    It's a little larger than recommended in terms of speedometer error, with an error of 3.6%. In terms of rubbing, the new tire will be one inch taller and about .7 tenths of an inch wider. Doesn't SEEM like that would rub, but if you want to be sure, have the tire shop mount the tires and then set the car on the ground and see what's what. It's possible you could get a rub but on a truck this doesn't seem as likely.

    But keep in mind that when your speedo says 60 mph, you are actually doing 62.2.
