Default Lifted (pics) now what tires on stock rims?

2013 Crew Cab 2500 Bighorn. Added leaf to the pack to help out sag when towing.
Before:

After:



Ended up with a substantial rake:


So I ordered Tuff truck 1216V springs and shocks. 2" to 2 1/2" lift for a diesel. I got a hair over 3" being I have the 5.7.

Stock springs on the left new ones on the right:





Ended up with 1" Higher in the rear...28 1/4" ground to top of wheel well, and 27 1/8" front.


Was thinking 315 70 17 or 35 12.5 17. Because I would like to stay with the stock rim for now. Would 325 75 17 be an option?

I think 35 x 12.50 would look awesome on that. But you should talk to BrandonJansen about it. He's a wheel and tire expert on here and he recently traded a 1500 for a 2500. I'll send him a link to this thread.

You could probably fit the 325/75/17 if you really wanted to... it would take some work though. And IMO it would looked stuffed so personally I wouldn't go that big. With the leveling kit you'll have no problem running a 35x12.5 on the stock rims. Personally that's what I'd go with, it will look the most proportionate and you shouldn't have any issues with rubbing.
