The only thing that would stop you from going with a bigger tire on a rim would be the width. If the width of the tire is too big for the width of the rim then they will not work properly. Height wise you can put whatever height on a rim. So if you know the width of your rims then you should not go over 3" more on the width. Some tires can go 4" more then the rim width.

If you have a 3500 with a leveling kit then I would think you can fit a 33" for sure maybe even a 35". I am not too sure about the 2nd gen trucks so dont take my word for it

I have a 2006 Ram 1500 with a 2.5 leveling kit and 35's fit on it with a 20 inch rim. Had to trim the fenders up a little bit because the tires would rub if the wheel was cranked but not much at all and cant even notice. Not sure on the 2nd generation though but with a 3500 you should be able to fit 35's with a leveling kit installed. Head down to your local tire store the will be able to tell you what should fit and what wouldnt.
