I am trying to find the best tires to replace the OEM Goodyear Eagles on my 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab with 20" tires. What do you have? What would you suggest? Does it really matter if you have a tread warranty with the way tires wear on this truck? I plan on just going back with 275/55/20s.

I have cheap steel factory 16s, and have found a set of alloys from a 2003. they mounted, except for the center cap on front pushing the cover off. The alloys are 17 inch, but did not perform well at all. I thought it would shake itself to parts. Mine is a 1999 1500. Is there an adapter, or special lugs?? I would really like to have the beefier tire, and alloy rims. The result at 40 mph was scary, so I took them off. Is this an offset problem. new tire is 17 inch, 5 lug.

You will need to go to dealer & buy the right lug nut for 2003 alloys wheels. At about 4.50 each x 20 = 90.00 dollars & then they will work fine. Sorry for the good & bad news.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. The tires had been balanced, and still the problem. The lugs need to insert to the alloy. Brian

I have a 2003 Dodge 1500 California Hemi Express. I replaed the Goodyears with FIERCE ST 285-5OR20 tires. My truck has 77.000 trouble free miles. I also have BLACK American racing Cartel wheels. Truck handles great, tires wearing very little. I keep burnouts to a minimum

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 which I purchased new. I have 48,000 miles on it and I am going to purchase my third set of tires, because they wear out so fast.
I am a librarian who does not drive wildly. I started out with the factory tires...Goodyear, I think. At 22,000 miles I had buy new ones. I tried FIrestone this time. I always have the alignment done, etc. etc. Now I'm in the market for a third set. Am I the only one? And what causes it?
