Default Tire and Wheel Sizing Help

I have a 2010 Ram 1500 Quadcab 4.7 4x2 ST and I had a question about the Sizing of my rims and tires.

I am currently Deployed to Iraq so I cant look at my truck up close.

I want to get new Wheels and Tires but I dont know what size I will need. Are all ST rams the same size? All I know is that I need a 5 bolt.

Would these fit on there?

Your bolt pattern is 5 X 5.5" or 5 X 139.7 mm so those wheels will fit as long as you get the right offset. The tires will work but they may be a bit too tall. I'd recommend at 65 aspect ratio tire.

That tire is one of the factory sizes for the 2010. You'll have no problem with it. Good pricing on those rims too.

Those Grabbers are an okay tire - not superb, but ok. I had a set and they are pretty soft. If it's hot where you live they may not hold out too long.

Ask around about brands, lots of people here have first-hand knowledge of damn-near every tire going. It might be more valuable than a simple review.

Offset is the way a rim is set up relative to center placement:

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/tech/...jsp?techid=101

If the bolt circle is more towards the outside of the wheel (like a front wheel drive car) it has positive offset.
If the bolt circle is more towards the inside of the wheel, it has negative offset.

You have to make sure the rim offset is correct- otherwise you could have some horrendous rubbing/clearance problems......

Is there a website or link that I can use to see the Offset my truck will take? Internet is slow here in Iraq so a direct link or reply would be great! Thanks!
