Default Question about lift/tires

Hey guys, this question has probably been answered 16,000,000 times, but I put a 2" front leveling kit on my 2012 ram sport and was wondering what size of tire to put on. I want a more aggressive mud/trail tire and was wondering what would look best and best bang for my buck. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

35s... some wheel spacers or offset rims will be needed

285 is typically the widest you can go without any wheel spacers. Some guys do get away with more though, it depends on the truck.

But as Chad said, 35x12.5's with 1/4" wheel spacers would look the best. Otherwise aftermarket rims with the correct offset.

Technically you only need them on the front to clear the upper A-arms. But I would do them all the way around otherwise the difference in poke between the front and back wheels will be even bigger than it is stock.

2"level and 35's will be tight and will require some modification.
Typically 2.5" is required and is already a tight fit.
If just a 2" level I'd go for a 34" equivalent tire or 34.5" tire like the nitto trail 295/65/20

If you need pricing on tires or leveling kit, let me know

You are right and it was my typo.

Let me know if you need pricing on the tires
