I'm running the 255/85-16 which is the same overall size as the 255/80-17. Couldn't be happier with them. Excellent road manners and great traction off-road. Zero issue on stock 7" wide wheels in regards to rubbing, none off-road with the 8" wide ProComp 7069s either. I do get a bit of rub on the flares now with the aftermarket rims when the suspension fully compresses on-road (very hard dips.) I'll run these until BFG wakes up and creates a 10" to 10.5" wide 35" tall MT tire.
