On the road you will be fine. Off road disconnected sway bar you may rub your fenders stuffed. A leveling kit or spacer will fix that though cheap and easy. Your new tire size is only slightly larger in diameter than stock but is wider hence the need for the offset wheels. With 3.21 gears you will probably notice the lag due to the weight increase in tire combo. What tires did you get ? load range?

I looking at Duratracs on Vtec Raptors just wanted some input.

Like the look and don't mind them sticking out.

Compare weight of new vs old Duratracs are nice tires but be leary of heavy e rated tires with your gearing. Good luck.
