I thought I would post pictures and information of my truck since these forums have served as my inspiration and was a great source for me during my shopping.
I was probably going to go with an 18 inch fuel Covert wheel, but when they were back ordered I opted to stick with factory rebel rims.

After some consideration I went with general grabber ATX in 315/70/17. These tires are large and supplier states they measure to 34.5x12.4, however I will get a tape to them to confirm because they seem like every bit of 35” whereas tires like KO2’s in 315s measure on the smaller side at 34. I did have to go with a small wheel spacer in order to move the tires off the inner control arms, seen in the picture below

I went with a Bora spacer and had them custom make them in 1 inch width for me, it worked out great and I really love the stance.

There is no rubbing so far, however when turned the tires come about 3/8” away from the back of the wheel wells where the molded splash guards are mounted on the fenders.

I don’t run adjustable leveling links or spacers(yet), all stock

Let me know what you all think, let’s get some conversion going in here and revive this gen of Rebel!

I think they look really good,can see the extra clearance the larger tires provide. The rake seems more noticeable, but it may be from the pic angle.

I have a white 2018 Ram Rebel with the black out package. I liked the stock wheels, but I went a size taller on the side wall. I put on 285 75r17 KO2’s. They measure around 34” and fill in the wheel Wells a bit more. Look a bit beefier then the Toyos that came on it. I didn’t want spacers or rubbing issues and I think that’s about as big as I could go while staying stock. Only down side is I lost 1mpg and I really didn’t have mpg’s to spare. Whatever, the price of admission for bigger tires.

Yes, It may be from the picture angles. However, I would love to do a leveling kit on it but I don’t think it is worth it to pull everything apart in order to get the day star spacer in there, no shops will do it so it’d all be on me.

thanks for the reply

Yes, good work. I wanted to be able to get these 34.5 and 12.5 wides on so my price of admission was a little more to get the Bora spacers made, however I’m happy to report there is no rubbing in any mode.

There was no rubbing before the spacers either, just too close to control arms inside because of the extra width from stock

thanks for reply
