Well, after finally receiving the tires from Rugged Radios today, (thanks to FedEx 8 day service), I now have stock 25 X 10 X 12 tires with stock rear wheels mounted up on the front now. I used 1 1/2 inch spacers, and could have gotten away with a pair of 1 inch spacers. I was worried about rubbing the nub sticking out on the strut. I now have 1 3/8 inch between the tire and nub. There is no other clearance issues at all. I went up to 51 1/2 inches wide on the front now. Long trips now will only require one spare tire to be carried. After mounting it all up, I went for a little spin around the estate, and could not see any turning differences in the snow.
