Dodge Ram Pickup 1500, Truck

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
#10 of 28 Excessive tire wear
Feb 27, 2008 (2:00 pm)
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?
#11 of 28 Tire Size Question or Will they Fit?

My Question is can I put or will they fit with out doing anything 315 70 R17 tires on it?

I want to know if I can swap 265/75 16s for 285/75 16s without having to swap rims. The stock rims are 16x7, but the specs for 285s call for 16x 7.5" rims. Is this going to be ok if I stay with the rims I have?

One way to check is go to tirerack.com. They have a tire calculator so you can see the size difference, and they also list all sizes that will fit your truck.
#14 of 28 Moving down from 33" tires
Jun 23, 2008 (3:52 pm)
Looking at used Ram 1500`s with 5.2l 4x4 club cabs. I found one with 33x12.5R15 Trxus M/T tire which with the current gas prices would have to go (looks sweet though). I don`t have nor does the used car dealer have info on the build. If you where going from stock to this size tire would a gear ratio change have to be done? If so and assuming (hate that word) it was done correctly, would there be a problem dropping down to 31`s without a gear change? I know with out knowing the gearing , it is at best a guess, but it is a nice truck at the right price.

17s are standard equipment on that truck. As long as you have the proper offset in the wheel, you'll be fine clearing the brakes. If you can find some used factory 17-inch wheels, you'll be all set.

I got the Firestone Destination AT 245 65 17's and I love 'em. My truck is my daily driver and I've had the tires for a year now with no signs of wear. This is my first 2 wheel drive truck I've had so my first winter with the stock tires was a nightmare. I bought these tires from Tirerack.com because they were rated very good in all categories. Plus, they weren't very expensive at all! I'll buy them again, but it doesn't look like that will be anytime soon.
