I have 265/70/17 Duratrac's, the specs for that tire calls for a 7-8.5 inch wheel. I think they look great at 8.5 wheel , I hate when a tire is mounted on the wrong size rim.

Nice looking truck!, I just bought mickey Thompson on 17x9 (xd series) wheels, but planning to put 265/65R17 instead of the MTZ's, which are 265/70R17. did you have to install a lift or leveling kit?. I might be selling the wheels/tires and getting 8" wheels instead if I need to lift my truck.

Did you have to take the mud flaps out because of heavy rubbing, or just because they look ugly? Mine are touching a set of road bumps just in front of my son's school. All cars go through them with no problem, only my truck makes a hell of a noise when the mud guards touch the road bumps.

I took them off within 5 minutes of getting the truck home haha. Can't stand the look.

A lot of people trim a few inches off the bottom of their to prevent what you're describing.
