Default Will 35x12.5 tires fit my stock durango?

Sorry if this has been posted before..I'm new and looked in the frequently asked questions and couldn't find what I was looking for. But yeah just a simple question if they will fit or not. Stock 15" wheels. Durango is an SLT if that makes any difference. tires Im looking to put on are 35x12.5's

Not without a 3 or 3+ inch lift with serious trimming front bumper and rear front inner wheel well. most have gone with 31's or32's for stock height. 35's will put some serious stress on all suspension parts

Click the image to open in full size.
35's
3 inch body lift
Cranked T-bars and shackles

So what do yall think about that... Looks killer or not?
To bad they didn't make the wheel well larger and the Suspension stronger when they made the Durango there are more pics in photo album.

Hot damn!!!!



As to answer your question: No they won't fit. You need a lift about 4 inchs. 33's will fit but they rub all over and it depends on where your T-bars are set to. You are better of going to the OEM 31X10.5X15's. Now that size tire where installed with the D's that came with a 3:92 gearing.

Nice picture dro. that thing looks pretty mean =P


Thanks for all the help guys,I'm probably going to just pick up a set of 31x10.5's and call it good for now. a 3" body lift isn't too expensive though is it?

Hey soxpac,
The biggest tire size you can go at stock height is 31 inches 31x9.5 or 31x10.5 personally 31x10.5 looks the best at stock height you will have to get an alignment. If they rub after the alignment let me know and I can tell you how to easily make it stop rubbing. Do you plan to stay with the stock wheels?

Thumbs up

I was going to use mickey thompson rims and 31" mickey thompson baha claw radials. I want to do a 3" BODY LIFT. I dont want a suspension lift cuz I dont want to spend that much. I'm already putting in a Flowmaster 40 series, nerf bars, bull bars, euro taillights, Memphis stereo system, Safri rack and a K&N cold air intake. I am also putting a chip in as well. I hope the body lift makes it look better with the 31" tires. What do you think???? I also appreciate the advice.

Hey BO if you are gonna lift it 3 inches Go with 33's man that would look bad A. those 31's would look small like factory small that you may have know. Dude your "D" is going to look killer. on the chip, it is not advised. You see our PCM piggy backs or overrides the chips, then your back to square one again. Dude I'd go with a programmer + you get more options.

Glad this thread has helped more than one person As for the euro tails...they should stay on euro cars IMO. But to each their own!

What is the largest size wheel you could go with, but still have an off road (Nothing too radical, similar to stock tread) tire? 17", 18" 20"???

I appologize if this is a stupid question. I am not planning on doing any rock crawling, but do do a little backroad camping.

Those look pretty sweet. Would I be able to put the 3" body lift in myself in my garage? Any special tools needed? Or how much would a shop charge?

Also what about without the body lift, what is the biggest wheel you could go with and a lower profile m/s tire?

That last pic with the 22's is ideal, I have 275/45/20's yeah that is at stock height. You can go 24's with low profile tires, flats and skinnys are their nick names. This is not advised because that thin of a tire would not be a good for a everyday driver. pot holes and bumps on the road are their worst enemy.
lowered 2 inches
