Determine Your Ram 1500 Tire Size

Depending on the size of the wheels and which configuration and trim level you drive, the Ram 1500 tire size will vary. Luckily, you can quickly determine what size tires your truck has. The tire size can be found either on the sidewall of the tires themselves or on the Tire and Loading Information Placard.

This placard, which is located on the driver's side door panel, gives you information like the number of people that can be carried in the vehicle, the pressure your tires should be at, and the size of the tires that are specifically designed for your Ram 1500.


Meaning of Tire Size

When you identify your tire size, you will see a variety of numbers and letters together that may seem random, but each represents an important aspect of your tires.

  • Some of the numbers will represent the width from one sidewall to the other, while others identify the wheel diameter and the height in relation to its width. 
  • These figures are important, since they are the measurements needed to make sure your next set of tires fit your wheels properly.
  • Other numbers and letters let you know more about the performance of your tires. Two figures that are important to know are the Load Index and Speed Rating. 
  • The last number is your Load Index, which will let you know how much weight your tires safely can handle. You can find this info on the Load Index Chart. 
  • The last letter is your Speed Rating. Match this up to the Speed Rating Chart to see the maximum speed your tires can handle.
