I would use the same size tire and mount them the same way.

If you are not wearing into the metal you have nothing to worry about!

(My $0.02 worth)

I agree to a point. I mounted up a new set of truck tires on my 4600 this summer that rubbed just a little on the spindle. It wasn't a problem until I ran over the road and the tires with just a minor rub turned into a crazy violent shimmy at road speed that bounced them about 6" off the ground and shook my teeth. I turned them around to get clearance and they are fine now. It was definitely an unexpected result for sure, but turning them around gave me more than 1/2" of clearance and they look totally correct and drive great.

he said they were rubbing.

if they are rubbing.. it's gonna wear the tires.. and eventually the metal. heavier the load, the more rub happens.

dishing won't hurt the axle. will load the bearings and hubs a lil more. big deal.. they are a replaceable item.. AND it's an industrial machine with a more hd axle than normal designs.

it's a non issue
