Default Rubbing on wheel tire set up?

Hi everyone, I just got my truck a few months ago and just starting to really get into making in "mine".

So far I have a daystar level lift kit, and coming in the mail, K&N.

My question is about rim and tires, and wondering about rubbing issues, I am looking at the ultra gauntlet 17x9 rims with hopefully 35x12.50 General Grabber tires. If not 35, then 33's

Can anybody tell me if i'll have any rubbing issues or need spacers?

Any info would help, and be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks
Craig

It all depends on the lift. Im sure it's more than 2 inches, but probably not more than 6 if its from daystar. But with a 2 or 3 inch lift, you can clear 33's with no problem. With a 3 inch you could probably be ok with 35s, but you will probably need wheel spacers. I thonk 33s would be a good choice though!

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. I'm not the first and won't be the last to ask ~ How about posting a few photos of your truck? Not sure on the tire size and lift issue, I've read that 33's and 35's will work and

alright, i appreciate it, its the daystar level lift, listed at 2.5" but really only gave me about 1.75". Its says it can clear 35's but id rather not take the chance and just go with 33's. Im sure it wont look too much different, and save me a few bucks too

While a lot of rubbing issues are dependent on lift size, they are also caused by too wide of a tire or too wide of a tire on a wheel with the wrong offset.

What offsets are available on the wheels you have picked?

they are 20mm offset with 5.75" backspacing, and the tires are 12.5" wide. I am going to be adding a 1.5" body lift as well, so it would be a total of 3" of lift when its all said and done. So im definitely looking more towards 35" tires.

any help would be appreciated!!

With a 20mm offset I wouldn't go to wide. While I don't know your exact answer, just from the research I have been doing myself you wouldn't want to go wider then 11.5"-12" on the tire. Height wise you should be able to fit a 35".

I would go with the following if your set on that rim:
265/70R17 31.6x10.4
285/70R17 32.7x11.2
285/75R17 33.8x11.2
295/70R17 33.3x11.6

If you want a wider tire then you are going to need to find a wheel with either a negative offset or a lower offset then 20. This may make the wheel stick out from the fenders though.

I read this on another forum (dodgeforum):
Quote:
For wider tires, it is best to have negative offset. Stock 17X7" has +17 offset, and that is why the tire is pushed back into the wheel well. Negative offset will start to push the wheel out of the wheel well, and away from the control arms, etc.
