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
