I actually think you may be able to run 265's on the back without spacing. they will be close, but if any you would only need about 3/4-1" spacers .

Get a 1/4" or 3/8" thk spacer and you will be good. No need for longer studs. Just slip the spacer in between the duals.

If your studs dont stick out past the lug nuts now, i think you have more to worry about than the tires rubbing. I would fix that problem first, with the correct dually adapters.

Doing it right usually means expensive.

yea but im cheap and aint got 400 or 500 dollars to buy those thangs. i figured if i bought longer studs and i can make the spacers (i machine thangs) it would work.

First you need to get the inside tire away from the leaf spring. then you will need to space the two tires apart from each other. Just buy the right spacer for the job

I have a 83' F350, I went to Advance Auto Parts got longer studs and made a 3/4in spacer to space the tires.

A spacer behind the inside dually to move it out from the spring. A spacer between the wheels to separate the tires. Longer studs to accommodate everything.

Legally you need 3 threads beyond the lug nut. So figure out how much more you need to do that w your current setup, then figure out how muck of a spacer you will need to clear the bigger tires and add that much more to the stud. You are probably looking at a 2 1/2 stud!
