Need tire info

I have a 2014 Limited EcoDiesel that I have lowered 1/2 and I just bought some 20x9 SRT reps. I know that I can put the 265/50-20 on it but I was wanting some different options. Wider and shorter tire or just stay with the size that's on it?

Re: Need tire info

Do you have a picture? I'm more of a visual kind of person.

Yes. I wish it would've gone a little lower.

Re: Need tire info

Mine is a diesel. They told me that it may not lower it as much in the back due to the heavier engine. The ride didn't change any. I had load leveling shocks that I had to swap out for standard shocks. Still no change in ride quality.

Re: Need tire info

They are stock shock from the dealership. They were a little cheaper than aftermarket. You'll have to change the mounts too.
