    And not a hint of rub. Gonna do a sway bar delete next I think and see if we can induce some rubbing that way. If not, moar flex I guess.

    No, Amazon actually. I was surprised to see them there, but I'm happy I did, I got 5% back on them for it lol.

    I saw you mention somewhere that you had a bit of rubbing when first installed. Did you ever sort out where that was coming from? I've had 255/85/16's on 8" wide wheels before and thought it looked great compared to 7" width (no offense all of you OEM-wheel guys). I've settled on doing 265/75/16 because I'm not willing to cut into my truck. BUT if I can get away with this tire on a 16x8 with 0 offset without damaging the truck I may give it a go...

    Thanks!

    Looks good! Now you just need to lose the tube steps, lose the mud flaps, get plate bumpers, and put 35s on!

    Front is required for dune running in Michigan, rear is for wheeling locally at the Cliffs insane terrain. Never took them off after things got cold.

    But muh feelers!

    Tubes are only on for the GF, she's too short to get in easily. Especially with the new tires. They come off whenever I go out to do stupid shit.

    Hello all!
    I'm thinking about replacing my tires for tax season with some 255's (liked the KM2's or coopers) and I took a search through this thread and couldn't find anything about the resistance to damage on the sidewalls in here. Where I live in AZ is a lot of high desert with sharp rocks and the 265/70's I have now (K02 load range e) are pretty chewed up. Will 255/85s hold up about the same/better? I will make the leap to 285 if I have to but I really don't have the spare money for both a lift AND tires this time round. Thanks for all your help guys!

    I think it depends more on the tire model vs the size ....

    Cooper St maxx, BFG KM2/KM3, Toyo MT/M55 are all 3 ply sidewall, heavy duty tough tires.
