Hi, I drive a 2009 dodge Dakota crew Cab Big horn and it is my first car. I'm from the Ann Arbor MI area. Recently, I have been fortunate enough to put a 2" leveling kit on my truck and am looking to upgrade my tires and wheels as well. If anyone has any suggestions on what size tire they use or recommend? and what issues you have come across?

Leveling kits can cause front end parts to wear out quicker, but no real issues otherwise. Stock wheels have an offset of +25, so try and stick close to that offset (A little lower is fine), that will cause less rubbing issues. Any trimming is minor, usually just the front splash guards and wheel well liners, rear tires aren't a problem. Lower offset wheels can cause more trimming to be necessary.
I have a 1.5 leveling kit with 265/70/17 tires, wheels are stock offset (+25).

2005-2011 Dakota tire sizes with 1.5" or 2.0" leveling kit with zero to slight trimming
-265/75/16 (31.6 x 10.4 x 16)
-265/70/17 (31.6 x 10.4 x 17)
-265/65/18 (31.6 x 10.4 x 18)
