Default Question on 2008 2WD Ram

Hello out there in Dodge Ram Country, I have a question for you. I have a 2008 2WD QC Dodge Ram Hemi with the factory 20" wheels and I will be putting a 2" front leveling kit, my question is what is the widest size tires I can put on it without having to install wheel spacers? I like the beefy look and was thinking along the lines of 305/50/20 NTG's but have no clue if it would rub

Thanks in advance
Sport14692

Dude im trying to figure out the same exact thing....i did find this but it didnt tell me anything about spacers....



For up to 33" tires, there is no lift required.

For 35" tires, a minimum of 2" of lift is required.

For 36" tires, a minimum of 4" of lift is required.

For 37" tires, a minimum of 6" of lift is required.

For 38" tires, a minimum of 7" of lift is required.

For 39" tires, a minimum of 9" of lift is required.

For 40" tires, a minimum of 10" of lift is required.

I also heard that we need the 2.5in spacer on our truck if we want it perfectly level...

Travis, those look like Moto Metals. I might be wrong, but I had those on my truck in 17's.

LOL. No it's a 1930 Chevy. We bought it for a certain dollar amount and a promise that we would keep it all original. She is all original.
As for the rims, they were corroded under the chrome. My dad and I bought all kinds of polishing kits and buffing kits...nothing worked. We even used steel wool and it REALLY spiffied them up but made the corrosion more obvious. So 4wheelparts.com out of Florida, made good, bought them back and let me pick what I wanted out of their catalog. I will say 4wheelparts.com did phenominal work to make this situation correct!
Back to topic, sorry for the brief threadjack, Sport. Still awaiting an answer on spacers.
