265/70R16, 265/75R16 & 285/70R16

Hello Forum,

I see a lot of threads on 265/75r16's as a step up from the current 265/70r16's. How about 285/70r16's? Anyone here using these? It's a wider size and just as tall as the 265/75r16's. Just curious.

Also, I bought my 2008 4.0 double cab prerunner 6 days ago & it feels as if the speedo reads a higher mph then what I am actually driving at.

Thanks

I can't really comment on the tires, but I bought my 2006 doublecab prerunner in august, and the speedo also reads higher than what 2 of my navi's are telling me. I think the margin in smaller at lower speeds, but I would say it is about 3 mph different around 70 mph

The 285/70/16 will need a spacer to not contact the UCA.
