Tires too big

So I have a dilemma...
2016 Ram 1500, just put on 33s and now they run when I turn.
How do I cut the wheel wells safely?

I'm surprised that 33's are giving you problems .

Many of us run 33's or more - maybe your 2016 has some clearance issues that are unique to the application .
Someone with a 2016 will chime in soon to address your specific clearance problems...

Good to have you here.
Rather than mess with the fender liners get a leveling kit for the front of your truck. That will cure your issue.

Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.

Welcome to the club!

What size wheels & tires did you have before? My last Ram was a 2016 1500 Limited and it had 20" wheels and 33" tires. What model Ram do you have? Bighorn?
2016 Ram 2500 Limited, 6.4L/392 Hemi, 4x4, K&N CAI, Diablo Hemifever tuned, 20x10 American Force Big Ten wheels, Nitto Ridge Grapplers, Bushwacker fender flares....more to come.

Check out my Ram truck feature page on Instagram @RamTruckAddicts and submit your truck pics.
