Biggest tire and rim on leveled 2009 ram 2500
Hey i have an 09 ram 2500. Im going to put a leveling kit on the front! i have stock 17's but i want to run 18's or 20's.! What tire size should i run 33's or 35's

Here's what 35's on stock rims look like with a leveling kit:

and 18's with 35's w/ a leveling kit:

Yea I would say look into some 35s for your 2500. The 2500 is a couple inches higher then the stock 1500 which would make a leveling kit on a 2500 like a 4" lift on a 1500 (Close numbers but not exact)

On the black truck the front is still lower than the back even with the leveling kit? Is there any way to lower the back to make it even with the front? Also what size rims should i look at? 9 inch 9.5 10 what? What size tire should i get i want to keep my 275 width!! Can i run a 20 inch rim?

Yea you can run a 28" rim if you want haha. I dont think in a 35" tire you can get such a small width. You have to at least go with a 12.5" wide tire to look good on such a big truck. I say look into a 35x12.5x20 tire then if you want. You have a large variety of different tires to choose from. If you want to keep the cost down then look into 18s. There unfortunatly is a bigger price difference when you start getting a larger rim and tire combo. I think the 20s would look really good.

If you are going to go with a 12.5" wide tire then try and get a 10" wide rim. Your tires will fit nicer with the wider rim. You will be able to fit a 12.5" on a 9" wide rim but you will have less "ballooning" with the 10". Anything larger then 12.5" you will have to go at least 10"

how do i make my truck the same height in the front and the back?? Will i loose much power going to a 35 inch tire

2009ram2500 01-13-2011 03:22 AM

Ok i already bought a set of 20x10 inch rims! Now which tires should i get? 35's or 33's? I have leveling kit for the front end on its way! I want to keep as much power as i can. Will the 33's help fill the fenders up? Please help.. 33's or 35's. I do mostly highway driving

2009ram2500 01-13-2011 03:35 AM

the rims i ordered are 20x10 18mm offset 5.71 backspacing.

33's would look tiny IMO, I would go 35's. I already posted what 35's look like with a leveling kit. What size leveling kit did you get? The 3" lift from TGC would probably make the front end more level than the 2" leveling kit in the pictures above. The downside is you would need new shocks, but you'd probably have the front end more level.
