15004x4 is on a distinguished road
Default NEED HELP! Need new wheels (& tires)

Hey everyone... so the time has finally come for me to replace my tires and I need some advice. I have researched tires and wheels for the better part of the last year and I'm struggling to find the right tire/wheel combination for what I need/want. I currently run stock 275/60-20's on my leveled '07 1500 4x4 QC. I no longer want the big 'ole 20" chrome clad bling-bling wheels. I've also found that the tires that fit this size wheel are significantly more expensive and always seem to fall into the highway/performance tread category. I need to change my Ram from a street/highway cruiser to more of a true 4x4. It's not uncommon for me to drive in steep, muddy, snowy conditions up in the mountains & I was looking to drop down to an 18x9 wheel for the purpose of having more tread options as well as a less expensive tire. I would also prefer a black finish on the wheels. Now here's what I think the biggest problem is.... the size tire I want to fit on new 18x9 wheels. I would REALLY like to keep things at the 33" tire size. I'd also like to keep any offset as close to factory as possible. I don't want my tires sticking way out from the fenders. Also, I have leveled out the front end with a set of Bilsteins so I have a little more room up front. THANKS!!!!!

Ya dropping down to an 18" or even a 17" wheel would be fine. The tires get cheaper! I dropped to a 17".

stock offset is +19. so stay around a +12 at minimum and you should be happy with the "stance" or lack thereof.

With a level you should be able to fit a 33x12.5 tire..and that'll give you plenty of options. Toyo, Nitto, General, Federal, MIckey Thompson... all have off road tires in these sizes
