Default Eyeballing The McGaughys 2/4.5 Deluxe Lowering Kit

I have made the decision to lower my 2007 Ram 1500.

The main reason I want to lower it is because, as much as I love the Ram, it sits way to high for a 2 wheel drive. For me anyway.

But since I made the decision to lower it, I have researched it and I have really grown to like the look of the lowered Ram.

I think I have settled on the McGaughys 2/4.5 Deluxe Lowering Kit. This is a picture of the EXACT look I'm going for, and this is the same color and body style of my truck.



I do have several questions though.

First of all will I be able to leave the stock wheels and tires on temporarily until I upgrade? Currently I have those 20" wheels with 275 60 R20.

When I decide on wheels and tires, what size should I go with? Should I upgrade to 22" and if so what size tire?

Also, I love the newer model RT rims, will they fit a 2007 and if not does anyone know of something aftermarket that is similar?

These are the wheels I'm talking about.



Any advice and input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Question Lowering of 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab and I want to lower the rear. My leaf springs are on top of my axle and I am considering putting them underneath. Would this be a good idea or not? Thanks.

Sorry so late answering this: Yes, those wheels will fit. Second, third, and fourth gen wheels are all 5x5.5.
