    Ok so the tires I want to get are 265/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs. And the Rims I want to get are ATX ARTILLERY TEFLON.

    Question #1

    The 265/70/17 Duratrac specs say they fit a 7"-8.5" rim and the Atx Artillery rims are 17x9. Will they work together????????

    Question #2

    The rims are 4.5 inch back spacing with a 3 inch lift would I need to get an aftermarket UCA such as Total Chaos. Or should I be ok with my stock UCA????

Glassworks fenders and bedsides. Home fabbed bed cage. King 2.5x16 bypass shocks in the rear. DMZ long travel rear end. Race radio (2meter). Removed secondary carbon air filter. Exhaust dumped before the axle / no muffler. Phram fresh air cabin filter. K&N replacement filter, After market stereo, Grillcraft grill, custom fabled roof rack with 7" HID's, PRP race seats.
    Question 1: They'll work but may look a little goofy because the side wall of the tire will be pressed out further than the tread surface.

    Question 2: 3" inches of lift is a bit much with no UCA but true enough you do not need it unless you absolutely want your alignment specs to be the same as now. You will lose a little caster and the truck will feel like it wanders on the road.
