Noobie here, sorry if this has been asked already. Just ordered '14 1500 sport with air suspension. What is the widest tire I can go? Some have mentioned problems with rubbing at lower heights on the air suspension which might not bode well for wider tires. Thanks!

Here's my first real post.

I have a 2010 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 5.7
Just purchased Rancho Quicklift Loaded front coils and 25% extra capacity rear coils. I have the stock 20" on the truck right now. I live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Lots of snow, so I want to put the tallest skinny tires that I can fit on the truck. Anything wider than 11" won't handle as well in deep snow. Any suggestions on what size tire to get. I'm looking to get the most clearance without rubbing. Hopefully I will have enough to buy a new set of rims down the road. I do want to stick with the 20" rim though.
Thanks

A 275/65/20 is the best size meeting the requirements that you've stated.

Hi All
Newbie here - my first post after reading for months. Thanks for sharing your knowledge as it helps more than the person who posted the question.
My truck is supposed to be in this week after 2 months of order time. I want to change the stock 20" to fuel 18" and add Biltsteins 5100 leveling shocks. I think I decided on BFG AT KO. Can I run 305/65 18x9 rim with -12 or do I have to go 0 offset?

You can run the -12 offset if you want to. Absolutely no problems with that once you add the Bilsteins. The only difference between the 0 and -12 offset is how far they'll stick out past the fender.

Thanks! Ive read a lot about 18" vs. 20". Is there a big differnece in your opinion? Will the 18s give a better ride and better off road performance or is it not enough to notice?

Depending on what you're doing in it yes, they'll give slightly better performance. But not unless you're in deep snow or mud which most people are not. The difference performance wise will be very minimal.
Ride wise I wouldn't even worry about it. Go with what you think looks better. Until you get into actual low profile tires I don't think the difference is big enough to notice. I ran 20's with 35's on my old 1500 and am now running 17's with 37's on my 3500. Sure it's a different truck so it's hard to compare fairly but I don't think the extra 5" of sidewall made much of a difference at all ride wise.

Thanks... I appreciate the input. Ive been out of the truck world for 20 years and things have changed a bit!
I live in Phoenix AZ so snow and mud arent much of an issue! But rocks on desert trails, and stuff like that are an issue and it seems that the BFG are better suited with the 3 ply sidewalls - not sure if that is a marketing trick or not - and didnt know if an extra inch of sidewall would make a big differnce -- didnt know these choices would be so hard!! And I dont even have the truck yet - LOL!

Another newbie here. Don't even have the truck yet, should be here in the next week or so. 2500 with air suspension. Want to put on 20x10 Fuel Mavericks with 35x12.50 Toyo M/T tires. Not sure what offset to get. Was told to go with -12 but it seems like they will stick out pretty good. I prefer them tucked in as much as possible. Is -12 correct or can something less be used. Also, what do I need to do to the front end to avoid any rubbing issues. From what I've read a 2" level is what I need to do (true?) and does rear air suspension cause an issue with leveling? If no issue with the air suspension, what is the best way to do the leveling. Appreciate the help.

If you don't want them sticking out very far you'll definitely want to go with a more positive offset than -12. 0 or +12 is more what you want to be looking at.

If you don't want any rubbing at all then yes, you will want to level the front end. The best way to do it is with 2" lift springs, longer shocks, and an adjustable track bar to recenter the front axle. The cheaper option would be to go with spacers rather than lift springs. Check out companies like BDS, Top Gun Customz, Kore, Thuren, and Carli.

You shouldn't have any issue leveling the front end with air suspension.
