I'm running 33x12.50 on my 09 with just a leveling kit. I've got mixed reviews as well. However I'm running 12.50's and my buddy has a 2011 with a leveling kit and 35's that are 10.50's. So, logic says a 35x12.50 would fit and run fine.

I DO NOT rub with 33x12.50's, and I know his 35's fit and as far as I know they don't rub. It might be tight but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I have 305 55 20 on a 20 x10( -24mm offset) inch rim on my 06 Megacab which I believe is close to a 33 and its tight with a 2.5 inch level kit. Its hard for me to imagine 35's on with just a level kit but I'm no genius keep us updated and give us a couple of pics when you figure it out. Good luck

Default daystar 2 1/2 inch lift

so im guessing that if im looking to put 35/12.5/20 on my 2012 ram 1500 with a 2 1/2inch lift front and rear i should not rub at all. Im looking at the daystar poly lift, super east to install and doesnt effect ride.

You should be alright, but you will need to address offset, I'm running BFG 37x12.50x17's on mine, with a ready lift leveling kit, I have very minor rub at left turn lock, but I went from +19 offset (stock 20's) to -12 offset (new 17's) another 6mm of offset via spacer will cure any rub

At that combo, tire selection and its aggressiveness is the nail in the coffin as to determine its rubbing capabilities or not.

IMHO, the 35"/12.5"/20" combination looks amazing on leveled full-sized pickups ..... with the right tire selection. It's the combo I hope to be rolling in by the year's end.

Good luck brother.

so the verdict is in.. i went with a 17x9 ion alloy rim with a 4.5 inch backspacing wrapped in a bfg all terrain ko and i dont have any rubbing issues what so ever.. looks great fills the wheel well nice and plenty of clearance lock to lock up and down curbs all around. havent done any offroading yet but im confident it will not rub. thanks everyone for your input and pics will be taken as soon as i take her out to get muddy..
