Question 06 Ram 1500 eveling kit with 35s?

Hey everybody I'm new to the Forum and am wondering a most asked question but anyway. I have an 06 Ram 1500 Regular Cab 4x4 with a ReadyLift 2.5" leveling kit. The manufacturer states that it can easily fit a 35" tire. But I've never seen a regular cab with just a leveling kit on 35s. I have the 5.7L HEMI and 3.92 gears and performance upgrades so power loss isn't an issue with me. I was just wondering it they'd fit and any suggestions for tires. I primarily use it to haul and tow with mild offroad use only when it's needed to get to job sites. I also have 18x9 Eagle Alloys with 4.5" backspace and -12mm offset so fitting the tires on won't be a problem either. Just overall clearance in the fender is my only concern. Pictures would be helpful as well

I've seen it. A 2.5" level kit is about the minimum you can get by with on that gen truck to clear 35's. As a comparison, here's my 2007 MegaCab with a 4" lift and 35's on 18", +18mm offset, wheels:







The actual tire size is 285/75Rx18

Thanks I actually just ordered a set of 35s Thursday. Hoping to put them on next Monday when I actually have time off to pick them up.

With your offset you should be alright, I just did 2.5 in the front and 1.5 in the rear with 20" rockstars with a -24 mm offset and 305 55 20s and i rub against the fender near the door if I cut it hard in reverse but thats because of the offset, height wise I'm fine.
