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!

Default Jmr

Ordered from Steve with jmr last month. Keeping 3inch body and adding the 6in suspension its paid for and ordered. Steve told me of a Canadian truck with 37s with my setup. Only difference was dirt logic coilovers and a spacer. My goal is to run 37s we shall see

Exactly the thread I was looking for! I just bought a 2009 Dodge Dakota SXT 4WD Crew Cab Bighorn/Lonestar with a 4.7L V8. Stock suspension and no lift kit (can't afford upgrades). It has P245/70R16 and I want to move up to P265/60R18 eventually. Based on the first post of this thread, sounds like that shouldn't be a problem. If someone has an SXT Crew Cab with P265/60R18's (stock, no lift kit, no suspension upgrades) I'd love to see some pictures. Thanks all.

I bought a truck with a leveling kit. And had it about 2 years and every 15k miles I gotta replace the front end about 700 worth. Gotta take this crap off the truck. But there is 265/75/16 k02 on it now. So I'm afraid if I take this off the tires will rub so bad. .. stuck in a bad spot. Maybe a body lift next year but the only thing about that is I tow from my bumper

Love the SRT wheels, great choice.

I see the 20 inch wheel setup is not in the first post, maybe it's somewhere in between, but here it is again.

3G Dakota tire sizes with factory lift
-275/45/20
-265/50/20

3G Dakota tire sizes with 1.5" or 2.0" leveling kit with slight trimming
-285/50/20
