Default New Member, New Truck(Pic!), Need Advice!

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post! I2 recently bought a 2011 Ram 1500 4x4 Sport Crew Cab. I have been researching around the forums for a leveling kit and have decided on the hell bent steel 2.5" leveling kit. Here's the deal, I've got a guy at the local tire shop that says he will do an even trade with me: my stock tires and 20s for a set of black 17x9 wheels and some 33x12.5017 nitto trail grapplers. Can this model truck even run a 17" wheel? If so, does anything think this will look okay? He said they have -12mm offset so they will stick out a little bit, which is what I want. Anyone running a setup close to this? Thanks guys, looking forward to getting involved in the forum.

well I know my '09 they say 17's is the smallest due to our big ass brakes...don't see why the '11's would be any different, I run 18's with 275/70/18 = 33.2x10.8/18 just fine on mine....with the offset there shouldn't be any rubbing issue

17's are what will be on my 2011 when ever it gets here. The only issue I see are the 12.5 width. Unless there is an offset on the wheels he has it will probably rub during sharp turns. Leveling kit will help with that but I'll leave that to those who have there trucks and leveling kits already.

Thanks for the replies guys. Sorry my picture didn't work at first, I think I fixed it. I think I may go ahead and take this guy up on the trade offer after I install my leveling kit. Anyone know of someone running this setup? Pics possibly? lol

A lot of people are going with leveling kits. Does anyone tow trailers after leveling their trucks and if so, how does that affect towing? And Welcome to the forum!!

Duuuude, your truck is exactly what I am looking at buying here soon!!! I say keep the stock rims but maybe upgrade the tires to an AT/MT tire that looks more aggressive. Congrats on the new truck, hope to be getting my soon!

Man I love this truck, the exterior is perfect in my opinion. You going with black? I think I can fit 35x12.50s on the stock wheels after the leveling kit...this may look really good. Thanks for the tip, I'll check into this for sure!
