biggest tire size on stock Dually?

I'm needing new tires for my 2000 Dually, What is the biggest tire I can run with the stock rims, no lift, and without running spacers on the back. I'm thinking about some 265 or 285's. Pics would be great. Probably going to put on a leveling kit on it at the same time.

I have been told that a 285/70/17 will fit the third gens without a spacer but it is close. While I was messing around with my 315's they would fit without a spacer if there was no weight on them at all. The wheels touch while sitting on the ground. I don't know about the second gens, though.

I have been looking for the same information. I have a 2007 3500 dually. stock size is 235/80/R17E. would like to go to 265/70/R17E or 285/70/R17E BF Goodrich all-terrain t/a. Dont know if that will work or not without the spacers. Any help would be appreciated.

You can fit a 255/85R16 on a 2nd gen dually. 285's need a spacer.

just gonna throw this out there I have a stock 03 dually in the same boat as you.


I went with the Rickson 19.5"s 265/70/19.5 they are the perfect size tire for the truck.

for a 2nd gen I would run 255/85R16, there is some were on here a 2nd gen with the BF KM2 the look good.

I have 265/70R17 on my 3rd gen NO rubbing problems lot of gap, but they are shorter then the stock tires. I'm looking at getting the BF KM@ 255/80R17 for it.
