Default 37s on lifted 2007 1500 2wd...

Guys,

I have a 2007 Ram 1500 QC 2wd with 9" of lift and am currently running Mickey Thompson ATZs on 35x13.5/20s on Gear Alloy 20x10 wheels. The tires do not scrub but it is getting time for a new set. Will 37s fit? Picture below...

i think 37 should fit easy. plus with fendor flare you can just put some spacers on and possibly get up to 38"

You will be able to put 37" tires without any problems. If your wheels have a negative offset you should be fine and you wont need a spacer.

I have the same tires as you and I have a 2007 4x4 with a 6" lift. Since you have the 2wd your truck is a couple inches lower then the 4x4. This would mean your truck is about an inch taller then my truck. Saying this I know I can fit 37" tires on my truck so that means you should be able to. The only thing is I would go with a 37x12.5 tire rather then the 13.5 width. Only thing is when you have the 13.5" width you dont want to go less haha, I'm in the same boat!

Looking at your pic you have there it seems like your front tires are really close to the rear of the wheel well. Is that cause your wheel is cranked to the left?

Measure your spacing between the tire face and trailing edge of your fender opening just to make sure. It won't hurt to do the same between the tire face that the trailing edge of your front bumper, too.

Do this with the wheels pointed straight ahead and turn the wheel to where the face of the tire is pointed straight at the sheetmetal.

I have 6" suspension lift and my 37 x 13.5 rubbed slightly at first. I think you will be fine.
