Default tire sizing

I have the goodyear wrangler hp's aswell, terrible tire. I had 2 different tires go at 46 000 because of blown belts. Would not recomend them to anyone. Does anyone know what is that largest tire that u can put on the stock 20's? I was going to get 305/55/20 nitto terra grapplers but i just ordered tortion keys to give me an extra 2.5 inches in the front end. Does anyone know if 325/60/20's will go on with the 2.5 inches of lift without rubbing?

I can't find them now and they're not on the discount website - usually if anyone has them then they're on the website.

Just a reminder get alignment when you install new tires. Know a belt coming apart in the tire is not from the alignment but cupped and tire wear can be. Also if you don't rotate the tires every 6000 miles that will help with tire cupping and tire last a lot longer.

Hi everyone - I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Quad Cab. Came OEM with the Goodyear Wrangler HP's (275/60/R20). The truck just rolled 61,000-miles and my first tire separated. The tread is almost non-existant on the othe 3 tires, but I'm pretty happy with them lasting 61k and 8 years.

I'm shopping around for a new set, and have priced out the Wrangler HP's. I was planning on buying the same because they lasted so long (all highway driving, all season, I tow a 3500-lb fiberglass boat up wet ramps all summer), but I also rotate them regularly.

However, reading through this thread, it looks like I was one of the lucky ones. I'm still leaning towards the OEM tires, but I'm curious about some of the other recommendations I've seen here. Some people listed the Cooper Zeons, but in 2009, not many people had put many miles on these yet.

I don't do much (not any really) off-roading, and I don't care how "agressive" my tires look. I want a tire that rides well on pavement, minimal road noise, and will wear well and last 50K plus.

Any insights are appreciated!

46K on my original HP's and no problems yet. About 1/2 tread or better. Still no problems driving 70+ in heavy rains.

40k on mine and they are just about done for. I have not had any weird issues with cupping or whatever. In fact they wore pretty well for me. The kicker for me was the **** traction they seem to get. There are times I can barely touch the throttle in 3rd gear or lower because the rear starts to let go..

Idk what my next tire will be probably gonna go with the TOYO open country's but we shall see
