Thinking about ordering a 2020 Ram 1500 Limited with the off-road group in the near future.
Can I replace the stock 20" wheels fitted with 275/55/R20 tires with 18" wheels fitted with 275/65/R18 tires?
Would I need any lift/leveling to fit this? will the brake rotors and pads fit properly in the 18" wheels?
Any insights and advice greatly appreciated.

18" ram wheels will fit, as well as that tire size you mentioned. No level or lift necessary

Hombres, the OP should be careful if not using an OEM 18” wheel as tolerances are tight, correct? I’ve seen others mention difficulties clearing the brakes with aftermarket 18s.

HEY BRO. NO YOU CAN NOT!!!

Limiteds can ONLY use 22 or 20 inch wheels. No matter if they are OEM or not. Please do research before you listen to any of these guys that say yes. They truly don’t know. And will steer you the wrong way bc it’s not theirs and they aren’t the ones that has to pay to fix any issues. Good place to get info, but most guys will tell you anything.

I’m trying to locate the poster who had the dealership switch out his wheels off his lLimited to the 18” oem wheels as he wanted more sidewall. He has a white Limited with 18” wheels on his.

You have any evidence to back this up? The only reason 20"+ wheels would be 'required' on a Limited is if something was too big to fit with a smaller wheel (usually the brakes). As far as I've seen there are zero differences in brakes/hubs/etc that would cause clearance issues on any 1500 variant so there is no reason any OEM wheel wouldn't fit. Aftermarket wheels are a whole other subject.
