If you call either the Tire Rack or Discount tire they can probably tell you. Their websites have good info if you type in your truck's info.

Most suspension lift companies will give a tire size recomendation in their catalogs....with a 3 inch lift, i would say at least a 33 inch tire...I put a set of 33-12.50's on a stock 2500..Dodges seem to have a little more clearence then other trucks

i've got a 97 1500 with 2" spacers and i run 35x12.50r15s. they rub on the control arms, but only at full lock in either direction and with the suspension compressed. the kit recommended 33x12.50r15s, but the extra 2 inches fit just fine for most anything i get into
