Default 35's with 2.5" level

I been looking at a 2.5" level kit for my 97 1500. The question is can you run 35's with no clearence probs or rubbing? The kit is from Hell Bent Steel

You need to make sure you don't need wheel spacers to run 35's with 2" of lift.

Some trucks I've seen with 35's got away with it with spacers and a little trimming at the front of the front wheel well openings.

Some can't get away with 35's with just two inches of lift.

Most every BR Ram I've seen needs at least 3" of lift and 4" seems to work better to clear 35's.

I got a 4 inch body lift and my 35s just barely clear the front bumper when turning.
