New tires for the dually ??

Ok, heres the deal.
Getting ready to put on new tires. I'm going with explorer pro comp xtreme mud terrain. Question. How much space do I need between the rear wheels to fit a 285/75/16 ? The firestone 265/75/16's have a good inch of space between them now. Possible I wont need a spacer ? 2nd question, if I do need a spacer, anyone got a recommendation ?
Need info pretty quick, gotta have em on before next weekend truck pulls.
Thanks guys!

I'd talk to Fred at- http://www.wheeladapter.com/home.asp

From what I hear he's the man when it comes to adapters. That's what Danny uses on his big white Dually.

Re: New tires for the dually ??

Yup, I'll be there. What kinda rules do they have? Can I run the solid blocks in the rear? Almost everyone in the e-city pull that did well ran solid a solid rear suspension. Also planning on adding a fuel pump too.

Thanks for the quick reply, I checked out the site/ sent a quote request.
Hopefully have everything done by sat.

Re: New tires for the dually ??

most pulls down there are just antique (put-put) tractors and then they throw a truck class in for anyone in the crowd that want's to pull. the pull next weekend is a sanctioned pull for the tractors and i'm pretty sure there will be some of the big 4x4 gas trucks...like the blue ford named "yankee". i doubt there will be many rules in your class so solid blocks should be fine. and from talking to you and hearing how your truck runs, make room for a trophy, i doubt the kids there can touch yours. diesel performance is kinda lame around these parts...sucks when i had the fastest truck before swamps got it with 4 pos., afe stage 2 intake, exhaust and nozzels.

hopefully going to piedmont soon, you game!?

Re: New tires for the dually ??

Talked to Fred today, cool guy! Didnt expect to hear back so soon. I sent him an e-mail from the site you posted last night, and he called me this morning, cool! As soon as I get the tires on, we'll see how much spacer it needs, and order some. I dont want to go more than needed and look stupid.
Again, very nice guy, I'd recommend anyone needing adaptors or spacers call him.
Thanks for the referal!

Re: New tires for the dually ??

No problem, glad it worked out for you. I haven't talked to Fred before but everyone told me he's the man. Glad to hear he's such a great guy, I'll pass the word around to a few other dually owners I know.

Re: New tires for the dually ??

Bought my spacers on ebay.

http://search.ebay.com/search/search...fsoo%3D2&fgtp=

I have 295/75/16's on my dually with 2" spacers. If I were to do it over again, I would go with 1.5" spacers. My outside tire sticks out a little from the fender. My $.02 FWIW

Re: New tires for the dually ??

Fred told me any spacer under 2" and you will have to trim the wheel studs. Just an FYI.
