the bolt pattern in 5x5.5

you wont be able to fit 305s on stock ram tho. 285 is about as wide as you can get without rubbing.


what do you want pictures of??

Default Leveling Kit

If I go to a leveling kit will the 305's fit without rubbing? Seems it equates to a 33 inch tire. What leveling kit would you guys recommend?

yes with a leveling kit you'll be fine. you might need 1/4" spacers though. Or buy new wheels that are at least 0 offset.

bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks are hands down the best way to level these rams

I think you'd be fine running those tires with some wheels spacers. They're basically the same height as stocks just wider, so the spacer will help clear the control arm. Otherwise you shouldn't have an issue.. they may even look small with a level installed but who knows. You'll need the wheel spacer regardless on stock rims.

You should talk to your local tire shops about this, lots of times aftermarket rims can be ordered in different backspacings, so you might be able to get some wheels to work without spacers.

personally i have Ballistic Jesters 18x9 with -18 offest ( i believe ) and I barely rub with 35x12.5 Trail Grapplers. I only have a 2" leveling kit by Ready Lift... 100% agree you should go with the 5100 Bilstiens for your leveling kit... They can be used with a lift should you decide to go bigger later... Im about to rip my Spacers out and put the 5100s.

If your truck is not 4x4 you probably can't run 305's.

But my first set of tires I Had 305/55/20's Stock Wheels. BFG A/T. I had no issues with rubbing even when I maxxed out the turning. But my truck is 4x4 so it sits a little higher. I only got 40K out of those tires tho.

Now running 285's IDK why I chose this size probably cause i wanted to save money but NOW I am Getting 35's with my bilistine lift.

So If you have a 4x4 then You can safely run 305's IMO
