Question 22.5 w/ factory fender flair running board option

So I have decided to swap the factory wheels and tires for 22.5's with 255/70R22.5 tires. I have already bought the tires but I would like to find someone else that has the same factory fender flair running board option to make sure the tires will clear without major triming or how much lift they needed or at least maybe pics of the same setup. On dullywheels4u they say that the wheel and tire combo in a 4x4 with stock suspension clears with some trimming of inner plastic lining of front wheel wells. I rolled one of the 255/70R22.5 up next to my wheel and it looks like it will fit in there but it going to be tight. Here is a pic of my truck with the running boards I am talking about.

I don't think I would have any problems with just the stock suspension setup. But I am worried about clearance issues due to the factory fender flairs and running boards especially in the back. I see some hub adapters that pushes the wheel and tire out of the fender well a few inches, that would be fine since I have the fender flairs but it closes in the fender opening on the outside of the wells about a half of an inch all the way around. Or maybe I can find a good hub adapter that won't push the 22.5's out of the fenders like I see on alot of other trucks with 22.5's. Any one on here have 22.5's to talk about what brand and how much clearance they have?
