I was wondering what the biggest tires would be to fit on an R/T with 20's . Im looking to put 295/50/20's on the back and 265/50/20's on the front but im scared they will rub. My dad has them on his durango but the R/T is much lower. What do you think, will they rub?¿? Post pics of tire sizes on 20s for r/t's if you have any.

295/50/20= 31.7 inches and 11.8 wide
265/50/20= 30.6 inches and 10.6 wide :confused:

Those tires are really huge. The factory R/T tire (255/55-17) is only 28.04" in diameter and 10" wide, going to those tires will probably rub pretty hard in the bumps. At a minimum you'd hate the performance, making your driveline tire 3.7" larger than stock will seriously downgrade your gear ratio and throw your speedometer off by a considerable margin.

Whenever possible you want to try to keep the tire diameter as close as you can to the factory size.

I have 265/60/18's on my truck. that is 30.5 tall 10.6 wide. I have a complete R/T suspension on my truck, and I think it looks perfect.



I'd say get those 265/50/20's.... that'll do you just fine.

Well, I finally found out... These tires do fit. they actually fit perfectly. the front tires hit the wheelwell a little bit but i pulled the front of the wheel well forward about an inch and tied it to the bumper with metal wire... YOU CANT SEE IT DONT WORRY. I wish the tires were smaller profile but oh well. Well tell me what you think. www.cardomain.com/id/98kotart My picture is too big to upload so you have to click here. :dammit:
