Default Moto Metal Tire and Wheel Size?

I am looking at purchasing some Moto Metal 951's. I have a 2006 Ram 1500 QuadCab. I am up in the air on what size wheel to go with either a 18" or 20" w/ 35's. Its my understanding that am gonna need at least a leveling kit in the front to clear the tires. Does anyone have any suggestions on what size to go with along with tire size? A am hoping for something that would give some width along with some height. Also, if someone knew of a good website to purchase from that would help alot.

Thanks Alot

Ahhh good choice of wheel! I love those 951's. 18's will be somewhat cheaper and will look plenty big enough. I'd just stick with those. And if you're going to run 35x12.5's, I'd recommend at least -12mm offset so you that you can try and stay away from spacers. If you're going with just a leveling kit, I'd recommend just 33's. They look less stuffed in the wheel wells IMO. As for a website, I'd check out 4wheelparts.com They always have some kind of special running. Back before christmas, I actually got my wheels for %20 off and with free shipping!

I agree...18's will be cheaper and give you a good sized sidewall.

The offset of -12mm will allow you to go to a 12.50 tire with no rubbing.

A level kit won't give you the vertical clearance you need for 35's, however. It's either go with some 33's or a 4" lift for 35's.
