Maybe when I get new tires I can find some low miles pull-offs from someone who got big mud tires...

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.
