I don't know if someone has already started a thread like this, but I'm looking at some 275/65r20 tires which will be about 34". I want more sidewall to help protect the wheels. Can that large of a tire fit on the 1500's with no rubbing or clearance issues? The truck is on completely stock steel suspension, no offroad group lift.

Give this a read, you are pretty close to the tires described in this thread. Yours would be narrower so probably no rubbing

I’m running 285/60/20 Ridge Grapplers on my stock Longhorn with no lift or level. Slight rub up front on full lock turns but not that bad. I probably should trim the plastic liners in the wheel well but the rub really doesn’t bother me. I really like the tires.

Thanks for the reply, I figure there might be a small amount of rubbing but the narrower tire might help.

I like the look of that size. Do you think the slightly narrower 275 would still rub? Or is it just the height of the tire?

I’m not sure. But if you like the 285/60/20s, I wouldn’t worry about the rubbing. Again, it’s only during full lock turns like when you’re backing out of a parking spot. And you can eliminate the rub by trimming or heating up the plastic wheel liner where it it rubs. I’ve just been to lazy to do so. So I guess it doesn’t bother me that much.

I’m running 275/65/20 wrangler duratracs and they’ll slightly rub when I’m in full lock in reverse, but I have the off-road package. Every truck measures different though. My ground to fender was 37” front and 39” rear, so if yours is taller you might not get any rub

Good looking truck. I like the blue and your tires fill up the wheel wells really well. These trucks are so big, I think they look better with larger tires. But that’s just me. And I did lose about 1 to 1.5 MPGs with the Ridge Grapplers.
