Ive got Mastercraft ATX 265-75-R16 10 ply tires on my truck. Not noisy and one hell of a grip. Plus they come with a 50k mile warranty and road hazard.

Think I paid about 850 for them all

I run Firestone TransForce AT on my 4x4 and I use Firestone TransForce HT on my 2X4! I have in may cases had 2 different brands on my trucks including the 4x4 as long as the sizes are the same on the 4x4 no problem. When run different sizes I would not recommend doing so on a 4x4 but 2x4 again no a problem larger on rear smaller on front.

My truck is a '12 model, and has 17" tires on it, 265/70R/17E to be more specific, or should I say had?

The '14 Model Laramie's have an optional 20" wheel/tire combo, and after doing some searching, I found a set of new vehicle take-offs at a tire/wheel dealer with Firestone 285/60R/20E TransForce AT's and made a deal on a swap. (Bubba likes them even BIGGER on his new truck down here) I'm happy with the deal as it cost less than what I would have paid for just a new set of tires.

I've had 20's on a tow vehicle before and they were super stable, but the tires weren't Firestone's, so we will see how well they work out. Anyway, the tire search is over for me, at least for a while, and they drive/ride nice.

In a modern Dodge truck, what has to be done to make the speedometer and odometer read correctly when the wheel size is changed?

Ken,

We had an '07 Ram at work and put 20's on it (don't ask) the dealer did a re calibration (computer) and poof! All was well .

I don't know that anything would have to be re-calibrated if I switched from 20's to 18's.
With the 20's, the sidewall is short. With the 18's, the sidewall is a little taller.
Outside diameter ends up being the same.
My Nissan Pathfinder's 16's are not as tall as my sister's 15's on an XTerra...

My speedometer read a little fast with the stock tires (31.5") and now with the 285/60/20's (33") it reads right on with the GPS. However, I don't like the overall difference in gear ratio, so I'm going to shop for some shorter E load range 20's.

The 20" wheels and shorter tires was what I was looking for, for increased stability aspect.

But I don't see any 8 or 10 ply 20's for sale.
I guess I will get the same as I already have - Bridgestone Dueler Alenza -

I imagine you will post it anyway, but I would appreciate hearing about what you find.

It's the tire circumference/diameter that matter for the speedometer/odometer, not the wheel size. In any case, the powertrain or transmission computer parameter dealing with tire size can be tweaked by a shop.

I think you missed my point.
I understand it is the circumference/diameter.
I was saying that a low profile 20 could have the same or smaller circumference/diameter than a tall sidewall 18.
I went a little further with a real life example of my 16's being smaller in circumference/diameter than my sister's 15's...

Let me be an impartial mediator.

I think you are both saying the same (correct) thing in different words. At least that is what I see when I read your posts.

Ken,
You are right! As I reread m.hony's post, we really are saying the same thing.

100,000 miles? That's quite a few miles for a truck, especially if there's much towing involved.

I got 130,000 miles on a set of Michelins on a Chevy Express 2500 with some towing.
Made a believer out of me.
That was on a work truck.
I cannot get enough miles out of a personal vehicle before the sidewalls start cracking to make the investment for the more expensive Michelins.
Most likely I will get the same Bridgestones as are currently on the Tundra- keeps that original, like new appearance as well-

My experience with Michelins hasn't been near as good. The set that I just changed out were OE Michelins, had 38,000 miles on them, and calculating by the amount of original tread, remaining tread, and calculating the miles per MM of tread, they would have gone maybe another 9,000 miles before reaching the wear bars. Not saying they are not good tires, just I don't get that many miles out of them, but about 99% of the miles I put on my truck are towing miles.
