I read a ton of reviews and ended up buying a set of Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo 3 for my old truck. Only had them for about 18 months before I sold that truck but they were terrific.

I'm thinking of picking up a set for my Ram. I don't really like the look of the stock 22's and 285/45R22's. (which are basically 32's) I'd prefer more sidewall in an all-terrain tread pattern. I believe 33's just fit without changing anything, so I might look for 20" wheels and maybe 285/55R20 which is a 32.5 or 305/50R20 which would be a 33 and be nice and meaty.

My stock size is a p rated true 33" tire. Might be worth looking at.

Light weight. Low cost. 20" whwel Bigger tire.

cost isn't really an issue, I actually really liked the aforementioned revo 3s, they are available in a LT 305/50R20 and LT 285/55R20.

Why get an LT tire tho? My truck on its stock tires is nearly 18k gcwr. Why not save 20-40lbs per corner and get better mpg, be quicker and wear slower.

I'm not married to an LT rated tire obviously! I just want a good tire that would have a similar load rating to the stock tire.

No matter what I end up with if I move down to a 20" wheel it will be lighter than stock. 5th gen ram limited black editions actually have upgraded front knuckles to coat with the weight of the stock boat anchors. :)

I had the Revo 2's on my truck and when they were brand new they were decent. But once they had only a few thousand miles on them, like between 5k and 10k they were worthless. They'd spin up in the rain like I was on ice, understeer like a bastard, and couldn't get them to bite in the snow.

It looks like they added more and deeper siping to help with cold/snow grip. The Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar that are on the truck now have done a great job all the way through their life. When this set wears out the exact same will be going back on, unless they have a new/improved version.

Edit, forgot to include that the truck is wearing its second set of those Goodyears.

nice, I guess that is something to keep in mind. That being said, my old truck had 32k on it after 9 years so.... i don't need to drive much.

Wow, you could push your truck further than that in the same amount of time, lol.

My first set of the Goodyears had a lot of highway miles on them, about 60k before I replaced them. This second set is more balanced since I have a car for doing long road trips now. Further back in the thread I measured and averaged the remaining tread depth and their current mileage. They're pricey, but so far so good.

I don't care for bridgestone tires... At all.
New truck has them stock. Normally I would replace the shit OE rubber but these look decent for at least the first winter.
