TOYO Open Country AT 285/70 R17

As long as I get a 3" lift, these should fit just fine, right?

It's down to these, the Revos, or the BFG AT KO's.

Re: TOYO Open Country AT 285/70 R17

Any tire in that size will fit with a 3" lift, although if you do some off-roading you still might need/want to do the body mount chop to make sure there is no rubbing.

Re: TOYO Open Country AT 285/70 R17

I didn't want to chop either.

I was looking at a set of Toyo Open Country MTs but when I found out the only size I could get that would fit a 17" wheel was 295s, I had to change my plans rather extremely.

I'm now going to end up doing a set of Open Country MTs at 275/70/18.

I know that 18" wheels are a no-no off road but I don't think it will be too much of a problem in real world situations, considering my wheeling is pretty tame stuff.

Keep in mind, results may vary. Some have discovered that trim was necessary, others in fact did not. I have OME lift with 285 mud tires, with no trim required. Even flexed, my tires have clearance.

Don't sweat the 18 inch wheels. However, I thought you could get the open country MTs in 33 inch sizes?
Some have gone with 295 MTs, but a chop was in order.

Yeah, I think the 18's are going to be more than fine.

I'll be honest, as new as I am to wheeling/modding, I don't fully understand the sizing standards for tires/wheels. From what I understand, the 285/275/etc. number in the front of a tire size spec refers to the width of the tire. I know that a 285 will fit without trimming on most tires, and I know that a 295 and a few up can fit with trimming. However, the tire I'm interested in doesn't come in a 285/70/17 or 285/70/18. It does, however, come in a 295/70/17, and a 275/70/18. With that in mind, I decided to go with the 275's on 18" AR teflon Chambers (or thugs if I can find some soon).

I also noticed that on tirerack and some of the others, the tire sizes available are listed with some in the 285/70/17 format and some in 33" etc. formatting.

I know what will fit in the first size spec standard, but what can I put on as far as the inches measurement standard?

Re: TOYO Open Country AT 285/70 R17

A 285/70-17 comes out to 32.7 inches, but give or take depending on brand. Usually you'll see 33/12.50-17, which is wider than a 285/70-17.
Why not just get the 285's? If you have any rub at all, it will be at almost full articulation and not bad. I was running 285's with no lift for months with only the slightest rubbing at full articulation. Now that I'm lifted I haven't had any issues. I plan on going to 35's and dealing with a little bit of rubbing, fwiw.

Re: TOYO Open Country AT 285/70 R17

If you keep them on stock rims you won't have a problem with a 3" lift. I think the people that have issues with the body mount rubbing have upgraded to wider rims or rims that have a different offset. I'm partial to the 285/70-17 Nittos myself (same green tire as the Toyos). They have never rubbed and I've even put mine on the RTI ramp recently for a full rub check. Trust me they would have rubbed by now.

Have you considered a 16" rim? If you are thinking 18, you must be getting new wheels anyway. You may find more selection w/o chop and get the width tire you want. JMO
