anyone running 35's on your stock 17's?
 
Can anyone show me your stock 17's with 35" tires? 315/70r17 is what im wanting to run just dont know if ill need the same 1/4" wheel spacer like the fellas with 20's. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks guys.

The guy I swapped bumpers with this weekend had 35" trail grapplers on aftermarket 17" wheels and he said it rubbed slightly on the fronts. He said it wasn't bad though. Stock suspension.

With aftermarket wheels the offset could have been different, or the wheel itself could have been wider... thanks for the reply

I don't have pictures at the moment. On my 2500 I have 35/12.5/17 Nitto Trail Grapplers on stock rims with a 2" levelling kit..No spacers and a little rubbing on the mud flaps.Hardly noticeable.

Does your 2500 have a straight axle up front?? My 1500 has upper ball joints that could rub on these tires, thats what im trying to figure out.

Anyone? Bump.....

I have pics of them on a 2006... But not the newer body style..
I thought my buddy did, but when I looked at the picture it was 18" Rockstars.. Sorry

Well i'm wondering if 1) The tires can go on such a narrow wheel. 2) If they will rub the upper control arm without a wheel spacer. Im sure there is someone out there that has at least tried to do this.. If not, I guess I'll be the first. And WILL post the outcome. HAHA

I am running Khumo 315/70R/17's on my 2012 Ram CC WITH factory wheels. The tire will rub the control arm at full lock, but it's that big of an issues for me. I installed a 2" leveling kit a few months ago and the tire still rubs at full lock...but again, not a big issue at all...I will be buying the same size again when I need new ones so hope that helps

autokraftgt 02-15-2013 11:07 AM

Oh, that's without a spacer too. I was considering buying a little spacer to kick the tires out a bit, and maybe resolve the little rub at full lock....but it's not high on the TO-DO LIST
