Default Need help picking rims and tires

I need some help. I have a 2010 1500 4x4. I would like to install a 2" HBS leveling kit, swap my 20s for 17s or 18s, and put more meat under my truck. Any suggestions for tire size and were to buy rims would be appreciated. Also if anyone has had a bad experience with the HBS kit let me know. I need my truck to get to work so I can't afford any unforeseen issues.

All of these forums have a search function. Search different key words your looking for. I'm new here, but have been on lots of different forums. Try doing some of the research yourself and if you come up empty, ask. I've been reading on here for hours trying to learn as much as I can about my new truck. Best of luck…

BTW, with a 2" kit, you MIGHT be able to fit a 35" tall tire (depending on width and wheel backspacing/offset), but you'll likely have to do some trimming.

Hope this helps.

I have the 2.5 HBS kit in mine and can fit 35's. If you are going with 17 inch rims I would go with 285 70 17 Goodyear duratracs.

Going with a smaller rim, just keep an eye on steering knuckle clearance. I have 18's with 35x12.50s and clearance is pretty tight, but that depends on the wheel offset. Too far in will hit steering knuckle, too far out you may need to trim inside the wheel wells. My wheels are 18x9 with 5" BS, 4.5 BS would work fine also.
