All,
I have a new 2014 Sport 4x4 Crew Cab 6.4 bed and Air Suspension. I need to ditch the OEM tires ASAP. They have me stuck in forest every time I need to fill my 200gal tank with maple sap...errrrr.

That said I'd like to go with General AT2's LT35/12.50R20 tires on the OEM rims. I know I will need to change the offset but not sure to what offset (thinking zero) and what else will need to be done or can be done with the Air Suspension to accommodate the 35in tires.

Any ideas or advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Thanks!

You won't be able to run a tire near that large with the air suspension. I'm not sure exactly how large you can go with it as I haven't dealt with it and personally am not a fan of it so I don't pay attention. But from what I have read I believe a 285/60/20 or something close to that is the largest you can go with air suspension. I'd recommend doing a search on the forum (use google as it's easier - "largest tire with air suspension site:ramforumz.com") and you should be able to find quite a few threads of guys talking about that.

anyone know the offset of the stock rt 22'' wheels. my buddy just put a set on his 14 slt with stock ride hight. hes running 305-45 and they dont rub. a little math says they are 3/16 of an inch smaller diameter than stock 275-60-20. i want to run that size set up but with aftermarket 22x10's, so i need the offset. any ideas from you rt guys? also, 3/16 shorter should have a minimal effect on speedo error, im thinking around 1 or 2 mph at 70, am i right on this?

does it matter the hub bore size when buying after market rims?

Yes it needs to at least be bigger than what your hub is. Off the top of my head I don't remember the spec for a 1500 but I'll try and look it up and get back to you. Most aftermarket wheels are a standard bore and you'll want to get the hub rings to make the wheels hubcentric.

Ram 1500's hub size is 77.8mm. But as I said most aftermarket wheels are going to have a standard size larger than that. Just specify your truck when you order and make sure you get the hub rings and you'll be good to go.

I have a 2014 3500 mega, was wondering if 285/75/18's will fit on the stock wheels without rubbing, no lift.



Thanks in advance
