If you get a chance could you measure the height. Thanks! I just want to know what the new ride height and ground clearance would be.

Btw, it looks like the diameter of my tires (20's) are 30.5 inches and yours are 32.1 inches. I'm still curious about the height differences.
If you go to goodyears site has the detailed specs and they are a 32.1 http://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/...31201114200000
It's always best to check the specs on tires when trying to find the right tire for over sizing. Depending on the manufacturer they can very by quite a bit.

Based on that your going to .75" more ground clearence because you have to divide by 2.

I have them in the same size and they are a great tire run very smooth, have a light hum and look sexy as hell imo

I just measured my spare and it is 32.1", of course the mounted tires only measure about 31.5" because of the vehicle weight.

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

Your spare that size fits in the back but the lid sticks up a bit, is that correct? Would it close with a 265/70/18, same height but 10mm narrower? How much did the lid stick up with the 275s?
Thanks

Yes, I ended you mounting it on the outside with a Tiregate set up. The 265/70/18 would be close, I dont think the lid would fit completely flush though.

Looks great. Do you have QL (looks like an Overland)? If so, what setting are you at in the picture? Do you have any pics more down the side of the truck to see how flush the tires look?

Thanks.

Chris
