Hello, Im new to the forum. I have an 07 2500 4x4 6speed manual 5.9L running the stock tires and wheels 265x70x17. The rims are the 17x8 and I am wanting to know how big of tires can I fit on the stock rims? I am going to be doing a 4" lift and want to keep the stock rims for now. Also if you guys know of the best place to pick some tires up too...probably gonna go with some sort of all terrain do to the wear.
Thanks
David

I know you can put 305's and 33" on if you want to. Not sure about 35's though.

Yup 35's or 37's that are 12.50 wide will fit fine on the stock rims. 35's will need 2'' leveling kit to clear properly though.

I have been running 37x13.50's on my stock rims on my Dually for awhile now and I have had no problems at all. Matter of fact, I know lots of people with the same tires as me.

So 35's should work good then..do you think its gonna look bad with a 4" lift? Should I just go with a leveling kit instead? Any pics of anyone running 17" rims with a 4" lift and 17" with just a leveling kit?
Thanks

Personally, I think the 35's will look good either way. But I do know that you can run 37's on the 4" kit too if you wanted to go that way.:thumbsup

35's (actually 315's) with level kit.



The guys at Discount Tire said that you will want a wider rim to get even tire wear. Right now the very inside and outside hardy wear at all. IMO, 35's make the truck look like it should. With a 4" lift, 37's would look best, IMHO. To each their own.
