This thread is an unbelievable resource, thank you all!

I'm wondering if anyone else has put 265/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs on with a 2" front and 1" rear spacer and the stock alloy rims? I'm thinking that it should fit without any rubbing, but I'm less than totally sure. I saw one of yall had Duratracs on but the backspacing was different from stock, and @dakotaff has 17in wheels.

you might have to do some slight trimming on the front on the inner fender or the splash guard. the rear should have no issues at all.

My wheels have the same exact offset and back spacing as your wheels (8" wide and 25.44mm offset). And my 265/70/17 Duratrac tires should be the same size as the 265/65/16 Duratrac, so you may need to do minor trimming on the front splash guard and wheel well liner. A dremel does the job well.

It's also possible that they will fit without any issues at all.

I'll be darned, that is how the math works out isn't it. I think I'm just going to go for it and take a dremel to the liners if need be! I'll post some photos after I get them mounted up. Thanks!
