Default Right Tire Choice

Hey all
Looking to purchase off-road tires for my 2013 1500 Outdoorsman. This summer i put the Rough Country Leveling kit on. Want to change out the stock tires for a set of MT's. I have been looking at the Cooper SST's, Toyo Open Country's, Nitto Trail Grappler's, Or Dick Cepek Mud Country's. I have the stock 20'' rims, currently. Also not sure if i will be able to get 35's underneath or if i have to go with 33's. (prefer to get 35's). Also keeping cost in mind, as i really don't want to get very pricey. I've had BFG AT and MT's on a prior 2500. Tread wear was horrible. My best guess was d/t the 1 ton weight of the 2500. Help/Suggestions are welcome!! Thanks!

You can get 35's on there no problem. You're gonna need a 1/4 inch spacer on those stock wheels to keep them from rubbing though. Let's see some pics when you're done.

I just ordered 35x12.50 trail grapplers for my 2011 outdoorsman. I'll let you know of any issues I encounter if they ever show up at my door.

You have 33s now. 35s will fit. You'll need a 1/4" spacer to eliminate rub at full lock. Unless you upgrade your wheels to something w at least a zero offset. As for gearing, there are plenty of ppl running 3:55 gears without issue. 3:92 gears would be better. Check your build sheet to know for sure what you have. If you don't have your build sheet, you can ask Chrysler for it.
