What state are you from MEDIC7? I may be interested if you want to sell your old 20's.

I have a 2005 big horn 1500 quad cab. I have the stock 20 inch wheels. I love the truck but hate the tires. They are Wrangler Hp's 275/60r20s. Im looking for new tires before the snow flys. Does anyone have any idea whats the tallest tire I can run on that rim without any sort of rubbing? I do alot of icefishing in the winter and the lakes around here get drifted with snow pretty bad its not uncommon to be driving thru a foot of snow hitting 2-3 foot deep drifts. Any input would be much appreciated guys.

Remember tires can weigh more than the rim on truck tires. Buy a good air filter and keep the same tires inflated, learn to drive more efficiently and save the money and superior looks.

People that buy a truck and gripe about mileage hmmm... I went from a 2000 dodge dakota 3.9 6cyl with 3.92 gears and 170 hp that weighed around 4000 lbs. To a 2005 dodge ram with the hemi with 345hp and 3.92 gears that weighs 6600lbs and gets better gas mileage than my dakota. Should you care about mileage if you own a truck? I dont think so. If you want mileage with a truck go with a diesel. Or just fill er up!

Btw does anyone know the max tire size i can put on stock 20s?

A 285/70 or 285/65 will fit, Tyler. You could try a 305/65 but with that section width you might rub a bit on the inside of the wheelwell at full steering lock.

I got 20's on my ride and was thinking 305's and have been told also they might rub a little. Just need a slight cut at the end of the bumber or a lift kit. So i have been told.

I'd recommend a leveling kit if you want to fit bigger tires.

Thanks maddog. Priced out some 285/65/20s today local tire shop said 1300 bucks for bfg all terrains. Ive heard mixed reviews on how they wear. Hardly anyone makes a tire that size so theres not many options.

Default your wheels?

The reason I'm doing this is I'm starting a new job and having to drive a litte farther and try to squeeze some more mileage out.

Thanks
I am looking for 5 spoke chrome 20" wheels for my truck. I believe the 07s are the ones I'm looking for. Are you interested in selling yours?
