285x75 vs 295x70

So, I am still trying to decide if I want to drop the money on trail grapplers. My current tires are 285x75 terra graps.


If I decide to do it, what tire size do most of you think is better? Slightly taller tire, or slightly wider? The 295s are also a tad cheaper and lighter.

Haha it doesn't help that you made it after midnight!

If I had the choice to buy tires again, I would have rather had the 285/75 size...

I got 16" wheels that's why I went with 285 75 16.

It is 1:30 am now

You can always make a skinny tire fat (airing down), can't make a fat tire skinny

Re: 285x75 vs 295x70

I just ordered a set of 16" wheels with 285/75R16 tires to replace my 17" setup with 285/70R17 tires. I actually would have preferred to go 17" with 285/75R17 but the tire choice is very limited.

Re: 285x75 vs 295x70

I love my 295 Trail Grapplers. No issues, no problems. I have a 3" OME lift and bmc. Barely any rub if totally cut wheels...but has never been an issue. Go big or go home!

mods, mods, MORE mods...blah blah blah. The list is too long...it was getting irritating
