Tire help please!

I am buying duratracs this weekend and want to make sure everything fits. I have ome heavy springs with Bilstein shocks all around along with 1.5 inch spidertraxx and flattened pinch weld. Will I be okay running 255/75/17 or should I come down to 265/70/17?

I'm only asking because I don't want to order tires and then have them not fit or rub a whole bunch. Thanks for any help!

You should be okay with the OME HD and Bilsteins. You don't have the Hemi and Omelet has HEMI and did the OME HD with 255/75/17 BFG's and they fit fine. You should be good. Just make sure that pinch weld is non-existent. Should be good to go. I didn't know you could get Duratracs in a 255/75. I only have found 265/70.

One last note, the only difference between the 255/75 and the 265/70 is that the 265 is going to be a little wider and shorter opposed to the 255/75 which is taller and narrower.

255/75/17 = 32.06"
265/70/17= 31.61"

If you have anymore question let me know.

Ya they'll easily fit with plenty of room to spare.
