Which I'm currently running. Mine are worn out, probably 25% tread, and it's close. I have a brand new tire, put it on just to see, and couldn't even pull in the driveway without it ripping plastic pieces off the vehicle. My front's don't rub, but I've cut most of the front bumper off.
Are yours street tread? I put the same size street treads on for an inspection, and they were at least 3/4" smaller than the 25% tread MTs that I have on it now.
mud tread, 5/32's of tread left, and all I had was the Metal bb from rc. I removed the front of my iner fender to a foot up, but htat was all. With the brand new street tread, I had no issues at all but like you said, they are smaller.
