I'll shoot. I have load range E tires on my 2500, but seldom use it to tow or haul any real weight any more. The ride is a little harsh over bumpy roads with the full recommended tire pressure. Can I run them at a lower pressure without any ill effects? If so, is there a recommended pressure? Thanks.

What psi are you running them at now? You definitely don't need to run them up at or near max when you aren't towing. I'd recommend somewhere around 50-55 psi on the front and 45-50 psi on the rear.

Truck is at the body shop right now, but I think tire pressure on the door jamb was 75 and 85. I guess I'l drop it down when it comes back and see if it wont improve the ride a bit. Thanks!

If I leave my truck stance stock (2014 1500), but go with a rim like the Fuel Dune with an offset of 1, what is the largest tire I could fit?

I'd like to do something like a 305/55/20. Or even a 295/60/20. I know that will fit with a stock 8" rim, wondering if the offset on the Dune will allow it to fit with a 9" rim.

If I went with a level kit - how big of a tire would fit?

Thanks

You'd be able to fit those tires.
Should you level you can do the following

2" = 34" equivalent
2.5" = 35"

Need advice quick. I have a two tone Maximum steel and silver Laramie with OEM flares. I;m set on a 6" zone lift with 35" tires. My question is rim style and offset. I would prefer 0 offset. not sure how aggressive the -12 offset looks. I wish someone could find a picture of my truck online and photoshop Fuel Throttle machined 20x9 with 35s and Fuel Nutz 20x9 with 35s and 18s on 35s. I was dead set on the Xtreme nx-2 in chrome but can only get those in -12 18x9. I'm racking my brain on this since my truck color maximum steel with silver.

Its a matter of 1/2" difference.
0 offset will stick out approx 1.5" and -12 will stick out 2"
Will you notice it on a truck that's lifted 6"? Probably not....
There will be more comparison going from a 9" wide rim to a 10"

Questions you have to ask yourself is
1) do I want flares
2) how wide of a stance do I want

But again, you're talking 1/2" difference

Thanks, I'm back and forth on whether I want to level. I thought the 295/60/20 were practically 34"

Does a 35" tire require that the rear be lifted too? I got a quote from a local shop on a set up with 325/60/20 and they said that the front and rear needed to be leveled and lifted to fit it. The kit they quoted had a level up front and a small spacer in the back....don't recall the amount, but it was small. I thought Bilsteins at 2.8 would do it.

They also said I had to go with a 20x10 rim with a -12 offset to fit that tire. I was hoping to do the 20x9 with a 1 offset so that it doesn't stick out quite as far....would the 20x9 rub?
