Unless you find a way to keep it in offroad 2 all the time you're going to rub, no question.

Just put a 2" front spacer on my 08-1500. You guys have any feedback on what the biggest tire I can clear with chains? Im open to new wheels as well. Currently they are stock, but wont be for much longer.

I have an '06 with a 2" level running 305/70r17 terra grapplers and wouldn't have a problem with chains. Wheels are 10mm offset.

Okay - I will apologize for the long post upfront - but I am ready to finally pull the trigger and get wheels and tires. I have read Brandon's guide and so many post on the forum website it's enough to make my head spin!! It is all very educational and helpful but also makes me question myself by reading so much information.

I am not an expert on this stuff so I appreciate any input.

I am considering Fuel throttles in either 18x9 or 20 inch. I currently have the 20 inch chrome clad stock wheels. (The stock tires actually measure out the 32 inches high). I have Bilsteins set to 2.1 on the front and stock rear. I am considering either BFG ATKO 3056518 or 2856520. bFG says the 18 inch tire has a 33.7 inch diameter and the 20 is a 34.7 inch diameter.

It looks like the 18x9 inch wheels will actually give me more sidewall. It looks as though 20 inch wheels will give me a bigger overall tire but a smaller sidewall.

Fuel offers the wheels in either +1or +19 offset. It doesn't matter the size. They also make a comment on their website that the lip size is 1.57" regardless of the backspace. I'm not sure I understand how that can be unless they add material to the back somehow?

My questions are:
From what I researched it looks like the +1 offset will stick out less than 1 inch further than what I have now. However it looks like the tires are also wider than what I have now so does that add to the 1 inch also?
Also what is the advantage going to a 10 inch wide wheel? Is there one? All the 10 inch wide wheels have negative offsets...not sure how that fits in.
Should I be considering other sizes?
Do the BFG tire measurements stay true once mounted?
Aam I missing something?

Thanks for the forumz thoughts and education!

You are correct that the difference between the 18 and 20 inch wheels is the amount of side wall you have. There are more sizes than a 305/65/18 and a 285/65/20 though... I wouldn't limit your choices to that. The full spec list can be found HERE. What your decision really needs to start with is whether or not you want an 18" or 20" rim. There are many tires with different overall sizes that will fit onto them.

If you stick with a +19 offset you're limited to a 285 wide tire to guarantee no rubbing. The +1 offset is a lot more common on leveled Rams as it provides more options for tire sizing. It will be sticking out 0.75" more.
You are correct in them adding/removing material from the mounting surface of the wheel to change the offset as well. The lip depth will be the same no matter what.

The advantage of a 10" wide wheel is a deeper lip, that's about it. With a 10" wide wheel and a negative offset you will definitely be sticking out further as well. With the tire sizes you're talking about I'd be staying with a 9" wide wheel.
Yes you should be considering other sizes as I mentioned above.
The spec sheet I've provided shows the overall measurements of the tires when mounted.

Thanks Brandon. It looks like the 305 is the next to largest BFG they make in 18" I was thinking the 325 may be too large. (Width and height?) will it fit OK as long as i stay with +1 offset?

With the +1 offset you can fit the 325/65/18. It will be tight, but it will work.

Will 2009 Ram 1500 Hemi wheels fit on my 2014 Ram 1500 V6 Pentastar 4x4?

Trying to find out if 2009 Ram 1500 Hemi wheels will fit on my 2014 Ram 1500 V6 4x4?
The 2009 wheels are P275/60/R20 114S
My 2014 wheel are P265/70/R17 113R

I've actually mounted the 09 rims on my truck, I get vibration above 60 miles per hour and also the truck pulls left and right slightly.
I had them balanced yesterday and no improvement.
I've read about positive caster becuase of the wider tire, also read about hub-centric-rings but not sure if any of these will help and perhaps the 09 wheel are just not compatible with my 2014 truck? I'm tempted to just put my OEM 17's back on (but that would require buying new tpms sensors $275, mounting and balancing $200 and re-flash my speedo back to 17 inch wheels). Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

There shouldn't be any issues running stock 2009 wheels on a 2014. The hub bore and bolt pattern hasn't changed as far as I know. It's weird that you're having vibration problems with them. What I'd recommend doing is taking the wheels off and check the hub bore of your old ones compared to the new ones to verify that they are the same. If not you may need some hub centric rings to center the wheel on the hub. That should eliminate the vibration issue.
As far as the wander from side to side, it has nothing to do with your alignment as it doesn't change by changing the wheels/tires. Wider tires just tend to do that on the road (even though we're talking less than half an inch here)....

Default Best Highway Tire

I'm a Michelin man, always have been and I'm in southern Ontario so we get lots of winter. I have a set of summer and winter tires for my car but I use Michelin MS/2's for my jeep liberty and since it have 4wd I haven't purchased winter tires. They're ok, but I have to be careful with corners and stopping.

I'm 75% highway and only go off road to use a boat ramp about a dozen times a year.

Can you recommend a tire with similar noise and tread wear characteristics as the Michelin's but with better snow handling capability?

My 2014 CC 4x4 should arrive early October.
