I believe you can get by with 265s on a dually with no rubbing. I have a buddy that has 265/75/16 on his Chevy dually and has no rubbing issues and he tows a goosneck regularly. The spacing on all dually trucks is about the same.

Not true sir.

EDIT for clarity: Not only does it differentiate between manufacturers since they use different offsets in their wheel sets, but it also matters if the wheels are all aluminum, steel/aluminium combo, or all steel.

Paul, have you looked @ the Toyo Open Country H/T? I see you're in Oregon so check with Les Schwab. They carry Toyo tires. I was looking at the H/T & the A/T IIs. I ended up with the A/T II.

Just a thought.

You're probably right, I have never actually measured the offset but I know that dodge, Ford, and gm all have about the same spacing between the factory dually tires. Maybe a .5 - .75 inch difference between them all.

So I took the truck back to Walmart to ask them how to get these tires off and order some new ones.. The manager asked why I wasn't happy. After telling him why, he asked to see the truck.. One look and he said they guys here over inflated the tires.. He showed me only the center 4 inches were touching the ground. (I never really looked) There was 80 PSI.. he dropped each one down to 70 PSI. He said drive it like and see if it's any better. If not, just order what I want and I get a full credit. So, I drove home and did some extra driving.. WOW..these tires are awesome now. No need to replace.
