    Got tired of the cheapo steelies and Dunlops that were on my truck, so I pulled the trigger on some new Moto Metal M0955's and new rubber to go with them.

    I considered getting the duratracs this year when I bought tires but they were so new at the time I didn't know anything about their perfomance or durability and there were no reviews to be found. They do look mean for an A/T and a few years form now when I get new tires, those ones look pretty good.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    These are 265/75-16's. Stock suspension. Yes, I do have a little light rubbing now....nothing at full lock, but with the wheel turned about halfway and making a slow turn I am touching the front mudflaps. They clear everything else. I'm going to have to deal with this, either trim the flaps or lift it up above the problem. I didn't start out wanting to lift it, but maybe I'm forced to now. :D

    What size was your stock tire. Are you rubbing because of the new wheel. Lots of pepole say you do not rub with 265/75/16 on stock suspension. What are your mpg's now. I would like to know if there is a change if any. I'm also trying to decide on the right tire size for stock suspension. Do not want to lift the truck and I'm running stock265/70/16 And they look great But there is no M/T tire in that size. Tire sizes I'm looking at are 245/75/16,255/70/16,265/75/16. YOUR Truck looks GREAT

    It looks like he had on the stock Dunlops at 245/75R16 and went with the Duratracs at 265/75R16 with the Moto Metals.

    As far as rubbing the Moto Metals have a different offset than stock so they stick out farther which would help in eliminating any rubbing.

    Don't know what the MPG is yet, only had them on for 3 days now. I'm sure it will be a little worse.

    You're right on the tire sizes. And yes, they stick out farther...different size, different offset.
    Steelies = 16x7, 30 mm offset (I think)
    New Wheels = 16x8, 12 mm offset
    Less offset on the new wheels and 1 in. wider made them stick out farther. They cleared the UCA and caliper, but because they stick out farther they rub the mudflaps. I tried a 16x8 with -6 offset, and they stuck out even farther and rubbed the mudflaps bad!

    Good looking truck. Crazy what new tires and wheels will do for a truck.

    My 265/75/16s rub, but that's because my wheels are 16x10. Eventually, I'll put new billies on all around, but for now, I have a 2 1/4" spacer on the front and did a little trimming which eliminated about 95% of the rub.

    I just put the same Wrangler Duratracs on my stock rims. I went from 245/75/16 to 265/75/16. Absolutely no rubbing, and I'm still on stock suspension. Oh, and I put the white letters in...
