I have a ram 1500 and I'm either thinking of doing a leveling kit and street tires or lift and mud tires. Which one should I do

I would go with the package that fit's 90% of your
Ram's intended use ;)

When you know your own needs, it's a bad idea to ask others what to do. They don't know your needs. Now, ask "how to" and you'll get your answers.

Go with what you plan on doing the most of or what you like best.

Its subjective, but I'd level and do all terrains.

I don't like too much lift, looks goofy and tortures your CV axles

I like them leveled and proportional. But that's just me.

Everyone has their own idea of their perfect truck.

I drove lifted trucks for years. Now that I'm older (and wiser), I enjoy the comfort of a more stock ride (and I would consider a simple level as close to stock). Lifted trucks can get expensive to maintain and certainly will stress other components on the truck as mentioned earlier (e.g., CV joints)

Personally I try to stick with what's practical or necessary, so me in your shoes says neither; it sounds like you don't go off-road, so neither the lift/level or tires would have any benefit besides looks.

However, between those options, I'd level and get the tires. There's a Ford I see around here with probably a 4 inch lift on stock rims and wheels.... 1. It's still going to drag the rear diff if he ever goes offroad since it's at stock height. 2. It's vehicle wear and tear and makes them less economical. 3. It looks ridiculous.
