Default Need new tires

I have an 03 Ram 1500 SLT 4x4 with 94,000 miles on it. I need new tires. Right now I have a set of crappy starfire 265/70R/17's on them with stock dodge rims. I want to go bigger and wider. I'd like to go up to a 20 and get a really beefy tire. 285/70R/17 seemed to be the widest I could go without rubbing. Would I have to put a suspension lift on to accommodate bigger tires? Also how hard is it to install a suspension lift?

Yes you would need a slight lift, im not sure what is available for the dodges. But typically just a simple body lift will get you a few inches of clearance and is easy to do and keep the stock ride comfort.

I had 315/70-17 Falken Wildpeak AT on my tundra and ABSOLUTELY loved them! The were 100x's smoother, and quieter than the BFgoodrich AT i had before, and looked much better too!
