The stock 17" tire is 265/70-17. For a few years they were running a 275/70-17... but it was a bastard size, and crazy expensive.

As far as I know... the 1500 isn't getting an 18" wheel stock. That's a 2500 option. BUT... there is a 22", that can be ordered.

Right now, there is only 1..(O N E) LT option in the 20" size, that I can find, and those are Nitto Dura Grapplers. They are NOT cheap. I would have to see what my options are when the time comes.

Stock tires are the Wrangler SR-A:
P265/70R17, 2535 load, 44 psi, 37 lbs weight, 31.7" dia, 10.7" width, 660 revs/mi
P275/60R20, 2601 load, 44 psi, 40 lbs weight, 33.0" dia, 11.0" width, 634 revs/mi

There are many LT tires in these dimensions although they will add about 9-13 lbs per tire.

The stock wheels are 17x7 or 20x9 aluminum with plastic chrome cladding. A 20" wheel weighs about 35 lbs or 7 lbs more than the 17".

Don't know about 18" or 22" but they would probably be proportional.

Same tires as my F250s at work. One has Michelin AT/2, one Goodyear Wrangler AT/S, and two have General Grabber HTS which is a straight highway tire. All LT275/65/20

Firestone
General
goodyear
Toyo
Michelin
BFGoogrich
Nitto
Dick Cepek

Falken

Bolded ones I've only seen in All Terrian. You usually have to check your vendor some only stock certain ones or even list them on their website and they are usually AT for LT tires but they can special order. For example I bought the General Grabbers at Discount Tire but they don't list them on their website I didn't know they even carried them in that size till I talked to a guy in store about them and he had to special order.

The Ram 1500 tires are 275/60R20. 65s may work, but will be a lil taller. I am actually thinking 18s with aftermarket wheels.

For real? that's a bastard size. Switch to 275/65 and be done with it.

Thats like the 17s on Ford 245/75/17. Ford is the only one to use that size in a truck other than an older Nissan frontier or something. Switched them all over to 265/70 even though it's a bigger tire they are $10-$20 cheaper than the 245/75 because there are more around.

I plan on going with the BFG 275/65R20E All Terrain TA/KO. 34.1" tall 610 revolutions per mile. That's why I ordered the 3.92 gearing!

I wish the 17's were wider. I don't like big rims. I want to have as much rubber as possible. I want to run 34 or 35 inch tires on 17's.

i currently own a 2004 Ram 1500 with 20s. Replacement tires have been pricey to say the least which is why I ordered my new Bighorn with the 17s.

@skiffman - exactly why i am determined to get rid of the 20's on my bighorn when it shows up. i still have nightmares from replacing my tundra's 20" wheels with some Michelin LTX's.... yuck. no reason for the 20"s at all...if they were coming from Ram with at least an "LT" 20, maybe i could leave them... but nothing "good" about a P rated 20" tire on a 1/2T truck...nothing i say! :)

The 20s on my 04 dodge ram 1500 never rode good ( probably a suspension issue). I special ordered my 2014 ram 1500 diesel with 17s to avoid the same issue.
