Default I no its been done alot, once more

so I know the tire size thing has been done a lot, but I have read post after post after post and none of them talk about what's the biggest you can fit while still off roading most people say with a2 inch leveling kit, ( which is what I'm going to buy soon) that you can fit 35's but does that mean just driving straight on a flat road or can you go over whoops an jump your truck while still sitting 35s without rubbing or can you only do that with stock fitment 33's? my question is with a2 inch leveling kit what's the biggest size tire that I can of road with , with out any damage to my truck or the tire? I have a 2011 Quad Cab 4x4 st.

Ill save you alot of time and money, dont jump your truck with a leveling kit. You can fit 35s on a leveling kit, but it may rub when flexing.

Ya I wouldnt obviously try to jump it with a leveling kit, but I often off road in ocotillo wells California and glamis, and sometimes you had bigger bumps then expected, and I wouldn't want that to happen and then ruin my fender or my tires. in order to climb some of the steeper softer Hills, you have to use momentum and take bumps pretty fast, so what you're saying is 35 would probably rub then?

im not too sure if they would rub or not on extreme situations like that. You could flex 33s like crazy and not rub though. Maybe someone else should chime in with the same setup
