    I have a ready lift 2.5" front kit. Can I fit 305/65/18 with out cutting the body mount?? What offset do i need?? What tire do you think will be best! I love the look of the tire sticking out from the body to where you need flares but i just don't know what size to get!

    18 offset should do it but you may still need to do a little trimming just because of the width.

    I'd be prepared for paint dings and scratches if you want them to stick out that far.

    I have 295/65R18 Duratracs on mine, it has @2.5inch lift, only seen slight rubbing on front inside mud flaps.
    At the time I got them I was told if I went bigger, cutting or a higher lift would have been required.

    The one added bonus is I bought a 5th wheel and tire for a spare and it fits in the Spare Tire Holder. Although it is a tight fit :)

    OP, are you interested in pocket style fender flares or OEM type (smooth type without rivets)?

    If you want pocket style fender flares, 18 mm offset is a good compromise so you won't have to cut your truck and still look good.
