Hi there, I'd like to feel re-assured about a winter tire package. I have a 2013 Sport 4x4, stock 20" wheels and 275/60R20 tires, stock suspension.

For winters, I'm looking at 17x7.5 wheels and 265/70R17 Michelin X-Ice.

That's from an SXT truck as per your typical fill-in-the-blanks tire site.

Would be fine for Sport?

Yes it will work no problem. Your speedometer and odometer will be off though because of the tire size. You will actually be going slower than your speedometer says and driving a shorter distance than what your odometer says.

Hey gang, I currently have stock 17 inch wheels/tires on my Ram. They are 265 70 17. Will 275 65 17 tires fit on my rims? Will I have any issues?

Would these fit on 20 inch stock chrome clad rims? Would they fit on a 2014 Levelled only Ram?

okay guys, new to the whole custom thing. I am wanting some new wheels and tires on my 03 ram 4x4 1500 quad cab. I am going to put a leveling kit on it, I don't want to really raise it a whole lot but would like a beefier look. please give me some suggestions and ideas pertaining to sizes and dealers.

I would recommend a good AT tire. Toyo AT2's or Nitto Terra Grapplers are both very popular choices. Are you looking to stick with a stock size or are you wanting to go larger?

275/65/17's are shorter than your stock 265/70/17's.... so yes they'll fit no problem. I'm just wondering why you'd even want to do that. The stock tires are already short enough, why go smaller?

I'm not sure what you're referring to here....

For an 03 you don't need to buy a leveling kit. Just crank up your torsion bars to lift the front end of your truck approximately 2 inches. You might want to buy longer shocks to avoid having them bottom out when your suspension drops. But they may not be necessary. You'll also want to get an alignment done after you crank them up.

As far as tires go it really depends on what you want to do. Are you planning to run stock wheels or aftermarket? What kind of tires do you want to run? Those are two key pieces of information that will really influence what we recommend for you.

I also have 2500/3500 oem flares. How much will this rim and tire combo stick out ???
I will be running a 295/60/20 trail grappler

Also call bully's get me this wheel ??
Thanks

With that set up you'll be fairly flush with your flare. The tread should be tucked under it completely but the bulge will stick out slightly past.

Send Bully's an email at sales@bullysperformance.com and let them know you're a forum member and what you're looking for. They'll get you going from there.
