It also keeps us from having to answer the exact same questions 900 times a week. Again, welcome.

33's is about the biggest you can go without rubbing. 35's will fit with some possible fender trimming, but they'll rub because of the width.

OK, thanks so how wide before they start rubbing? I was thinking 35x12 or even 35x12.50? Also do you guys have an off-road tire recommendation? Thanks again.

I am thinking from going from my stock 265/70-17 to 33/12-50/15. You guys have any thoughts or suggestions. This is a stock 07 2500 four door 8' bed. I am also adding bushwacker pocket style fender flares.

You can not use those tires, 17's are the smallest rim you can use.

would not do it unless you could by a pair for spares. 16.5 would be pretty hard to find in the event you get a flat far from home.

Damn! 15s? Cars use bigger tires than that!

When i had mine with no lift, I was running 305s with no rubbing.

Hmmm I have 305 50R 20's on my ram.... I would think 305 would fit on the 15 as well, but i am by no means an expert, I just tell them to go wider if they can. After 3 sets of tires I am up to the 305...

I have a 2007 Ram 2500 HD and I tried the 35x12.5x17 (equiv 315/70/17) on mine with eagle series 197 17x9 offset rims and it was a no go!!! They would rub while turning so bad, that i would have ripped my fender off. Luckily I already had a 2.5" leveling kit. Even with the leveling kit installed I had to trim a little of the fender lining. There are pics of my truck in the "post pics of your 3rd Gen" section. Hope this helps.
