Can you please offer other sizes of your TRAIL GRAPPLER tire to fit our trucks without the need of a lift/leveling kit.

Specifically-more sizes in the 20" variation to fit our standard OEM wheels.

I've seen Nitto advertise on here and I've emailed them but never received an answer.

LT295/55R20

You won't need a lift with that size. They're only 32.9'' tall and stock come with 33''

I think an M/T tire would like kind of out of place on a truck with 3 inches of rake. Why not add a 2 inch level get some 295/60/20, those are approved for your rims.

A) Because I don't want to spend the money on a level
B) If kids come along it'll be hard for momma to load them in the truck with a carseat
C) if I did do a lift in the future-I'd look at a 4" lift instead of just a level.

they make a 305/55 R20 that will fit your stock wheels, only thing you would need with those is a 1/4 inch spacer so you wont rub on your Upper Control Arm. and honestly you dont absolutely need the spacer, buddy of mine has these on his truck and they just barely rub at full crank

OR

get the 305/55's with the spacer and you could level your truck by dropping the back to get rid of the ridiculous rake.

A) They are about $100 bucks and your tires are gunna cost you about 10 times that
B) A level will hardly make a difference and the kids will be driving that truck before you know it
C) If you do a lift in the future you can sell the spacers for probably $50 or so

If you're worried about the price of a level kit, you probably shouldn't have expenses i mean kids

And not to be rude, but if a leveling kit will make it difficult to get into a truck then you may be too short (same goes for the wifey). Putting a child in a truck certainly isn't a difficult thing. Perhaps being 6'5" I am unaware of the woes of the vertically challenged. But to be able to fit meatier tires, a simple leveling kit is well worth any entering and exiting acrobatics.

clearly I am underinformed.

When I inquired about this at the local shop he quoted 350-400 for parts and labor to install a level kit. I don't even know what I need for this endeavor.

please advise where I can find the parts for $100.00 and what the install (ballpark) would run?

honestly the rake doesn't bother me so I'm not looking to drop a bunch of cash on something that isn't an issue to me. Just looking for some sweet tires that I can fit on my truck.

So, why would I spend 350-400 on something that isn't an issue/concern to me then to spend "10 times that" on tires when all I'm looking for is the tires at this point?

Are you saying if I go with a level kit then I could buy these tires at a different size (cheaper)?

Obviously I don't know all there is to know about this, I just like the trail grapplers and would like to be able to swap them out with my existing setup.

Another guy above directed me to a specific size and advised I'd have to get spacers. That seems much more simple to me.

Others have echoed your recommendation so I am sincerely anxious to hear it explained further.

2.5" 09-11 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Front Strut Lift Spacers for $89.95 by top guns customz?

That's it???

Doesn't look that difficult if you have a jack and a buddy to come help.

This ad says it does not affect ride quality. Is that true?

Thanks candy.

Wordity word word.
Well said.
Thought you guys would agree :thatfunny

As for the spacers idk about change in ride bc i have aftermarket leveling struts and the ride changed but for the better! I have a 2" level and im running Nitto Trails in 295/70/17's which is a 33.5 inch tire and i think they look perfect! Paid $258 a tire at Discount Tire... they will price match the cheapest price you can find on the internet (Hint: ebay)! Go to Nitto's website and look at the tires available and their specs then go from there! With a 2.5 inch level you can fit up to 35's but i wouldnt suggest those. Looks like they have a LT295/55R20 that is 32.91 inches in diameter! Dont forget tires for 20" rims are stupid expensive :bawl:
