I have a 2014 ram 2500 diesel and it's time to get some new rubber and I want to go up to 35x12.50s. I believe it's better to level it if I run 35s but thought I'd ask first. If I do has anyone had any bad issues with just using a spacer and getting it aligned or is it better to run the leveling kit that comes with the new shocks and coils?

I have a 12' 3500DRW and run that size tire. I just added the spacers and did an alignment with the new tires. Never had any issues.

No leveling kit? Just spacers on the duals?

i have an 05 and without the leveling kit 35's wouldn't work on mine. I did the coil and shocks kit. I also had to put blocks in the back due to the bro lean.

Yeah I'm just looking at a 2" lift so it doesn't have that "cali lean" and I pull a lot of gooseneck trailers so I don't want to get crazy

I did 35x11.50's and didn't have to change a thing. That extra inch is going to cost you.

You'll run 35's with a leveling kit just fine. Maybe some slight rub depending on offset of your rims. I would stay positive offset(+18 to be exact) if I were you though, no spacers unless you absolutely have to. Spacers aren't the best option. https://www.customwheeloffset.com/wheel-...o=35&page=7

Guess the topic should've been what's a good size I can run with out a leveling kit? I'm looking at a 295/70r18 with the fuel wheels that came on the truck that have some off set the tires on there now come out to be 11.6" wide and still stick out bout a 1/4-1/2"

Bilstein 5100s are adjustable from stock ride height to 2.25-2.5 inches and better than a spacer lift. The shocks are $100-$125 each and I am pleased with them on my Tundra.

https://www.customwheeloffset.com/wheel-offset-gallery/178976/2014-ram-2500-fuel-assault-stock-stock Here a ram with the 295/70/18 setup on stock but he has a positive 20 offset with no rub. I'm guessing by the measurements you said its about a -12 to -18 offset if they stick out that much. Idk if it'll rub or not. Go to an offroad lift shop. Them guys deal with that stuff all the time. Even message these guys on this website online. they give you some insight.

Yeah I couldn't find it lol. Weren't supposed to call me out though lol. I put it off back then cause I bought a welding rig and kinda ran out of money to blow so now that I'm needing tires in the next couple of weeks I wanted to see what everyone was doing. Think it's 5100 blistein shocks just cause I need to do some front end work and 295/70r. I appreciate all the input

While there's a few guys following this thread is there any tires im over looking that are worth the money? I'm looking at toyo at2 cooper st max nitto terra grapplers and the new toyo RT. Going on a diesel that I put 35k miles a year on but need something that's decent Enough to bounce across a cow pasture if it's little muddy
