A thinner tire isn't going to do much for you... but a shorter tire would. But we're talking 0.5 mpg max.

Yup that will fit no problem.

Ok finial decision on wheels are method standard 18x9 -12 offset tires are toyo at2

Question is what size 295/70 or 35x12.5 size wise they are very close height and 1 inch different wider. Weight is a huge difference and I have no idea why.

Bilstiens are at 2.1

Thanks in advance

With Bilsteins at 2.1" I would recommend the 295/70/18's.

I'm looking to buy a Ram 1500 Outdoorsman and I'm looking for a wider 17" wheel so I can fit wider and taller tires on it. I like the Ion Alloy 174 but I don't know if they will fit. Ion Alloy sells the wheel in a 17x9 5x5.5 0 offset pattern. Does anyone have any insight? I'm planning on running 315/70/17 Cooper Discoverer AT3's and Bilsteins on the truck.

0 offset will move the centre of the rim out further by 25mm... On top of that, the stock Outdoorsman rim 17" rim is 7" wide... Therefore you will end up with an inch on either side of the centre as well. So, all in all (and Brandon can correct me if I am wrong) you will move the outside of your rim out by 50mm (1 inch = 25mm + the 25mm from the 0 offset).

Going from stock 265 t0 315s is a difference of 50mm or 2 inches. You are already gaining 25mm by the offset of the rim... So you are going to have the tire 25mm further back into the wheel well. When the guys put my wheels on, they told me at full turn I still had more than an inch of space between the tire and anything it would rub on.

I don't know if any of this helped... But I think you'd be OK, especially if you do a level (I have not... I'm stock.)

I believe this is somewhat explained on the first page and first few posts.
But yes, it will work.
As mentioned above the more negative the offset, the further it is pushed out from the truck.
Stock is +19.05
So 0 is 19mm further out from stock.

Too much negative and you will need more height or trimming. But 0 is a perfect offset for wider tires and minimal to zero rub

I read the thread you made about it but I wanted to be 100% sure before I ordered anything. Thanks for your help.
