For 33's you can use the factory back spacing, and can probably use another 1" wider rim before you need flares

I have just stock 2wd big horn 1500 with 305/55 on the factory 20 which is a 33x12.10 with only rub at full lock. with the 1.5 front level kit it should fix it so you should have no.problem with 33's but a 35 you may need a aftermarket wheel with5" backspace if I remember right from what my friend had on his 2010 1500 with 2or 2.5" kit. check a couple local shops if you want to be positive.

I was actually at the shop today looking for new wheels and tires for my '09 Ram 2wd. Actually looking at 35x12.50x17 ProComp All Terrain Xtreme tires and 17x9 XD Addict wheels. The Addicts what a 5.71in backspace and 18mm offset. Hope that helps some...

33's will rub agains the plastic over time and the screws holding in the plastic will come out atleast that's what happend with me no big deal just screwed them back in. but other wise no rubbing part of the problem is i have aftermarket rims that are wider. and they stick out a good amount but with stock rims you should be good to go. i'd go 33's less work and $$ if you go with an after market rims put some screws in the plastic by the fender and your good to go!
