Leveling Kit Tires?
I'm probably an idiot because i cannot find the post on here but i will ask anyhow.

I put on a Rough Country Leveling kit (2 1/2'' lift) into my 2011 Ram 1500 Sport.

Ive been searching all over the place to get aggressive off road tires for my truck. all my buddys have the BF Goodrich tires and i do prefer to stay away from them just so i can be different, but if they are the only good ones, i will take them. Im trying to keep my stock 20" rims; i like the look of them and if needed i will buy wheel spacers. Im looking for an All-Terrain tire with an aggressive look. Or if anyone also knows what specs ill need the new tires to be that would be great (in this case obviously the width of the tire wont change but the height of it will due to the lift kit i put in..... right?)

Much appreciated. :4-dontknow::smileup::smileup:

A lot of aggressive tires out there man...

Goodyear Duratracs
Nitto trail grapplers
Toyo all terrain II
Cooper makes a A/T i think
Micky Thompsons

With the stock wheels and that level you can fit a 35x12.5x20 tire...but only with a 1/4" spacer

I have Hankook Dynapros with my 2 1/2" kit. They look good, ride nice, and have 22,000 miles on them and they look like new.

I'm running 35x12.5 Toyo MT's on 20x9 Fuel Hostage wheels with a 2.5" level. There's a link to my install thread in my signature below with lots of pictures if you're interested.

As gonefishin776 said you can fit up to a 35x12.5 tire on the stock 20's with a 1/4" spacer. If you want to stay with an AT tire and not an MT check out the Toyo AT2's. They're a really nice aggressive looking AT tire. They're the only AT tire I would consider...

Thanks guys, can I also use 1.5" spacers?

I'm assuming you're talking about wheel spacers. You could but you might run into some issues with rubbing. I'm running 20x9 -12 offset wheels with 35x12.5's and I did rub before I did any modifications. With the stock 20x9 wheels and a 1.5" spacer you are essentially at -19 offset so you would have more issues with rubbing on the inner fender.

So my choices are 1.5" spacers with 33's or 1/4" with 35's

brandonjansen 06-11-2013 07:20 PM

Definitely go with the 35's! You won't regret it. They fill up the wheel well so much nicer and give you more height as well. Plus with the 1/4" spacers and a wider tire you will be sticking out more to give you a nice stance.

No I have no photos. I will post before and after photos. I just ordered my .25" spacers from rough country. I plan on goin with 35x12.50x20 Toyo a/t II tires. Thank you everyone for you're help.

Hey won't these tires with the 1/4" spacers hit the control arms?
