Default Help Max Tire Size

Looking to put a larger tire on my truck. I installed the 2" leveling kit on front and nothing on the back on my 2013 Ram 1500 4c4 big horn. It looks sweet leveled but missing the larger tires. I have the stock wheels 20x8 s on it and wish to keep those wheels. Can anyone give any answers to what the largest tire I can put on without rubbing?

If you run wheel spacers on the front you can run up to a 35 inch tire. If you decide to get aftermarket wheels with the right offset you can ditch the spacers.

Really it depends on the brand of the leveling kit, for example I know the BDS leveling kit for my 2007 allows me to run a 35x12.50 tire. Look on the manufacturer's website and pull up your leveling kit for your truck and it should tell you the max size tire you can run. If not, let us know what brand it is and maybe we can find it for you.

If I was to change wheels what would be the best offset to keep as close to factory as possible?

If wanted to be as close to factory you would want something around a +18 I believe, but if you want to fit those 35s without spacers I think you need at least +6. I think the best offset to fit would be a 0 offset this will allow room for the tire with out pushing it out to much past the fenders. There are a lot of threads on this checked out the lifted and leveled sections.

Also as far as the tires I would maybe look into a 295 60 20 or a 295 65 20. Check threads I'm the lifted section for pics of leveled trucks with these sizes.
