Do those Trail Grappler MTs cause much road noise?

I an running 295/70R17 Toyo Open Country MT on my 2011 with no problems whatsoever. Also I deal with snow and ice all the time being I live in Alaska. They have never failed me. Great highway travel with mild road noise. Also wear life is pretty good. My previous set lasted over 60K miles doing stuff I probably shouldn't have been doing. Hope this helps.

Before I leveled my truck - 285 75r 18 BFG KM2s on Rockstar rims rubbed slightly in the driver side wheel well. A heavy duty (black zip tie) took care of the problem. I simply drilled two small holes at the bottom of the wheel well and pulled it back about an inch and took care of everything. I have sinced leveled the truck - not because of the tires, but to counter the sag from my Ranch Hand bumper. Hope this helps.

Keep researching and you'll find what you're looking for. Look over on dodge talk for more info as well.
Hey did these fit for you or did they end up rubbing? What rims did you get, and whats the offset you ended up with? Consdiering the same tires as well! Else I will go with 275/65/20!

I have a similar question and could not find the answer I was looking for in the what wheel will fit thread.I have a 2011 Laramie 3500 crew and want to upgrade the wheels and tires.I don't want to do any mods other than wheels and tires and don't want any rubbing.I want to go with an 18" rim with Nitto E rated Terra grappler AT'S. I would like to run a 275/70/18 tire my question is what offset do I need so there will be no rubbing??My truck is admittedly a pavement princess who's only purpose is to pull our boat, haul a camper and tow our enclosed Harley trailer.Here is a pic of the truck and the wheels I want to use any help would be much appreciated

i dont have a calculator in front of me and dont want to look up the size of that tire so can you give a standard size for that tire? I have 34x11 terra grapplers on a 20" wheel with zero rubbing. The Wheel is either -18mm or +18mm and sits nicely in the wheel well. Ive got 55k miles on them and will probably put new ones on in about 10k or so miles and will go up to 35's.

2010 2500 Black cclb, 4x4 auto, 4.10. 35.5x12x20 Nitto Trails. 2.5 levelling, airbags. 4"flopro straight , MM, H&S EGR and cooler delete. updated tune ATT. ARP2000's

I have 37x 12.5r17s on my 03 ram dually. The only rub I got w/ no mods was on the plastic inner fender and sway bar. And that's only cuz my hankooks have the sidewall lugs. So 35x12.5 would clear both by an inch about. Or 315x70 is equivalent. Also some tire shops will let u test fit different sizes, that's how I determined what size I wanted.
