    I have a 2015 Ram 2500 with 285/60R20 tires from the factory. When I go to replace the junk Firestone tires that came on the truck I was thinking about bumping to a 305/55R20. Does anyone know of this size tire will rub on the new Rams?

    Put a leveling kit on the front. You won't have to worry about rubbing and it makes the truck ride even/improves the look. That being said, I just replaced my BFG AT KO's with Cooper Discover AT3's and really like them so far. best o luck

    Be careful about bumping down in sidewall size if you do any towing or hauling. That's already a heavy rig and smaller sidewall profile will handle less weight if I'm not mistaken.

    Discount Tire is who I went through. Bought the Cooper ATP tires.
    Love them; have about 50,000 miles on the so far with plenty of life left

    What is the make, model, and year of your truck? Thanks. I'm running Cooper Discover/S 255/85/16 size, but I don't think I will get that kind of mileage out of my skins.
