700 x 20 are no longer produced.
They were the standard fit on all Dodge VF 1 1/2 ton trucks.

I tried 6.50 x 20 but then the engine was revving too much at normal cruise speeds.

I then tried 7.50 x 20 tires but they are a bit of a challenge when maneuvering at low speeds.

This is the truck with the 700 x 20 fit.

Ranger, can you post some pictures of your tires or post me a PM.

Thanks,

Bart
