Default Lift with size 35 tires? OR Level with 26's rims

So this is something i have been completely undecided about for the last 4 months. I have an all blacked out 2012 RAM 1500 sport 2WD. Now should I get a 6 inch lift kit with the Tuff T01 wheels. Or throw the 26 on there with size 315/40/26 tires.





OR

get a 3 inch front level kit and install some BZO Lucky 6 size 26" wheels in all black.





Can I please get as many opinions as possible from everybody. I'm only 22 years old so i am completely undecided. The 26's are more of my style right now but i also think that a lifted truck never goes out of style.

I say get the lift and 35s. It's a truck, make it look like one and work like one. The 26s are...i'm not gonna say it. Just my opinion.

LIFT LIFT LIFT!

you gotta jack er up and throw real tires on it. Even without 4x4, those tires will allow for you to have some fun.

Personally, I think that 22+ inch rims are meant for escalades, Chevys with caddy front clip and drug dealers...lol
It would probably be a pretty rough ride too.

Good Choice.

I am not against 26/28" rims with elastic band tires but I have yet to see a Ram with them that was, IMO, tasteful.

Not a fan of the big rims/low profile tires. Trucks should have big rubber.
