Default Tire Recommendations... Ram 2500

Hey Gang,
Well after being good for a month since trading up to a 2500 and only adding the Tonneau Cover and WeatherTec's... I am now itching for a new add on and I think tires are next!!!

I wanted to swap out my Rims too but I think rim money would be better spent on other things...

So here is what I am working with... 2012 Ram 2500 Crew Cab and Long Box, looking to use stock 17 inch wheels...

I was looking at Nitto Trail Grapplers in the 295/75r17's But i am wondering if these will look big enough the gigantic wheel wells.

Any other suggestions? Looking for something with an agressive look but not too overkill!

Keep in mind I tow a 36' (10,000lbs) Travel Trailer every weekend from May 15th to October 15th!

Thanks!

On my 2011 2500 I had 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on it and it looked pretty good but should of went to a 295/70/17. My next tires on my 2012 2500 will be the 297/70/17 Nitto Trail Grapplers and I tow a 9500lb Travel Trailer. I believe you can go up to a 305/70/17 without rubbing.

Awesome thanks!
I also just found the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac which can be found pretty cheap in the states... anyone with experience with those?

I would recommend Dura's over Nitto's. Just my 2 cents.

Look better, work better, last longer.

I've tried 315-70-17 on stock rims on my 2010 2500 and they rubbed the pitman arm a little with no level or lift. Pic next to 285-70-17
