Will 3/8" spacer be enough?

I ordered a set of Goodyear GS D3's and they came earlier than expected. I just measured them and they seem very huge. I have heard that most people get away with 3/8" spacers but I am concerned. These tires seem wider than most 315's I have run into. Right now I am running the FR500 10.5's in the rear. Heck, they almost don't look like they will fit on those, sheesh. Is anyone here running this combo?

Spec's on the tires:

Thanks.

i put some 335's with no spacer and i still have some space left, but i have a solid axle so that gets me a little bit more room. Just mount them up and see if they fit and if not just get a spacer.

Are you using spacers?

I am getting doubtful. I just got done mounting up the MM round head bolts and they really don't give you that much extra... Right now, I have 1/4" spacers in there and with the round head bolts, I can't even get the tires and wheels on there without the 1/4" spacers, especially on the right side... I need a little vote of confidence to make this happen....

Anyone?

With the button head bolts and 3/8" spacers. They Fit! And they actually fit pretty well. But what I have noticed is the right side is tighter than the left side, also meaning that the left side sticks out further than the right. Has anyone else run into this?
