the TSL 36 x 14.5 x 16.5 are right at 36 inches tall. i think it would be too tight with only 5 inches of lift - i do not know how far back the 5–inch skyjacker will pull the axel. the 36 x 14.5 x 15s are only 35.6 inches tall. but even these would be tight. i don’t know what your budget looks like; but before i spent the cash on tires, i would put on the 3 inch body lift and then get the tire that you will be happy with for several years.... if this is not an option, i think you are better off with a “tall” 35 inch tire.
95 RAM, 1500 SLT 4X4. 5.9L Motor. 3 inch body and 3 inch suspension lift. Running on 35 x 12.5 x 15 BFG ATs with 4:56 Gears
my 36's are fine on the street..and they are not too big for the lift at all...so i dont think u know what your really talking about lol...and minor rubbing. i guess just like any other truck would be with big tires
If I had my choice between a 35 BFG or Procomp and 36 swamper I would take the 35's without a doubt, 1" is not much of a differnece in height on the truck, but there is a huge differnce between driving on BFG's or Procomps and Swampers, I personally would sacrifice a 1/2" of ground clearence for nice riding tires, unless your gonna wheel the dog piss out of the truck.
i have a 5" skyjacker w/rear springs and a 3 inch body lift. i put a leveling kit on the front and an add-a-leaf in the rear. i'm running 38.5x14.5 16" thornbirds on 16x10 inch wheels, and they don't really ride that rough unless they are really cold. oh yeah i don't have any problem with rubbing. :lol: i think that i could of possibly run 42 inchers. maybe in the future when these tires wear out.
