I never buy road hazard and never needed it. To me it is kind of like buying an extended warranty.

So, I'm trying to figure this one out too; I know the 265 75 16's will rub severely
But, I don't want to go as thin as 245; not many other options with the 16" Duratracs for a stock 1st Gen

Unless I'm missing something... so, I'm interested in what others have to say about this as well
Speak up stock-height 1st Gen folk
Anyone?!

So go 265/75/16 and trim a lot? Get a cheap version of a lift (coils & AAL) -- $300 if you don't want to trim that much? There aren't really any good answers for your issue

That's what I was thinking. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something, like some magically backspaced wheel that would work
Thanks

Nah not that I'm aware of, it's always one problem or another when it comes to rubbing. No real good answer when you want bigger tires

Before I lifted my front end I test fitted my 265/75-16 duratracs. They are on pro comp 7089s and they have 0 offset. (Which pushes they wheel and tire out away from the frame.) The tires nearly fit with the exception of rubbing while turned at about 90%. I think they were hitting the nubs that protrude out from the mud flap.

I raised the front 1.75" which stopped the mud flap rub. Now they catch the little piece in front of the tire that looks like a mini mud flap, but only in reverse while turned at about 80-90%. I'm just gonna cut the bitches off.

Thanks, man!
I see from your stats that you've got a 2013; is this the truck your talking about?
If so, it's capable of fitting a larger tire than my 95.5 - I would probably have to go even taller than that

What size lift do you have? Do you have pics of the truck with the 265's that you could share?

I went with 265/75R16 Coopers on my 1st Gen '97 at stock height. There wasn't SEVERE rubbing. There WAS rubbing at full lock from the fronts.

I removed the front mud flaps and then 20 minutes with a knife and hammer to cut the well liner and pound the pinch weld flat fixed 98% of the problem. After that there was only rubbing at full lock when going over a bump or something.

I was satisfied with the results, but it was further fixed when I added my lift and put the mud flaps back on.

Thanks for the info
I was considering some Cooper AT/3's in 265 75 16
But, I keep getting sucked back into the Duratracs: Mainly, because of their performance in the snow
I've heard of plenty of folks running 265 75 16's on stock height, without rubbing at all; my buddy has some Mud Terrans on his and it only rubs at full-lock
But, (can't remember where) I've read from a couple of folks on here that, specifically, the Duratracs in 265 75 16 rub quite badly on a stock set-up

I think I'm just gonna go 31 10.5 15
I would really like to go 16; and I would really like an E rated tire
But, the amount of extra money I'd have to spend to (properly) lift my truck to fit that isn't very reasonable for me at the moment
