Default 35" tires x 15" rim on a '98 Ram

Will a 15" steel wagon wheel rim clear my calipers and bolt on. Also, can I clear 35s with some minor fender/bumper trimming and a 3" lift. Thanks

Thanks, I've seen 33's on stock Rams, so I'm thinking they will with some trimming

I put a 2.5'' leveling kit on my '97 and ran 35''s. You can buy a leveling kit for less than $100 and it takes about an hour to put in.

With a leveling kit and 3in body its close but will fit 35's. As for the 15"s Mine had to have a crazy offset to clear the TRE.

im runing 38.5's with a 3" body lift and 3/4 ton springs ( about to inches of lift ). so about the same as a leveling kit. I'm running 15 inch wagon wheels of an old 80's ram. i rub with the 38's but i have no issues at all with the 35's.
