Alternate Tire Size

Hi have a 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel with factory 285 70 R17 I hate the toyo open country that it came with they suck on wet and are even worse in winter can I go with 275 70 R17 Or 265 70 R17

Both of those tire sizes are shorter in height and not as wide either. I would stick with the same tire size but switch to a different tread pattern. I have never liked how the Toyo Open Country A/T's have performed in the rain.

For my Rebel owners who have wanted to switch tires I have recommended either the Yokohama Geolander H/T's or the Bridgestone Dueler H/T's. They are not the aggressive tread pattern of an A/T tire but they ride great and handle well in the rain and snow.
My '04 gets down!

+1 on the Bridgestones. Good grip and quiet.
