Default Info regarding lifting my 2011 Ram 1500 Sport

Any information is greatly appreciated. Originally i was going to use a READYLIFT 2.5" front end kit. Now i'm not so sure it will work. The wheels/tires I am going with are: XD 20"X10" Rockstars wheels with Toyo Open Country M/T 35"X12.5 tires. I dont want the huge lift look on the truck. I'd only like to lift it the minimum amount for these tires to fit. Any advise would be great since this is my first lift.

Thanks in advance.

-Ken

You will rub with those size tires due to the width depending upon the wheel offset. I think youll need -12 offset to clear, but thats not 100% for sure on the 20x10 wheels. With a -12 offset, you should be OK on 9" wheels. Maybe someone running that size can give you a definitive answer.

As far as height goes, you should be ok provided you get the correct offset of wheels to set them out a bit.

I think you're right. So after some research i'm looking at a -24 offset giving me backspace of 4.55". The lift i'm going with is a Heavy Metal Suspension 3" levelling kit in the front and 1.5" lift in the rear. They've guaranteed me it will fit 20"X10" wheels with -12 offset or more with the 35"X12.5". I'll post some pix once its done in a few weeks.

Thanks for the insight.
