Default Ram 2500 Lift and Tire Question

So I have a 2017 Dodge Ram 2500. I love the truck and the ride. I would like to put some nice custom rims on it but don't really care to lift it or even level it if I can avoid it. I know very little about offset but know I want the largest lip possible. Question is, what is the biggest rim and tire size I can put on with the stock suspension. Can I use a 20x10, 22x10 or any other size. Also any recs on street tires that will fit?

Without lifting or doing a leveling kit 20x10 or 22x10 won't fit only way possible is to run a small ass tire to clear the fender.

35s fit with leveling kit not sure how wide of a wheel you can clear maybe 33s and 10 wides

If you love the ride, don't touch the wheels/tires or suspension. That is what makes the ride nice.

Remember that the smaller(low profile) sidewall will sacrifice ride quality. a 35/12.5R18 on a 18X10 wheel would probably yield the best ride quality. Disclaimer: I don't know what clears and what doesn't on a stock 2017 Ram 2500. My 2017 F250 will clear 35's easy with stock ride height....

One size factory tire is 285 60 20 which is 33.5 dia and 11.5 wide. You can run 35s. Check over at ramforum.com for first hand info. I have a Power Wagon so it is leveled from factory. I run 295 70 17, So 33.5 12.

Leave it as is.. Adding all that aftermarket stuff is going to do nothing but give you issues and void warranty.

Thats all BS wheels tires lift kit leveling kit does not void a warranty there is a actual law for it can't remember the actual name for it I have had plenty of lifted veichles and had to have warranty work done and the dealer neve said a thing about it.

There isn't a law forcing a dealer to repair a vehicle for free once it has been modified from its original specifications by an owner. I have worked at Dodge dealers for 13 years and when a lifted truck rolls into the shop, all eyes are on you baby! Everybody at the dealer knows this warranty coverage rules. No Tech wants to do a warranty repair, it pays them half of book time compared to when customers pay for it out of pocket. The dealer also gets paid a lower labor rate for warranty work than it does for customer pay work from the manufacturer. Its usually 1/2 to 2/3 of their normal rate. Ram doesn't benefit even with a lower labor rate, they pay 100% for parts. So, no one benefits by repairing a vehicle that has been modified by the owner, but the owner. If a vehicle has a warranty issue and its an interior electrical repair or something not lift related you will slide by most likely with no problems. But when the day comes that a steering or suspension component, universal joints, front bearing or any driveline issue goes bad on your dodge, and it will, your warranty is at the mercy of the dealer. If you are in good standing with them, most times you will slide by with a couple free repairs. But it isn't their obligation to do it. If your truck becomes a problem with excessive repairs, they will cut a customer off. They can do it the first time or the tenth time. Its their call, not the customers. If it is denied by the dealer, and the customer complains to Ram, 9/10 times the Dealer Representitive will stand by that choice. The vehicle can still be repaired, but not under the manufacture warranty. The owner obviously has the choice to pay out of pocket. There are many grey areas in automotive warranty repairs. Lifted truck owners demanding warranty repair isn't one of them. It can easily be denied. But with that said, If a vehicle comes in with a 2 inch lift, Its has a much better chance of getting through with no issues. If a vehicle comes in with 4-8 inches of lift. Everybody is gonna notice. I am not saying that a lifted vehicle can not last a long time. But it will be different than stock and the warranty has limitations. I haven't read an owners manual lately but I'm pretty sure it in the fine print under "modification" somewhere. I just wanted to clarify how the warranty process works. I have seen vehicles denied warranty coverage. I have also had lifted vehicles. None under warranty period. But I am not hating on anyone, just trying to help avoid pitfalls. Take it for what it is worth.

Magnuson- Moss Covers the warranty aspect, find a ram or cummins forum and you will see your options. 35's will fit depending on backspacing and offset.

I have the same exact truck and from what i found out is you can put 20x10 with 33" tires with zero issues.The 35" wont fit without a leveling kit.I read about this on several ram forums and it doesnt void warranty!
