning towards that, but I dont have the hemi.
How much more mpg roughly would I lose with the 295/60 vs 305/55 on a 3.6l? If you dont own a pentastar, a guess would work because I have absolutely no clue.
Will that set up even work? Anyone have it? Ive been seeing yays and nays.
thanks in advance!
My History BTW:
I sold my 2007 tundra on 35 mt's because I was driving 50 miles a day and was getting 8-9mpgs. I LOVED LOVED LOVED MY TUNDRA, and it was cool and all while it lasted, but got kinda of silly real fast. I saw the v6 ram and was all over it. Pics of my last truck so you kind of get the style I am into. I miss that truck everyday:
