Power loss isn't really that bad, or i don't notice now. The MPG hit is pretty tough. My electronic fuel estimate went from 15.4 to 11.7 now. It is worse than I expected. I don't drive a lot though (10k after a year) so it doesn't bother me.

I will probably go 285 BFG ATs next time. The trail grapps look incredible but i think the AT will be a little more functional.

Good luck choosing.

Looks great!

Be sure to build the taller tire size into your mileage calculation as you're traveling further than your truck thinks you are.

I have 295/60/20 TG's on my 2010 Ram Crew 4x4 with factory 20's and a 2.5 TGC level. Only rubs at lock. Love it. No spacers. Have been running this setup for 65k miles.

Bout the same here! Pretty rough, but I haven't calibrated my speedo either, So odometer, Speedo and computer are a bit off.

Going from stock 20`s to the 295`s. How much does it throw out the speedometer say at 70mph. Or at any speed I guess.

Use THIS website and input your stock tire size and then the aftermarket size you want to run. It will tell you how far out your speedo will be.

It turned out really good (IMO) and I'm happy with the outcome. A couple of observations so far:

These tires are huge. I have def lost some power. I could tell immediately. I suspect my 15.4mpg will go to 14mpg. There is much more of a hum noise while going down the road. Not too bad but much more than factory.

I expected all of these things (except the rubbing) so it is what I thought it would be.

Here's a few pictures:




Just wondering how much power loss you had and what is you axle ratio?
Truck looks great
