welcome to the forum. Feel free to use the Search function as well as the 3rd Gen Ram FAQ. you'll find tons and tons of good information answering your questions without having to wait for us to respond. 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.
