Default Need level to fit 285/55r22 on stock 09 Dodge 2wd?

Hey guys, just registered here because I can't seem to find an answer around. I asked the guys at Discount Tire and they just kinda looked at each other and shrugged, then tried to get me to buy r20's.

Anyways, I bought the 285/55r22 Trail Grapplers to go on my 22 inch Rockstar rims (got them with the truck, awesome looking rim btw).

I have a stock 2009 Dodge Ram Limited 2wd, he previously had the rims on Terra Grapplers that were 305/45r22 so there's a significant difference there.

Am I going to need a level for these bad boys? If so, any recommendations? And will I need shocks? I know Bilstein makes a pretty nice level for the 4wd, but I don't think they work with the 2wd.

Thanks guys

They are 34.5 in dia. You probably don't need to level since you are on the street only. But, should you decide to you will need spacers. Bilsteins are for coilovers and won't work on the 2WD. And Welcome to the Forumz.

What's the width and offset of your rim? That will determine whether you need to level or not.

I would say most likely but it depends how high your truck sits also. My 09 2wd big horn sat a lot higher than my friends 11 2wd Ram can't remember his trim level. Maxtrac sells 2" front spring kit that will help you clear them and level out the truck a little. My tires on my 09 at stock height were 33.5" with no issue but not sure if that 1/2" height difference will rub anything.

Got them on, slight rub at full wheel turn, but only when doing U-turns really.

Awesome combination btw. Thanks guys!

Some 1/4 hubcentric /wheel centric spacers will fix that slight rub while getting you a tight fit for the aftermarket wheels without any vibrations you get from some cheat spacers. I think it was Motorsporttech that sells them. They make the spacer in any mm you want to change the offset slightly to get rid of the run and with a hub/ wheel centric it will hold the wheel to the hub not just lugs.
