Question....I am looking to get some factory 20's in place of my 17 inch steel wheels(265/70/17). The wheels i am trading for have 275/60/20 tires on them now.

I understand the the 275/60/20 came on the 4x4's and the 275/55/20 comes on the 2WD Rams.

My truck is 2WD, will i be able to fit the 275/60/20's on my ride or will i have to buy the shorter 275/55/20's right away?

Thanks for the help.

They were stock on my 04 truck, should fit without problems.

The Big Horn you have is a 2wd, but the Big Horns sit higher than my regular 4x2....correct? I am still doubting if they will fit on my 2002 4x2.
I don't know if the 4x2 Big Horn sits any higher. Here's two pic of my truck, the top is a stock height and the bottom is with the rear lowered 2.5", both have the 275/60R20's.

The 275/60r20"s will fit fine on your ride. They didn't alter the height due to packages such as BigHorn etc. They did use the smaller size on the '02s and '03s as Keven stated, now all 20"s come with the larger size regardless of 2wd/4wd. But you will want them to recalibrate your speedo, since these tires are taller than your current tire set-up.

PS - Here are a few pics of my truck, lowered and stock height with the factory 275/60r20"s

Wow, that's great to know. I rolled a 275/60/20 out and propped it up next to my front wheel, it just looked tight. But if it works, great.

Thanks for all the help.

Yeah, it may look big. But one thing to keep in mind is that your tires will compress some when they are mounted to the truck. 5,000 plus lbs on them will tend to do that. :D
