Here is my buddy's truck which i help lift, it has a 5" diesel super lift with a 3" spacer, the diesel coil give an extra 1" lift so it has a total lift of 9" with 36x15.50x18 on a 18x9.25 rim, Mickey Tires and Extreme Alloy wheels dont know the series.
2005 Dodge 2500 4x4 Hemi

Why only 36s with 9" of lift...most people run 37s with only a 6" lift. Still looks awesome but the 39.5s would look alot better on it IMO. And shouldn't the wheels be atleast 11-12" wide for 15.50s?

only if you use it offroad alot Hemion20's


I don't have a locker atm so I'm running a 15.50 on a 9" rim, because I'm not going to get into something where I need to run 12psi to get out of with open differentials, it's just not happening


however, my next set of tires are going to be either 37x12.50r18 BFG MT's or 37x13.50r18 Toyo MT's so I can air down and not worry


however, reccomended size on a 15.50 is a 10" wheel, so a 9" is ok, just not reccomended

it'll pop a bead easier, but can still be done, especially with real bead locks



btw, 38's look much better with 9" of lift on a hemi 2500, especially when the truck's level :D

Well if it's just for show then it should have way bigger tires on it, might as well put 49s on to go to the grocery store :D

BINGO. if they aren't worried about articulation then the bigger the tire without rubbing during full-lock the better.

OR you could do what us jeep guys do and break out the sawzall :rck: sheetmetal is just begging to be trimmed away anyway HAHA



BTW...nic elooking truck, sits a lil lower in the rear by the look of things. needs bigger meats.

We like the more fender gap, you guys like the tires all up in the fender, we just have different style, and this truck is going off-road before my buddy gets his mega cab.

He has his show trucks, he just told his H2 With a 6.5"Lift and 36s, and he has a chevy 2500HD with a 14" lift which has 38 on 20s and now has 36s, this and the other dodge are work trucks for him.
