Is my Truck too big?

I have a 2014 Ram 2500 with 20" tires. My question is whether the tires are too big for a 5er?

Mine is on the left.

All depends on what hitch you get.And if you can adjust the pin box.
I Had a Gmc 2500 with 8" lift and 35" tires on 17 rims and was good ..

Hook it up , check bed rail clearance , make sure your tires have the proper load rating , and make sure your 5er isn't too un level. You don't want to carry too much weight on one axle.

20" tires aren't necessarily bigger in diameter.

20" tires are usually a lower side profile that will equate to a smaller diameter wheel with a taller sidewall.

Whats the weight rating on those tires? That could be an issue.

You should be okay unless you have something other than stock. My F350 came stock with 20 inch tires. The fifth wheel sits perfectly level and there is plenty of clearance between the bed rails.

I think he means 20" rims. My former 2500 HD came with 20's. It was fine.

I also have an F350 with 20 inchers. 5r sits just about perfectly level with 9 inches of bed rail clearance.
