Hello. I am purchasing tires online to be delivered to an installer here in my town. I own a 2008 FJ Cruiser Base. No lift and 17" factory wheels. (I'm planning on new rims later)
I have Goodrich All Terrain 285/70/R17 on it now. I want to put mud tires on it. I want the widest and most aggressive look. I am looking at the Gladiator X Comp MT. Is 285/70/17 too big? The mud terrains have bigger tread than the all terrains I have on it now...I am confused and I need advice as to which mud tire will fit. I talked to the tire sales guys and they won't confirm.
Is there a different rim size and offset that I can get so I can have 285s?? I cant afford the rims the tires and a lift right now.

Please help. Thank you!!! Wendy :)

I tried fitting Yokohama MT G003 on my TTUE suspension FJ Cruiser, the clearance issues popped up when doing trails so I went back to the OEM size, the MT G003 with its aggressive sidewalls look quite good even though they don't fill up the wheel well.

Buddy of mine had these Pitbull tires on his truck: PIT BULL - ROCKER XOR LT RADIAL


The back tire grabbed a rock and threw it forward into the mirror, shattering it.

Point being, be careful with the wide/aggressive look.

So you have 285/70-17's on it now, and you're wondering if the same size 285/70-17 mud terrain will fit? The difference is so small you will be splitting hairs.

Your BFG's are 32.7" diameter since BFG's usually run a little small (plus who knows where they get this measurement from)
Cooper STT Pro in the same size is 33" diameter.

So you're talking about 1/8" radius difference assuming the manufacturers measure their tires the same. Not very much.

Thank you for your advice! There is so much information out there that it is confusing.

I plan on getting a lift installed later on..I cant afford everything right now. But your information is greatly appreciated!
