DEAR TOM AND RAY: I’m going to buy a 2014 Ram Laramie pickup. I have a choice of 17-inch or 20-inch tires. I don’t plan to drive off-road much, if at all. I do plan to drive several thousand miles around town and then perhaps 10,000 miles towing a travel trailer that weighs about 7,500 pounds. My thinking is that the 17-inch tires would weigh a lot less and so would provide better mileage around town. They also might be quieter rolling down the road.
