    Im looking to pick up a set of Duratracs and am having a hard time deciding on size. I've got Fox shocks up front giving about 2.5-2.75 of lift, and I'm deciding between 265 or 285. The 265's are listed as 31.7 and the 285's 32.8. I've been reading different stuff about the actual sizes being a little smaller than whats listed and was hoping that anyone that had a set could chime in. The 265's are obviously cheaper but theyre also lighter which would save on the mpg a bit. I'm just afraid of them looking too small. Any thoughts?

    With that amount of lift I think you will be doing a lot of cutting for 285's. I have 265/70-17's sitting in my garage waiting to be installed on my wheels, and I can tell you they look quite large for a 265 tire. I measured them to be 32" tall, and over 11" wide.

    A mid travel lift has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with what size tires you can fit on your truck.

    A lifted truck still has it's tires limited by the same exact thing as a stock truck....the bump stops.

    The bigger the tire the more rubbing regardless of what size lift you have.

    I know someone who has a 3" of lift and 1" of body lift that still rubs his 285's.

    I currently rub 265/70/17's on 2" of lift.

    Caster is more important in regards to rubbing then a lift IMO.

    Where are you rubbing at with 265/70/17s? Front mud flaps aside my 265/75/16 Duratracs didnt rub when i was at stock height.

    As far as your question OP id just go with 265s in a Duratrac thats what i have with my 3" of lift and it looks fine.

    Mud flap area....and mine are trimmed so much there is next to nothing left.

    Every truck is different and like I said caster plays a large role in rubbing.

    Who gives a shit what a truck looks like if he can't pull out of his driveway without rubbing his fenders off?

    Function > Form

    My truck is mainly used in swamp land and driving through sugar sand. Never once have I gotten stuck for lack of floatation that a wider tire would have helped me out of. Never!

    Unless your going to cut the cab mount, trim fenders, remove mud flaps, etc...285's "IMO" are for posers.

    Quad X, what are you running 265/70r17? This is good to hear, as I'm down here in Florida where there is nothing but deep swamp and sugar sand. The stock Dunlops are...OK at best off road. Thinking on 275/70r17, all stock, hopefully

    They just pulled my truck into the bay now to put on a set of 265/70/17. Will know in about 30 min if it was a wide choice or not

    YES they do look much better but it's much heavier and you'll loose a bit of power. too bad you can't get c range on a 285's.
