Whether you are into offroading, drag racing or just making your Ram look great, there is a good chance that you have at least considered swapping to aftermarket wheels. The problem is that with so many wheel companies out there – some of which offer little help on what will and wont fit on your truck – it can be a headache to figure out what size you can go to when looking to deviate from the stock size.
Luckily, our resident Ram guru dirtydog put together a great piece in the 3rd generation Dodge Ram section detailing what wheels will fit the various Ram 1500 trucks (model year, rear wheel drive or four wheel drive). He also includes notes as to what kind of body or suspension lift will be needed to safely fit bigger wheel/tire packages on the 2002-2008 Dodge Ram. Finally, this thread explains how tire sizes are calculated so you can figure out the height and width of your tires when going to a bigger or small tire option.
After dirtydog has provided a ton of information on wheel and tire fitment for the 3rd generation Ram 1500, there are six pages of discussion on the topic so if you are looking to put some new shoes on your ride and you have some questions on how big you can go – this is the thread for you!
