Dually conversion

I have an 01 F-250 that I am seriously considering making a dually. I want it to be at 4.5 inches of lift on 315/75 r16 Toyo MT's because that's what's already on my truck. I have read that I will need to run a 2 inch spacer between the rear wheels to keep them from touching. So my question is when you run 2 inch spacers on a dually the wheels hang out quite a bit from the flares, if i keep my srw axle will they still stick out and will they clear the frame rail? Thank you.

On a true dually, I think the wheels stick out a couple inches. I believe your srw axles are 6in wider than a dually axle so they would stick way out.

I will let the guys that have done it respond but I know axle widths are different. I think my measurements are from srw compared to cab/chassis trucks, so it might not be truly accurate

White PS Didn't even check the width of my old rearend but I did change it out for a dually rear. and yes I do run a 2" spacer. It sticks out a bit but no problems yet.

Funny part is i had a dana 80 rear I sold along with the front dually adapters. I know the 80 is wider so i figured instead of changing the rear and having the tires hang out why not keep the sterling and have them tucked as long as everything clears...just dont know if they will clear the frame.

Can someone with 315s on a dually please measure from the inside of the inner tire to the nearest object i.e. leaf spring, frame rail etc.
