Default Tire Question

So me and my brother in law both drive 06 Rams with the 275/60 20, $hitty Wrangler tires with Chrome Wheels.

Is this statement true ?
33x12.5.20 is the same as 275/60 20 ??

Yes or no ?

If not what is required for the 33's to fit.

Also, Nitto Mud Grapplers, Noisy or no ??

The GY's are 33" dia. I disagree that the Wrangler HP's are $hitty. They are highway tires, not offroad. I have tried Avons, ok but not as good wear as HP's. I'm now running General HTS nice looking, but now I notice that when you hit culvert bumps caused by frost, the ass end jumps sideways. The GY's aren't so bad. I'd expect the Nittos to shine off road, not sure on the asphalt.

275 calculated out are 10.8" wide but from experience it depends on the tire. A tire that says 33x12.5 may be 32" tall and 12" wide or it may be 33.5" tall and 13" wide, it all depends on the tire manufacturer. So a 275/60R20 may be 32" tall and 11.5" wide or 33" tall and 10" wide depends on the tire manufacturer.
Nitto Mud Grapplers aren't too bad new but the more they wear the louder they get. I'm running a set of 35" right now and they seem to get louder by the day. But I'm a country boy and like the noise but if you aren't use to it, it might drive you crazy. Especially if you have never run a mud tire.

I don't know the width of the 20's but 305's will fit. I had 315's on my stock 17's which are shorter in width than the 20's. You'll be fine.
