I'd say you'd be just fine with those safari's. I was actually gonna get a set of those when I needed wheels, because of the good reviews I had read, but I stayed with my Kumho's. Good luck! It'll look good on your ram.

Well, I finally have gotten around to buying some tires for those 17" offroad wheels. First, I had Midwest Alloy Wheel Repair refurbish one of the wheels which had quite a few scratches on it, and I need to thank Wes for that job, he did phenomenal work and only charged $85. So I only have $160 in the set of Offroad wheels and they all look brand new now.

As for the tires, for years I have been wanting to try a newer Retread company since I've heard nothing but praise. So did some homework and after speaking with them a few times, I decided to pull the trigger on a set of their 285/70/17 Warden A/T Retreads, which by the way are a duplicate tread of the BFG A/T TA KO's. Additionally I requested a matching set of BFG A/T TA KO casings be used, hard to go wrong when they start with a great casing. These are D Load, 8 ply tire with a max psi of 65. Overkill for a 1/2 ton I know, I'm currently running them at 35 psi, but thinking about jumping to 40. I know most snarl at the idea of a retread (my father sure does), but if you haven't looked lately, check out the process that http://treadwright.com uses. I'll give a shout out to them because I'm very impressed with their work, and so was my mechanic buddy who mounted them for me. In-fact, he couldn't even tell they were retreads until I told him. The set of 4 new BFG retreads were $498 shipped to my house. About exactly 1/2 price of a new set of BFG's.











As a report.....This size equates to 33's, and they fit like a glove. Absolutely no rubbing, even at full lock. They have however hurt my gas mileage. I didn't think that was even possible, but I have gone from a normal commuting average of 13.5, to a dismal 11.8 on average now. Ouch!! I'm sure Al Gore would be having a hissy right now. LOL!

I am truly jealous that you found a set of those rims for only $75. I have been looking for a set for months but with no luck on a set in my price range. they look great on your truck

Thanks Mopar! This is my first experience with a retread and so far I'm very happy with the decision. Tires are typically something I wouldn't skimp and and go cheap, but I figured saving $500 was worth trying them out. I checked out third party tire tests and multiple forums, and not once have I read a bad thing about Treadwright's retreads. I'd certainly recommend them, I don't think you'd regret buying em!

Thanks Hauser! Yeah, was one of those very few times we come across a truly great deal that ends up being true. I actually found them in Nebraska and was willing to drive 3 hours to go get them, but he even had a friend going to Kansas City bring them to me, so free delivery too! LOL! Looks like our trucks are pretty similar, same color even. Hope ya can land a set soon! Take care!

Looks great! The Ram looks awesome also! You don't see many around the KC area that look that nice still. Most have a lot of rust or just aren't taken care of.

Thanks dtownkc! You're absolutely right, the truck was in Nebraska it's whole life up until last March when I bought it and since it doesn't have a spec of rust on it and has such low miles, I think it must have sat during the winters....as odd as that is.
