Duratrac question

I am planning to switch from stock GY RSA 255-75-R17 to GY Duratrac 265-70-R17 and am concerned about fit. Will it rub while turning? I have a 2007 Wrangler 2 Door. The outside diameter RSA is 32.1 while the Duratrac is 31.7 so that should be no problem. Help!!

If your wrangler if a JK then it will fit but it will probably rub on full locking turn and some when you off road. Not sure exactly but remember that a bigger tire doesn't mean always better. You need that tire to be able to function and not rub against your wheel base under different circumstances.

I wouldn't think you'd rub, it's only putting 1/4" more tire to the inside of the wheel. Different mfgrs. tires run different sizes. If you are really worried about it go measure one in real life, compared to what's on there now.
