Yes, but from the back it looks a little funny with the tires not being centered to the mudflaps.

None yet, I have heard they do ok in the snow for mud tire. I would have gone with the Coopers but I got the KM2's for $280 a tire at Tire Craft. The ST was $330 a tire I think.

I ordered a Trailcutter R/T for a spair tire. I think it was arround $250, It is less agressive than the KM2 and 8ply insted of 10ply. Looks to be siped a bit.

No mod rquired to fit a 255 as a spair, but I do not have a tow package on my truck. Not sure but that may make it a little tight to fit. On a second note the KM 2's work ok in the snow, for general driving conditions. They worked awsome in the heavy wet stuff offroading. They dont turn taht great unles you give it a little gas.

I ended up deciding to go with LT275/70/17 C rated Hankook ATm's .

I decided to wait to go to 255/80/17's until I am comfortable regearing my truck

Mine wouldnt fit without cutting those two metal tabs under the bed. And even then the spare has to be angled in and pulled toward the hitch to fit. It hits the leaf spring hanger on driver side and less than 1 inch from the exhaust pipe on pass side iirc
