I thought this size tire would be a not too skinny, not too wide alternative for my Ram. A friend of mine, however, brought this to my attention. Nitto is the only company making this size. If they stop producing this size and I needed a tire, I would be in trouble. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.

don't get those tires. he is right, if they discontinue the tires, and u need one, you are SOL. if you want a wider tire as well as taller, try a 305/55/20. just about the same as a 295/60/20 and there are a bunch of different tires out there in that size.

X2, I wouldn't wanna be stuck like that. Although, I don't think Nitto would ever go under. But I wouldn't take the chance.

Yup, if it were me, I'd go one size up. 305/60-20's. Lot's of choices in that range and will look great.
