My guess would be you wouldn't absolutely need spacers with 255 75 17's. I ran 265 70 17s duratracs without any spacers and stock ronin wheels for about a week before i got my spacers. I will admit my feelies on my duratracs were rubbing the steering knuckle, which is a little too close for comfort. Personally you can't beat the stance with spacers. I also had my rough country 2" lift and monroe load lever rear struts. Hope this helps!
