  • What size KO2's

    Hello everyone. I have a 2012 2500 with 295/70's on it right now. It has a 2 inch level and Katla wheels. What's the biggest size I could go up to? And does anyone have any pictures?



    Thanks

    It all depends on how much rubbing at full lock you can live with. A 35x12.50 is going to rub at full lock, but other than that there shouldn't be any issues. I went with the Toyo A/T II's in a 285/75/17 because I wanted to be able to run chains in the winter with no concerns.

        I'll be interested in hearing your feedback. Considering the same, or Katlas, on my '16 PW.

              have to see how the trim rings will look. I'll put them on tonite. They came in a dark gray/black finish, I might paint them to match the gold on the truck.

                The spacing is perfect. AEV sure knows what they are doing.....

                No rubbing either ! Stock suspension with rear air leveling system.

                      I have been working on a 4 link truck myself. Here's the link to my build: http://forum.aev-conversions.com/showthread.php?t=10872 I just looked at my build page and realized that I should have put more recent pictures up. The 2012 should be like my 11. Some aftermarket arms from Thuren or Carli, trim the pinch seam behind the inner fender, heat and remold the inner fender to give yourself more room and you can roll on 37's. No rubbing, no problems, an off the shelf programmer may be able to allow you to change the air pressure's and tire size. I used a Banks programmer. It's relatively easy to get larger rubber under these trucks, but keep in mind you can lift them, 1" or 12" and the inner fenders need to be moved back in to keep the tires from rubbing.

                        So if you are running a 37 on your 4-link I should be able to run a 35 no problem? Here is how the truck sits now on 295-70-17's

                          I think so, but as I understand it, the leveling kit moves the wheels closer to the inner fender, you may still need to trim or add new control arms. The aftermarket arms are 1/2" longer to move the wheels forward again.

                            Put 30 miles on them last nite and this morning... Ride is definitely improved. 55 psi probably helps, but I was only running about 60 before. Shop talked me into trying "balancing beads" for the first time. No wheel weights, they just add a pile of beads inside the tire and they self balance the wheel. Seems great so far.....

                              Finally got the color-matched spray paint and painted the trim rings to match the belt-line...
