Default 2010 2500 4X4 running 35's

Anybody have pics of a stock 2010 2500 4X4 running 35's (35/12.50/17) on the stock 17" rims without (or with) a leveling kit? Preferably without so I can see if I really need one.

Just took delivery on a 2010 2500 4X4 today. What is the biggest size tire I can put on the stock 17" rim at the stock height? I was looking at a 35/12.50/17 Nitto Trail Grappler.

I think I could get away with running those 35's without a leveling kit?

I talked to my mechanic and he suggested a 2" drop pitman arm to take the stress away from the joints when installing the kit.

Cool. Thanks for the pic. Maybe someone has a pic of 35's without the kit?

The biggest tire you can run with out a leveling kit on stock wheels are 33's, unless they make a 35x11.5 tire...i dont think that size exsist

Stock with 33s (285/70/17) on stock wheels. I'm pretty sure 305/70/17 would fit stock with no issues as well. Most 35"s would too with just a level kit, but some (like Toyo M/T) are wider than others and will rub slightly at full turn. I had to use 1/4" spacers to keep mine from rubbing the control arm on the passenger side (bottom pic).



33s with lift kit (5" R/C kit, actual lift was 4.5" front, 4" rear).



Same truck with a lift and 35"s.
