Default Biggest tires without lift?

I have an 06 Quad cab with 245/40/r17 tires at the moment. What is the biggest tire I can put on it without it rubbing when I turn, or adding a lift kit? Thanks in advance for any info.

I've seen 35's on an 06 ram with no lift or leveling kit before, there was a lot of rubbing though, and a bunch of wear and tear. You could probably run 33's, but will still have a little rubbing. With a 2 inch leveling kit and 33's you'd be good. But probably a set of 275's (31's) are going to be the biggest you can run comfortably

Thanks, I've searched all over for the internet for that answer, but found nothing.

35's but u cant go w/ 35x12.5's or they will rub i believe.

u need to find a 35 that is 11 or 11.5 wide.


33's come stock on them w/ 20" wheels, so i know 35's will fit, its the width you have to worry about.

Truly, width is more of an issue than height. But I agree, a 275 section width tire will work. I'd be a bit concerned about a 33" tire rubbing on the leading or trailing edge of the fenders.
