Looks like these are 2" in dia larger than the 265/75's.


Anyone running these? Any clearance issues?

I had to shave off about an inch of the very inside edge (point) of the front bumper as it was just too close.

I also tied had to screw in my front flaps a little better & tie back a cable, because backing up and turning my drivers side would rub a little.

Other than that, no problems & they look so much sweeter then the stock POS's.

Thanks!


Can't seem to find "E" rated 255's. Anyone make them? (better mileage with E rated)

My brother runs the 255/85's on his truck. They are about as tall as my 285/75's but are not nearly as wide. My 285's look alot better and do not rub. I would stick with the 285/75's.

lol - I think the exact opposite - I don't like the look of fat tires at all - skinny tall tires are an older style for trucks...

thats' what makes this place great - we can all agree to disagree....

I've been running Dunlop Mud Rovers in this size since July. It's a great size tire and it fits nicely in the wheel well.

I think Cooper makes E rated 255x86-16 IIRC.

1baddmax's was the truck I was thinking about when I posted before, just couldn't remember who it was at the time. That truck looks great on those tires...

My wife thinks I'm crazy replacing brand new tires. She's right.

I've been running 255/85/16 mud tires on my '97 for years now. A couple of turns on the TB and they're good to go



Have to agree on the look and the handling.
