with duallys, the issue becomes the distance between the rear tires when loaded, not how tall they are. Level a single wheel truck, and I can clear 35's on my red truck... the stock 235's rub the front inner wheel well liner on my dually, but it has baddly sagged springs too! Go much over 245's, (I've heard of people getting away with 265's, and no loads) and the side walls of the rear tires are going to rub when you load the truck... you'll need spacers between them. What's the problem, you ask? Sidewalls rubbing will wear thru them, and cause a blow-out.
