Default Can't get a straight answer from my dealership!?

Hey everyone. I have talked to people at my dealership and done a ton of looking online. No one seems to give the same answer. I'm looking at getting a 2" levelling kit done at the dealership. They say it's really 1.5". I am wanting to buy rims and tires today but don't know what to order. 18s vs 20s. I like the black xd monster rims. Looking for an aggressive tire but not MT. Probably AT. I have a 2013 laramie 1500. So it comes with the little stock flares. I'm wanting to keep those and not put on bushwhacker style. The stock rims and tires are in a bit on the flares. I want my new ones to be at least flush but preferably have a little poke past the flares. With all this info I am very curious on suggestions and info I need to order. What offset do I do to accomplish this?(is +19 stock?) also what's the max rim and tires I can fit with ZERO rubbing with that levelling kit. Thank you very much to everyone that takes their time to help me out. Hoping to buy today. Rims and tires as a package. Will also take suggestions for where to buy online in canada if a specific site helps anyone out. Thanks!

That guide helped me tremendously! I am just working out a few minor details to get the exact look I'm trying to accomplish…


Also do some google image searching, this way you can see exactly what it will look like on your truck before throwing down the $$$

Many guys on the boards here can guide you in the right direction!
We have all asked the same questions you asked and have and through that process many know what works and doesn't

Me personally? Ive done this so many times to my personal truck...lol

Thanks for all the responses guys! I will also admit it was a great writeup and I now understand 95% of it compared to maybe 50% from before haha. After reading that and doing research I am looking at getting a 2" level(they say it's 1.5" technically). Doing it at dealership to keep warrenty. I will be looking at 20" xd monster rims in black. Probably 20x10 with -18 offset. Curious if anyone has done this or something similar and can comment on rub at full lock. I want zero rub and would like to know personal experiences before I drop the money on them. Hoping I can get like a 33" x 12.5" AT tire with no rub. Thanks in advance for any help or info

your stock tire is pretty much a 33, if youre not getting mts try to get something like 34'' tall and like 10.5 wide or 11 wide. will fill you wheel wells alot more, id also go with the -24offset

I disagree... -24 w/20x10 and 35"s will have you about 2+" beyond your OEM fender flares, which wouldn't look right IMO with only a 1.5" lift. +1 with the same set-up will still take you about .5+" beyond...

I have no rubbing issues with my set-up. I have the OEM flares, which I haven't installed yet, but I placed the front driver 's side against the fender just to gauge the clearance and my tire still goes about .25" beyond... Post#26 will give you an idea: http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=162904
