Hey guys

Anyone know if you could put 255/80-17's on a stock suspension 3500 cab chassis with CM fendered tow body?

Stock is 235/85-17 so not too much bigger. Worried more about the rear set rubbing together rather than clearance

Any help appreciated


Dave

I would be concerned about the rear pair rubbing insides. I'm not a fan of spacers

I know a few folks doing this with no rub issue.

What tire are you looking at? So far I've only found aggressive treads. Looking for a less aggressive tread for highway.
