Will Goodyear wrangler authority Lt265/70R 17 E tires fit my 2015 Ram 3500 DRW?

I need mud and snow tires fast and the only place near me that carries a fair selection of tires is Walmart. There asking $1392.00 mounted balanced and road hazard before taxes. I need tires fast cuz I can't get up my driveway.

From what I have read hear on the forum, it will work, I can't go to wide because my truck is Comercial, DOT..sometimes will get ugly if the rear duals must have a decent amount of space between the two tires, ,BTW,good luck with Wal mart,,my local store won't do a dually,right now I have 245-75-17 and it's just fine

My friend has a set of 265-70-17 BFG Rugged Trail T/As on his 2012 with factory Alcoas and there is quite a bit of space between them. I breifly had a set of 265-70-17 Toyo M55s on my dually and they were much closer (same factory alcoas). I was still comfortable with them but some might be more concerned. Depending on the brand, all 265 tires are not equal width so thats is all I would caution you on.

Also note, the 265-70-17 tires are actually a fraction shorter than 235-80-17s, they are just wider so if you are going for a bigger tire you may not be all that satisfied with them

Hey, thanks for the info. I don't really care if it's a bigger tire, just as long as it will fit. My house is at the top of a ridge, and the drive is pretty darn steep. With all the snow and then mud, I'm having a difficult time getting up here with the stock tires. I also tow a 18k 5th wheel, so space between the tires is important also. I wish there was a tire that would work good in snow,mud, and also fairly quiet on the highway, but right now traction is important. I've used Toyota A/T's before, and had good luck, but I'm not sure if they would be up to this task. I also have the factory Alcoa wheels.

Maybe look into the toyo r/t. They seem to have some pretty good reviews

Looks like I have a few good options from what ya'll are saying. Right now the truck is back in the shop for the same transmission problem, so I've got time to research. When the truck gets cold, like below freezing it won't shift out of second gear. So far they've changed the valve body, and then the Trans control module. Now Chrysler is telling them it's a ground issue. Jeez! Sorry I got off track there, but driving this Ferd Escort is killing me. I need my truck back.

I've bounced between the Cooper STT Maxx in 255/80 R17 and the BFG MT KM2's in the same size.

The Coopers felt a bit more "Squishy" than the BFG's, despite the fact they're rated identically. I'm now back to BFG's this year.

As I have to change out tires every year, who knows what I'll do this fall.

I slapped a set of stock sized Cooper Discovery AT/3s on my truck and I've been nothing but pleased with them. Quiet like the Michelins they replaced but stick like feces to a wool blanket on wet pavement!!!
