Default Tire Size

Question for you folks. I have 265 70 R17 that are on my ram right now and that's the original tires on it. Now that the snow has fallin here in alberta need to put some winter tires on my ram. Whats the difference in sizes. I have a line from a dealer on take offs but they are different size. 295 75 R17.

What the difference between them?
Can I use these tires?

295/75R17's will be about 3" taller than what you have now. My guess is they will not fit without at least a level kit. They will also be about an inch wider than your stock tires. If you want to go bigger, I would suggest going to a 285/70R17 on your stock wheels.

Rough calculation is

265/70 R17 295/75 R17
section width: 10.43" 11.61"
diameter: 31.57" 34.40"
sidewall heighht: 7.28" 8.70"

These numbers were provided from an Iphone app so take them with a grain of salt but they should give you a general idea of the change. Hope this helps and remember each tire manufacturer has a slight variance in overall change. Good luck!
