dually tires, need advice

Need tires for truck in sig. I would like to go as big as possible for stock height. I may be lifting it 2" in the near future.

I'm thinking of:
Nitto Terra Grapplers
Mickey's ATZ
Toyo M/T or A/T

in 265/70/17 or 285/70/17 load range E. Will I need spacers? I currently have about a 1" space between the stock tires.

I burnt 300 mile off yesterday. I drove about 50 miles but my tires went 300. Its your fault. Something about headstuds and 190's makes them move.

265/75/16 is the biggest tire that you can run without spaces. anything bigger you'll need spacers to keep the rear from rubbing.

Thanks guys. My truck is an '06 with 17" rims. Not sure of the width, I think they are 7.5" if that makes a difference. If I need spacers, any good source?

Tires for a dually - go to the tire dealer, open your wallet, and say "help yourself".

I just priced up a set of Goodrich AT's for mine. Yeowch! Looks like around $1400, by the time it's all done with.
