Cool larger tires on stock 20 inch rim

I will be in the market for tires soon and am pumped to get rid of the good year car tires on my ram. stock they are 275/60r20. wondering what sizes people have upgraded too with no lift and no rubbing? I am thinking something semi aggresive like Nitto Terra Grapplers. I have always owned jeeps and lifted for larger tires, but the ram wont fit in the garage with a lift. suggestions on size and manufacture. Also would like something with a good wear life, like at least 40,000 miles. Thanks!

If you want something with really good wear and an aggressive tread take a look at the BFG A/T KOs. You can fit 33" tires (305/55/20) tires on the truck. If you want you can also get yourself a leveling kit to raise it around 2". I actually had that same set up and fit in my garage. It was really close but it fit haha

Thanks will look into the BFGs, had a few sets on jeep wrangler. They wore good, just so expensive last i checked. will price out them and also the level kit isnt a bad idea. i noticed that some guys throw them on and then they look like they have a load in the box all the time. any suggestion on a manufacture that doesnt over do it??

I would think you could get a 285/65 on the truck with no issues.

I agree on the BFG's. Nice tire and a great looking tread pattern.

Terra Grapplers are a good choice! You could go up to a 275/65/20 I believe with no rubbing issues. The tires will be closer to a 34" instead of 33" which are the stock ones.

With your garage i suspect 305/55's would be the best. Keep your stock 33's and get a bigger footprint.

I used the "DayStar", I think that was the name, 2.5 inch front & rear lift kit....Inexpensive, and good quality....Truck looks great, and rides the same

I checked in to bfg ko's and they arent cheap! Like 350 a tire and up depending where you look. I think i like the 305/50/R20xl Cooper zeon ltzs, the ratings seem good on them and i can get them for like $225 a tire in town. Still not cheap, but not going with street tread again! alos may still price the terra grapplers also, look to be very similar to the coopers. Now have to convince momma! thats the even harder part then deciding which ones to buy!
