265/70'S about the right size with no rubbing?

I was looking through the tire poll on the sticky trying to find what is the biggest I can go without rubbing and without spacers.

I may just dump the 255/75's after all.

Thanks

How big are your spacers? I have 1.5 spider tracks and no lift with stock tires. Adds stability and looks good with the wider stance.

Haven't picked up the spacers yet. Have a 2" lift coming. Have 255/75's at the house. Thinking about unloading them and finding something that doesn't need a spacer, or if I have to run spacers so be it, just no trimming.

I have 255/75/17's with a 2 inch lift and 1.5 inch spacers and trimmed wheel wells. This size tire needs those treatments. So if you want no wheel spacers and no trimming, I suggest you get 245/70/17s. These would be 1 inch taller diameter than stock. You might be able to run 245/75/17's but I'm not sure of that; they are 2 inches taller than stock.

Here's a thread to check out:

Thanks GP. Love the way it looks on yours, just not sure it's a must have for us.

Although it looks so damn good.............

I'll keep poking around. Thanks
