Its time for new tires. I currently have 255/75/17 Silent Armors. Put about 80k on them. Great tire btw. I think I would like to go with the GY Duratracs this time. They dont come in my current size. Closest is 265/70/17.

Can these be installed on my stock 7.5 inch rims?

Yes. I ran two sets of 265/70R17 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's on the stock wheels before I upgraded to 17x8's and 285/70's

265/70/17 stock rim works?

I've done EXTENSIVE reading on this subject the forum because I'm due for new tires to replace my stock size tires. Net, I don't want spacers. I have a 2" lift I installed, and want bigger tires. It would be great to install 265/70/17 on my stock rims (chrome clad). Several members have mentioned they did this with no issues clearing the bolt on the upper control arm. However, I noticed they had the aluminum wheels, not chrome clad. Has anyone run stock chrome clad rims with 265/70/17 with 2" lift and been happy with the result? Thanks for your input.

There is no difference in the wheels. They both have the same specs. So if you can find a brand tire in a 265/70R17 that will clear the ball joint bolt without spacers then go for it. Back in the day when I was running 265/70 MT/R's with Kevlar there was no clearing the ball joint bolt without spacers. I'm running 305/70's now but have different wheels
