I had 255's on for a week and was rubbing pretty bad in reverse.
I did have rubbing issues (in reverse). I'm running 265/70's because I got an insane deal so I figured I'd make em work otherwise I'd do 265/65 or 255/75. My bumper is actually notched on each side because the tread grabs the bumper cover and still does just a little bit. My fender liners are chopped and I am running a 1" spacer up front as well. Measuring the lift, on the rear those springs gave 3" of lift and the front were only giving 2" of lift so the spacer became a necessary thing to solve the raked front end. The tires fit much better but at full lock they to rub just a touch on the inside of the wheel well. Next time around I'm going to a 255 to see what happens.
As well in those pictures I'm not running the spacer; I'll have to post a newer picture up one of these days.
And blackbird; I do need rock rails....badly. I smashed my one rocker in on hells revenge... I had a few guys giving me crap for not having rock rails and doing hells revenge, and of course I finished the trail with a smashed rocker...fortunately the plastic cover protected the paint finish...
