285 70 17 perfect size?

I'm looking for some opinions (rather then my own),

If your 285 70 17s worn out would you go bigger?

Since 285 70 17 come in sl load ratings, all terrain tires range for 43-50lbs. Every tire size larger 285 75 17, 295 70 17, 315 70 17 all weigh 54lbs or more! The goodyear territory mt tire(new to the market) in size 315 70 17 weigh 54lbs.

Is going larger worth a 10lb+ heavier tire?

I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. Just ordered 255/80/17s.

Interesting reading...

I come across and read that article every couple of years. I always leave wanting to go tall and skinny. I have an irrational fear of getting stuck in sand, though, as about 75% of my wheeling is desert where anchor points are few and far between for self-recovery.....has anyone used a Deadman ground anchor? If I'm going to get stuck, an inch or so of width probably wouldn't help though...

Hoping mine show up this week. We don't have much sand here but in the low country they do.

Cool, post up some pics - maybe before and after with rim offset info

These were my 2nd choice as I could not find Ridge Grapplers. So far I'm liking how they drive and hum is barely noticeable. Much less than the mud tires I had before. No BMC and no rubbing.

I just did a ton of research on combos for my incoming lift upgrade, for me personally I went with 285/70/17 BFG KO2ís in C rating. Iíll be 2.5/1.5 and with a weekend trail trip a month. Seemed like the perfect compromise for what I do.

If you don't drive on the highway - go as big as you can. If you do, stick with 285 max because balancing is harder and shake at speed is more noticeable with 33 plus tires on 17 inch wheel.

I just replaced my worn out 275-70-17 KO2 E rated with 285-70-17 KO2 C rated yesterday. All was good until I got home and did a sharp 3 point turn into the next door neighbors driveway to turn around and got a terrible rub. Then into my driveway and another from the other side. It is on a steep hill.

Not a big deal. I removed the 1-1/4" wheel spacers I had and now have plenty of room.

Since I no longer do hard core off-roading and am recently retired so no more 65 mile commute each day I can trade off the heavy E rated tires for slightly larger C rated at half the weight.

I have 285/70 R17 BF Goodrich KO2's and I think they look the perfect size if you have lifted your 4Runner
