D...
For one... The difference between the 2 is equivalent to 35" (325) vs 37" (355)
Ive ran both on mine and run 355 right now.

355 is not big per say, but you'll need the height and honestly proper gearing to have your truck still feel near stock in power unless a slight lag in acceleration and Fuel MPG completely thrown out the window is OK with you.

Based on your above. Stuck with the 325/65/18 tires.

Here was my truck on the 325/60/20 tires.



Here it is now with 355/65/18

So are the 18s cool or do I go for the 20s?

Why?

What Brandon said.... You'll save about $300ish from 20's going with an 18" package.

Fast. Both look awesome!!! That is with a 6 inch lift?

Any thoughts on recouping gas mileage lost with the bigger tires?

Thanks.
Gears is the biggest thing, but many can't do it or want to do it.
That said, selecting the right tire size based on your gears will help, a tuner will help, however... Lifting will do just that. Lessen your MPG and many just have to accept that fact.
It's hard to have both a lifted truck and Fuel sipper

Fast,

Just to confirm I want the -12 offset 325 wheels correct, not the +18 offset?

Thanks,

Dave...

Correct!
+18 is 1 off from stock rims at +19

Thanks for all the help and info.

I am ordering a K&N Performance intake kit.

Any thoughts on a good engine tuner - 2012 Ram 1500 4.7 8 cylinder? So many choices.

Dave...

If you need pricing on this kit or want to support a Z vendor, we can help you out

As for tuner, I would say go with the SuperChips, which we can provide you as well.

Let me know

If you can provide links with the recommended K&N Cold Air Intake for my Ram, as well as the recommended engine tuner from Bully's to maximize my hp and gas mileage then please do so as I should be ordering within the next few days.

Bear in mind that I will be having an off road shop install these items (Monmouth Trucks).

Again Dodge Ram 1500. 2012. 4.7 V8. Flex.
