Anyway, got my 2018 3500 (Laramie SRW) a week or so ago and got some new Helo 879's (20x9 + 18mm). Also got some Galdiator QR900 MTs (35x12.5x20).



Here's a couple pics of the truck as it sits right now (showing side and how much the stock tires don't stick out) and the wheels/tires. I'll be dropping it off Wednesday for install. I'll post some after pics later that day or Thursday (weather and light depending).

OK, wheels and tires are on! Props to the fellas at Heisley Tire in Mentor, Ohio for doing a great job Road Force and Match balancing them. No vibrations at 80mph!

Overall, very happy with them. I think it gives the truck just the right level of attitude adjustment and the wheels have a cool look to them. The stance is much more aggressive but not overdone IMO. The tries whine a little but nothing excessive.

Only issue was slight rub on drivers side rear front wheel well on that nub that all RAMs have (see next post for pic). As someone else did, I used a heat gun to soften that rubber and pushed it in to take away the corner and now, no rubbing anywhere. This is stock suspension with 34.6" tires on 20" rims. No control arm rubbing either. Suspension work not required but I'll probably add a 2" level, track bar (Carli) and 1" lift block in the Spring along with a Steering stabilizer/brace and some Fox shocks. BakFlip cover (X4) on its way as we speak.

Here's some after shots. While I was waiting for the wheels and tires to be mounted/balanced I also added some ICI Magnum Steps. Had these on my 2500 and like them. They were much more difficult to install this time around than I remember but I took the OEM steps off my 2500 which helped with having some mounting hardware present to begin with. Didn't have that this time.

Lemme know what you think.

I have the same wheels. Excellent choice for a white truck

BakFlip Revolver X4 cover and tint to match rear added. All done for now. Will revisit suspension needs in Spring.
I love those steps! Put them on my rig as well and painted the step insert to match the factory BAP rim inserts I painted red as well. I'd upload pics but nothing seems to work anymore for uploading

Nice! yeah, I had the steps on my 2500 as well. PITA putting them on the 3500 but worth it.
