Default 35" tires on stock 20" rims.

I'm sure this question has been brought up a lot but i can't seem to find an exact answer. I have a 2011 Ram 1500. I put a Rough Country 2.5" leveling kit and 1.25" body lift kit on. I would like to put 35's on but I want to keep the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]stock[/COLOR][/COLOR] rims due to the fact that i like how they look and simply cant afford tires AND rims. I am told that due to the rim's off set the 35's will rub suspension parts. Is this true? and if so, will spacers solve the problem?

Yes, you will need 1/4" spacers to clear 35's on the stock wheels.

Rough country sells 1/4 inch spacers...
do you have any pics of the truck with the 2.5" leveling kit and 1.25" body lift kit? I have the 2.5 inch level on mine already and was thinking about doing the 1.25 body lift too

What 35" tires are you looking at?

@11bighorn Thanks Ill check out rough country's spacers. I don't have any pictures yet. I have only installed the leveling kit so far. The body lift is still in the box becuase I wanted to see how the truck will look with the 35's before I installed the body lift.
@grubrunner I'm looking at the Nitto Trail Grappler M/T's. Any other recommendations?

The Toyo Open Country MT's are another option, very comparable to the Nittos. Nitto is owned by Toyo so they are essentially the same company. Here's a link to my first impression review of them on my truck:

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=141365

If you want to go a little bit cheaper Federal Couragia MT's is another option. Quite a few guys are running them now with no complaints. But they do measure smaller than the other 35x12.5 tires.

Fuel just started making their own MT's as well. Haven't really heard much about them yet but they do look very sick. I think the price point is around the same as the Nitto Trail Graps or the Toyo MT's.

I ordered a set from them a couple weeks ago. Should be in this week. The owner said they are a bit over 1/4" thick because I requested wheel and hub centric. About 3/8" he said.

I'm not sure that I would feel comfortable running those with OEM studs. A 1/4" is about the max I would run while still getting enough bite from the lug nuts. I'm surprised that nothing was mentioned to you about that..
Also I'm not sure what having a hub centric bore has to do with thickness. The only change is the bore diameter. I curious to know why a 1/4" spacer would need to be 3/8th of an inch in order to be hub centric.
