I am running the 275/65/20 with out a leveling kit and I do not have air ride either. I only have about 500 miles on them so far with on road use only and I have not had them rub yet. I will hope to get some wheeling time in soon but work has me tied down a the moment. Enjoy the pics. Tires 2.jpg Tires 3.jpg

I need some clarification on how the 275/65/20 tire will affect my odometer being that I'm on a lease?
If I'm understanding my wheel calculator correctly I should see a decrease in mileage traveled on my odometer by going with a taller sidewall Revs per mile 611.6 (275/60/20) vs 591.8 (275/65/20)

My 2016 ED came stock with 275/65-R20. Is this not common?

that is not a stock tire size option. did you buy a dealer modified new ram? did it come with different wheels and tires?

The dealer can adjust the pinon factor in like 3 minutes. Just ask them to do it when getting the tires mounted. I get mine changed every time I switch from winter to summer tires and vice versa.

So does it affect odometer adversely or positively?

Thanks littleMrHolmes... for the pics. I went ahead and no issues so far other than looking pretty bad ass! Lol

Although mileage will reduce...perhaps it is still a fair measure of the wear on the vehicle but it is measuring the number of times the tire is rotating, regardless.
