Hi everyone. So I've seen alot of questions on the 09 and newer rams but not many on the '12's. I know the rear suspension is differnt then years past. What I'm looking at is a leveling kit and some dick cepeck 33 13.50 18 the rims i have in mind have a 4.5 inch backspacing and are 18x10. should work, correct? or do i need to go with a 33 12.5 instead of the 13.50

I dont think anyone makes a 33x13.50. I would put some 35x12.50's on there and call it a day. I think a 13.50 would rub with just a level.

This thread has been a great source of info! But, I still am a little unsure about what to do as far as offset (don't entirely understand it)...

What I want to do is purchase the Rough Country 2.25"/1.5" Combo Kit. I am going to purchase new wheels and am thinking of staying with 17" (18" not out of the question). Another member here did this lift and put 305/70/17's on with no issues (but I don't know his wheel offset). Also, I am having trouble finding that tire size, so I was thinking of doing 315/70/17's.

So ... what do you guys think? Will those tires fit ok? What wheel offset should I be looking for? Thanks in advance!

Default rim offset

Need some help. Right now im running 35x12.5r20 on my 2010 dodge ram with a 1/4" spacer with stock rims. I want to get a new set of rims and I want them to stick out a little more and not sure on the back spacing or offset I should get. Oh I have a Leveling kit and a 1.75" body lift. Thanks for the help.

It will depend on how far you want it to stick out of your fender.....
5" backspacing should be a minimum to look at. It will be more tucked (still sits out of the fender about 1"-1.5") than a 4.5" backspace wheel.

So, you need to ask yourself, how much do you want it to stick out? Do you want to run flares? If so, what kind of flares?

Example: I have a 20x9, 0 offset/5" backspace rim on 37x12.5 tires. I stick out about 1.25" from the fenders. But I will be running 2500 flares which should have my wheels flush with it.

Hey guys, buying my rims this weekend, I bought myself 37" terra's witch I believe are 13.5"-14" wide, also doing a 6" rc lift, any opinions on what off set I need?

Hey Drex!
Grab if you are not looking to stick out a whole lot but want to stick out a tad, go with the -12 offset.
You will stick out 2"-2.3" but on a lift that is perfect
-24 will have you out about 2.5"-2.8"

Neither look bad, it just depends on the look you are looking to obtain.
