    I've seen this combo done many times before without any modifications to the rims, etc.

    Sometimes you need a 1/8" spacer so the tires don't touch. They are cheap and the studs are long enough that it isn't a problem

    A guy in town has them on a 88-98 Chevy dually and they fit ok. They are very close to rubbing at the bottom where the tires bulges are. I would imagine with any extra weight or a trailer that the tires would rub each other on the bottoms. It looks awesome when he drives in just a little bit of mud and the gap between the duals is packed full... it makes the tire look about a couple feet wide.

    I have a set of 255/85/16 A/T tires on my dually. They are 33" in diameter. They will fit a 6" or 7" wide rim. The truck has 1/8" spacers between the back rims, and a 1" body lift, just to make sure everything clears. I think Dick Cepeck makes a 35" TSL type of tire for duallys as well, which will fit narrow rims on a dually.

    Here is the other tire I was talking about. It is an Interco Super Swamper TSL. The tire size is 9/34-16LT. It is 33.8" in diameter and about 9" wide. It will fit on a narrow dually rim.

    I think that is the biggest tire you can run without major rim modofications.
