dually spacers

If I switch from a 215 to a 235 tire will I need to put a spacer b/w my rear wheels since the 235 will be wider? Or will there be enough clearance I won't have to worry about it?
thanks

I changed the stock 215's to 235's with out any issues on my '95'. The only thing it did was dropped the RPM's at freeway speeds.

Most 235's will be fine without spacers. I'm running a mud-terrain tire and it is a little wider at the side-wall than the highway tires I used to run. I added 1/4" spacers for towing clearance, but it was not a necessity. I just wanted a little more breathing room.

I did the same on my Dodge, the Michelins almost touched, the 1/4" spacer was just enough.
