Default Winter Tires

I just purchased a 2010 laramie with 20" wheels. I have a set of almost new 245 50 20 winter tires from my SUV. Will they work on my Laramie?

Nice looking Ram. Great choice of color. Thanks for the pic. Can't answer about the tire size though.

Yeah, the tires will fit...they'll look a little funny compared to the stockers (lower profile) and you might have a small speedo error while they are on but they will work.

What will be the speedo effects and will it void my warranty?

when your traveling 60mph by speedo, you will actually only be going about 54mph....
Your sidewall will be significantly lower by almost 2 inches
I wouldn't recommend running them if I were you but that's just me....
NICE TRUCK!

You'll be going from a 33" diameter tire to a 29.5" diameter tire . Your speedo will be going faster than you actually will be . Good for a speed limit buffer . I don't believe that it will effect your warranty . They may question that it will be extending your warranty time (by mileage) .

Don't think I'll be running those tires.. Will have to sell them.
