Default Finally leveled with new tires/wheels

I got my 2011 Ram back in June and was stoked but I looked pretty weak when I first got it, huge rake, looked very 2wd. I knew it need to be leveled and get some good snow tires (i live in the mountains). So I finally got the new tires and wheels, Duratrac 315/70/17 on 17x9 (12mm offset) RockCrawlers. I have Bilstein 5100 in the front maxed out (2.75"), and Firestone Coilrite airbags in the back with a heavy duty rear coil spring.

So far the ride quality is great, no complains, tires aren't loud or anything. No rubbing at full lock either which is really nice (thanks Brandon for the rim specs) that offset is pretty rad, might need to get some fender flares though... be chucking snow and rocks all down the side of the truck in winter for sure.

I snapped these after I got home the other day, driveway is a bit uphill, I'll try to get a couple more with the front stance too.





I got so much great info off this board, thanks guys!

Nice man! Looks good! It's crazy how much a set of wheels and tires can change the look of a truck.

Also, in your original post you listed your wheel spec as 12mm offset. Did you mean to put -12mm??

ooops, , -12mm offset brandon. typo!

and yeah, tires make such a huge difference! its crazy, i had it levelled with stock tires on for the past month and half and was stoked to get rid of the rake but the new tires make it look like a whole 'nother truck. haha.

brandon, you haven't been pulled over yet cause of your tires sticking out yet have you? a few of my friends that have around whistler/squamish and had to put flares on. i think i might closer to winter anyways, just cause of the snow and all the shit on they put on the roads up here. just curious if the cops have called you out on it yet.

now i just gotta wait until december until i can load my snowmobile into it and put it to work!

off topic but this just went up yesterday, its what I've been working on for the last year.

Nope, haven't had any trouble yet. Even going through a few ros cops haven't seemed to care. But it only takes one dink cop to make you put them on, that's the problem. I'm hoping I'll get away with it the way it is because I like the clean look without flares better. But if it comes down to it I'll put OEM 2500 flares on it.
