Question New truck, want big tires!!!

Hey all,

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 hemi engine... I'm wanting to put some bigger cool tires on it. Like those off road, all terrain type?

Since I'll be keeping this truck for a good while, I want to get ensure it looks great. I plan on getting a bedliner sprayed on it too.


Any advice on where or how to start? I've never owned a truck before.

How big do you want to go?
To fit larger tires (and to make them look good) you need to first level/body lift/ or full on suspension lift.
Read around the forumz, once you see what you like. Youll know

I would look around the forum. I havent seen many trucks that weren't either lifted or lowered. I personally just leveled my rear end (lowered it by 2 inches), but im also a 2wd. All the options are your call but i would look around see what you like then post some pics and share with everyone

I'd say that's a good start.
But why 4" over 6"
There is really only a 1"-1.5" difference depending on lift brand

Question is. How much are you willing to pay and how big do you want to go?

i just did the same type of lift and tires on my truck that you are thinking of. as this is the first truck i have ever owned i was beating my brain trying to figure out what would look good and all that stuff. like others said look around and you will get ideas. here is how mine turned out.
