I didn't notice any additional tire noise on the highway. They are quite smooth. We will give them a longer trial this holiday weekend, and maybe get them a bit dirty if we can.

Dodge Lift, Rims, and Tires

Hey thanks for the thread on Dodge tires and lift upgrades. I just bought a used 1996 Dodge EB and it needs new tires so I was considering a lift and new rims. Curtis you said you found rims on craigslist; anything in particular to watch for? Do Dodge Ram Truck rims fit? My impression is there is not much crossover between the Ram Truck and Ram Van? (Unlike Ford which Van and Trucks are interchangeable) So I have no idea what an easy default search would be to find rims which would fit?

$2,000 is more than I want to pay for a lift so I will probably stay stock. I’m really surprised it is that much just for a body lift? Any idea if larger tires can be put on without a lift?

I have yet to figure out if I can find out my gearing and which transmission I have which I think would dictate if larger tires are a good idea? I have a bunch of original documentation but have not seen any mention of transmission or gearing in them; any suggestions?

Does anyone ever run an airlift system? Would be awesome

If nothing else works out I’ll probably stay stock and get tires from Costco either BFGoodrich - Commercial T/A Traction $162 or Radial Long Trail T/A $130 and for the tire sale they often have. Anyone have experience with either?
