    Looks great. Bigger tires on these trucks really makes them. I still don't understand why they insist on giving us those tiny ones from the factory.

    ABES knows tires!! They are Hankook Dynapro MTs. 285/70 17. They were $160 each from a place outside Philly called Creamery Tires. Going from stock tires to these makes a big difference. BlueRam2500, I couldn't agree with you more. Everyone who saw my truck would always say the stock tires looked like little donuts. Here is a pic before I got the new tires..

    congrats on the new tires. the small non agressive stock tires do suck, even more when its a 4X4

    Are they a different size? If so have you had any speedo trouble?

    They are skins.. Basically hubcaps.. There is a place near me that sells skins that goes right over the factory rims. They only cost $90.00 for the set of 4. I'm getting Dick Cepeck DC-1 rims in May..

    I agree

    The next thing I will do to my Ram 2500 is upgrade the tires. So far I have not needed them this winter, but the tires make the truck.

    Love it! Same color as mine, and I agree, those tires and dress up covers made a huge difference!
