i have an 07 classic duelly the biggest you can go is 235. I've got about an 1/4 gap between the tires. ALso they can touch at the bottom. The problem is when they touch 360 lots of friction. I haul everyday with my truck and the 3rd set of tires. Been good for me so far.

hopefully sell the wheels, tires, lug nuts and 2'' wheel spacers. hell theres over $110 in lug nuts and the spacers ran me $220. there the gorilla brand and use a special socket to take them off. The 265/75/16 procomp X-mud terrain tires have little over half tread left. and the wheels are the XD dually rockstars. i got a little scratch on the front wheel when the tires got mounted, but you can barely see it since i covered it with some paint. hopefully i can get 1500 obo outa them. The problem is, i need new tires to put on my factories before i sell these.

how much do you want for the spacers? thinking about running 265's on my dually. how much room did you have between the rear tires?
