I bought some SRT10 replicas 305/45/r22. They rub the upper A arm so I called Motorsport Tech and ordered spacers. The tech said he has built hundreds of these for the 4 gen rams and they need to be 10mm. Ok, so I install everything, no rub, but I only got barely 6 full turns on the lug nuts. I cranked them down to 100-120 foot pounds. Is the thread engagement and torque safe to drive and not worry?
Your spacers should have come with instructions for the install. I forget exactly what they said but it tells you how many full turns you need on the lugs to be safe. I believe the torque spec is 80 ft-lbs as well, not 100 or 120. If you didn't get any instructions email Lenny at Motorsport Tech and ask for some. He should get back to you pretty quick.

I have a 2014 ram crew cab express and am considering a pro comp 6" lift and 35" toyo open country mt tires. I'd prefer not to run flares or spacers.
My question is.....if I stay with a 9" rim will 0 offset rub and will -12 stick out too far?
Do I need to consider an AT tire?
With a 35x12.5 Toyo MT on a 9" wide 0 offset rim you'd be 1.5" past the fender on the front, 1" on the back. A -12 offset would be 2" front, 1.5" rear. With a 6" lift that will look really proportional; having them tucked under too far won't look right.
Here's a thread about the lift I had on my 1500. 6" RCX with 20x9 -12 offset and 35x12.5 Toyo MT's. There's lots of pictures so you can see how it looks - http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=148146
