Question '04 Ram Wheels/Tires Question

I'm new here guys, and young; so bear with me.
So, I got a 2004 Ram 1500 4wd. Tires are 275/60/20 which I believe are stock, along with the stock Ram rims, which I believe are 20". I'm interested in buying black rims for it, but all the websites that include tires are 285/50/20, which are smaller. I don't want to sacrifice tire size, nor do I want to sacrfice the Cooper Zeon LTz's because they look sharp, and especially height. I don't my rig to look "bagged." So I guess my question is; Can I put certain rims into the tires I have and have them not affect anything, except appearance (for the better)?

*If this confuses you, please don't run. Just post and let me respond because I really need help.

Thanks

Yes, 275/60/20 is the stock size and yes, 285/50/20 is smaller than stock. Are you looking to sell your current tires? If you want to buy a set of 20" black rims, just search for a 20x9. Plenty of online stores sell rims/tires.

It's just a rim size. If you were to buy an aftermarket 20x9 rim, you could use your current size tire. Or you could upgrade to a 275/65/20 and gain a little height without sacrificing any width.

Oh okay, and I will probably up the tire size in the future..if rims themselves weren't so expensive I'd get right on it. But thanks so much for your help.

yeah, one more a bit off topic.
Headlights; Spyder, Anzo, Tradesonic' JY..what's the difference? Other then price. I want the Halo Projector look, whatever it's called. Is one better than the other, and why?

I can't speak for Spyder or Tradesonic, but Anzo is a great choice. My shop where I get all my accessories has countless truck add-ons and Anzo is one of the top sellers for lighting. They make great quality products, not to say the other two don't, but I don't know anything about them. To this day, everytime I walk in there, they ask if I'm interested the Anzo headlights for my truck. They look outstanding, but I've got other mods in mind.

not sure what brand these are, but I like the way they look.

I wish a picture was provided with these Anzo's, turned on at night. But out of these two, which would you suggest?

Wow, you're right, between those two, I like the first one better. Here's a quick pic of the Anzo's on an 05:



And here's a video of the Spyder headlights being installed:
