255/75-17 Hankook RF10's or 285/70-17 Destination AT's?

It is almost time for some new shoes on my FJ. I am running the stock alloys and I have, more-or-less, narrowed my search to either the 255/75-17 Hankook RF10’s or 285/70-17 Destination AT's.
I really liked the 265/75 16's Revo's that were on my 4Runner but they are not offered in either of these sizes.
My FJ has no lift yet and when it gets one, it will be a mild OME, primarily to support new heavy bumpers and all the camping or music gear I will be toting about.
I kind of like the idea of the thinner Hankook 255/75 tire and would be interested to see what kind of difference it makes in mileage and overall on-road handling but the 285/70 Destination looks like a tire not too dissimilar to my beloved Revo which weighs heavily in its favor.
My FJ is my daily driver and road noise and wet/winter traction is a factor.
I'd appreciate any opinions y'all might share with me on this.
Thanks for all your help.
Mike

Re: 255/75-17 Hankook RF10's or 285/70-17 Destination AT's?

I just put a set of Destination A/T's on my stock rig. I haven't had them that long but i have had them offroad, in the rain, and on the highway. Road noise is slightly higher than stock but that was to be expected after using the stock Dunlops. They are heavier than the stock tires, i went with load range D. I briefly looked at the Hankooks but in 285/70/17 instead of skinnier but wasn't quite as impressed. The revo 2's look nice but not quite as beefy looking as the destinations. I plan to lift it shortly and was lucky that they did not rub so far. I have had them in the mud, the tread gets packed but a quick dose of the skinny pedal and they were clear. Hope this helps.

What size Destinations did you get?

I am now leaning towards the Destinations. Although they do not get much love here, Tirerack reviews are quite good on this tire (ony the Michelins rate higher) but I do not know what size I want.

285/70 or 255/75

Looks like about .6 of an inch difference overall.

This is harder than choosing the right lift!

I am also looking at the 275/70/17's that the Destinations offer as well. Egads!

I got the 285/70/17's and they fit prior to the lift with no rubbing. It was close though so depending on your alignment you could have some rub with the 33" tire.

I LOVE my destination MTs.
I have 285/16

I have 35k on them and you can barely notice any wear, seriously.

Get them.
