Default Tire and Wheel Combo

Hey I just recently purchased a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi and it currently has the 20" chrome wheels on it and I was looking for some advice on a good wheel and tire combo for this truck. would like to go to 17's with a bigger tire. any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

ok well i have the cooper zeons and they are 33'' but for the 20in wheel. great tire. if you want 35s you will need a leveling kit i believe just check the faq section on tires. there are lots of good info

Welcome to the forum. Post us up some pics of your rig when you get a chance. Also, it is always good to see another member from PA.

That is what I want to do is 17" with 35'a but I don't know what wheels to put on it. Want good quality rims that look good and last but don't cost the same as the truck, you know. I had thought before of keeping my 20's and putting Nitto tires on them because that looked kinda cool. what do you guys think? Also, Raminator, I posted a pic to my garage this AM but for some reason it doesn't show the icon by my name like it does for you guys. why is that? Thanks for the welcome guys!

you have to upload the pic to your avatar for it to show by your name. there are some people here with there factory 20s who put 35" tires on them. it does look pretty good though. if you have a 4wd, you can even crank those torsion bars and not have to buy a lift kit
