New Meats (285/70/17)

So I went with the 285's (32.75). I really like the way they look and I do not have to worry about any issues with rubbing, MPG, or my IFS. And, because they will fit an 8" wide rim, I have more options for aftermarket now. What do you think of the shoes??

Nice,..

Why my I ask did you not go for 33's, say 295 70 17's or 34's 295 75 17's? Both tires are .4in wider

Looks Good !!

I went with the Toyo A/T 285/75/17. They look good and fit good, without any rubbing

I wanted to go with those tires, I have always had good luck with Coopers and the 50,000 mile tread warrenty was hard to pas up. My choices were 285/70/17 or 315/70/17. I am happy with my purchase, any taller and I wouldn't be abole to go into the parking garage at work.
