What Size RAM Wheels Should I Choose?


That's a question that many buyers have when they're exploring new RAM Trucks, and today, Russ Darrow Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of West Bend has some information to help you through your decision process.

So, how exactly does one decide between a 17-inch argent steel wheel and a 17-inch aluminum wheel? Well, it depends on what kinds of activities you plan on doing in your pickup. For example, if you plan on using your truck for working and traveling, you should choose the aluminum wheel. This lightweight wheel is strong and resistant to corrosion. They're not recommended for off-roading or towing heavy loads, and they're available on RAM 2500 and 3500 dual rear wheel trucks, as well as Tradesmen, Outdoorsman, and SLT trim levels. The 18-inch steel wheel offers the same benefits on a larger scale.

The 17-inch argent steel wheels are great for off-roading and hauling heavy loads. They come with improve malleability and strength to prevent chipping and resist bending and wobble. Their small size offers plenty of room for big off-road tires, and they're the real "workhorse" of the RAM wheel lineup.

If you want to make a bold statement, there's really no better choice than RAM 20-inch aluminum wheels. However, they can have some impact on ride quality, performance and handling. RAM has downplayed this effect with its four-corner air suspension on the RAM 1500, making the difference between 20-inch and smaller wheels almost nonexistent.
