Default 2WD Lift and tires

Hello everyone, i have 13 ram 1500 2x4. I'm looking to install the maxtrac 7 inch lift that allows 37 inch tires. truckinweb did an install on a truck like mine but black instead of white. I was told i can either run 12.5 inch wide tires or 13.5. believe it or not the 12.5 areusually more expensive than a 37x13.5x20 tire. Anyone running 13.5 wide without rubbing? when you look at the tech specs on toyo or nitto the 13.5s are about the same as the 12.5 wide! what gives? If anyone has any recommendation please chime in. I will also be re gearing to 4.11s and lsd since i have 3.21 open diff with the 6 speed. the gearing is the most expensive single item to upgrade roughly 1300 in parts! The BMF F.I.T.E. wheel come in two offset o offset and -12 i think. Anyone know which one would work on this setup.

Thanks

In order to fit a 37" tire on only 7" of lift on a 2wd 1500 the width of the rim, tire, and offset of the rim is going to play a huge part. A 13.5 Nitto Trail Grappler or Toyo MT is not even close to the same as a 12.5 spec'd tire. They are actually around 14.5" wide when mounted. With a 20x9 0 offset wheel you should be able to clear them without rubbing but it's going to be tight for sure. Going to a wider wheel with a more negative offset will definitely make them rub.

thanks for the heads, Makes sense. I will stick with 12.5 wide just in case,even maxtrac said you can 13.5. by the time its mounted it will be 13.5 wide. Maxtrac says wheel spacing 5.5 inches or less. I believe front axle track width increases by an inch which isn;t much. might have to use spacers for rears. dont want staggered rims.(like to rotate my tires. LOL)

Well shoot Sean at maxtrac a email on their website he can tell you the offset. As far as I know the 7" fits 37x12.5's but you maybe able to squeeze a 13.5 with the right offset probably 0. I have the 4.5" spindles with 3" rear coil setup. Also don't forget the spindle widens the track by 1" so a 0 would actually be like a -24 on a normal 4x4 on the front. He helped me out a lot with my build. I have 34x12.5's and I didn't want it sticking out in front so I used +12mm on front and -12 out back. I can either remove the tires to rotate. But I may just get a 2" spacer for the back to rotate and they will stay even that way. I don't put many miles on so I only need to rotate once a year.
