    '06 1500 megacab, 4wd with solid front axle. I'm on 33's right now. What's the biggest size that would work with just a 2" lift?

    Could probably get 35's depending on wheel offset

    Tires for 2" lift?

    I'm on stock 17's. I was looking into the metric equivalent of 35's but I'd like to find some that are closer to 37's in the future. I'd like to be safe from rubbing when off-road also. It's 99% road driven but on the weekend I do like to go out and have some fun.

    Here's a current photo for reference.

    You could do 295/70R17 for sure, which are around 34" tall. 315/70r17 are about 35" tall and close to 12.5" wide. They should fit with a leveling kit from what I hear, but measure to be safe. Turn it at full lock and see how close your tires are too rubbing, then imagine them an inch closer to rubbing surfaces.

    They're metric, but roughly. They looked good at first but now they're looking pretty tiny.
