    just looking for some info. i have a 04 ram 2500 4wd my stock tires are LT265/70R17 on stock rims. i want to keep the stock rims and put like a 35" off road tires on if i could at stock height. the tires im looking at have 35" tires for 17" rims but its LT315/70R17. just woundering if that would work on my stock rims for this truck since i have no freakin clue. lol

    Just be sure it's an E rated tire. Anything lighter and your truck will handle poorly. You may need a leveling kit for front tire clearance with the plow mounted.

    im actually thinking of buying some 18" wheels and throwing some LT305/70R18 tires on them. there 35.1" tires 12.2 section width 9.8 tread width. hopefully all i gotta do is a 2" level kit. and hopefully still have room between the truck and tires when it comes to the weight of the salter loaded
