tire size

I have a 2003 dodge hemi heavy duty 4x4 with 3.73 gears, and was wondering how big of tires I can go with? Would like to run 33's or 35's, 12 or 12.5 wide.

305/XX/XX (12") up front is about the limit on width, unless your lifted.

don't recommend going bigger than 33" you will have rubbing problems. I had 35/12.5/20 on my 04 with a 2" leveling kit and took them off they rubbed and gas millage sucked

I have a 2500 4x4 2003 myself lifted 6" and run 315/70/17 right now and at full lock they rub the upper suspension bar out front in order to run bigger without issues a long arm conversion is needed which will allow 4" more room by lowering the bars location or 2" steel wheel spacers on the truck which will give you 4" extra room and allow stock arms to clear or 6-7" if you run a long arm suspension all in all if you want 35" tires space the wheels or convert to long arm for a rub free ride
