Well im running the 285 70 17's but with a two inch spacer. I bought those cause people were saying stuff about trimming studs and i didnt want to deal with that. I was really curious if you can run these tires with a 1/4 spacer. I would like to bring the tires in so there not sticking out so far. I may just have to buy those spacers and try it myself.

i have an 05 dually and i have 285/70-17 Toya A/Ts and i run about 55psi and i bought some 1/4 inch wheel spacers and i was ganna put them on before i pulled a camper and did not get a chance to get them on before and i only pulled it 2 miles and the next day when i pulled the tires off to put the spacers on you could tell the tires were rubbing. I put the spacers on and they dont stick out that far.

But if you are ganna do with M/Ts you need a 2 1/2 wheel spacer

Ok well i bought the 1/4 in spacer from DWRAT so i can try them out. I am running 285 70 17's goodyear MTR's. The only weight in the bed at the time of this photo was 4 20inch rims and the weight of having the bed sprayed. Oh and tires had 58 psi. so hope this helps out. Well im having issues attaching this file even after i shrunk it. So ill have to try again.

Hey DWRAT...How much space do you have between your tires, when you have your 5th wheel attached to your truck? I really want bigger tires, but i pull a 40' goosneck all the time, so i can't have the tires touch at all when i'm loaded.
