Isn't the Duratrac 285/60/20? I was looking into this tire vs the 285/65/20 BFG AT/KO and was leaning towards the duratrac because I have 3.55 gears and I wouldn't have to reset my speedo. Let me know if I'm wrong.
But to answer your question, I haven't heard of anyone having to run spacers to fit either one of those sizes. If you are really worried though the Duratrac has 275/65/20 also, for a higher sidewall but a tad narrower.

it will be bad close with the stock rims!
if you feel behind the the top of the tire,you see there is not much space between the tire and upper control arm,the 285 will be wider and may possibly rub,you could always buy the spacer,if you dont need them then you can return them!!!

Running 285/65/20 BFG AT KO's on my truck with a 2" level, aftermarket 20x9 wheels with a +18 offset though. No rubbing anywhere no wheel spacers.

I think my next tire will be the Goodyear MTR, which is what I think is on the Blue truck posted.

Ya you wont need a spacer for the 285. They will fit comfortably. I had and have 305/55/20s on my 07 and now they are on my 11 Ram. On both trucks the 305 did not rub on the suspension so you will not need a spacer with the 285. I had a little rubbing when at full lock on the wheel well palctic crap. I would go with the BFGs over the Goodyears. I have the BFGs in the 305 and I love then , they are comfortable and the wear life is great. Definitely a really good tire, very good

What tires are those on the black truck? BFG a/t? those also look like 18 inch rims? Correct me if am wrong. But I love the look on that black one that is the tire/rim combo I would love for my truck.
