So the question is 285/70/17 with spacers, or 265/70/17 without, hmmm, thought I had my mind made up but the 285's just look so damn good.

I vowed when I sold my FJ that I would do it all right this time around with my Taco.

285's are big and the fuel mileage hit will be noticeable as well as power loss unless you regear it.

I am more than content with the 265's and on 17x9 wheels the tires are pushed out and it has a very nice stance.

Every person I have talked to personally regretted getting 265's and ended up with 285's anyway. I bought my previous 265's off a guy that only put 400 miles on them and went 285's. I only put 1500 miles on my 265's before upgrading to 285's. A few guys at America's Tire.. same thing. You'll end up wishing you did if you go 265's judging by your posts.. but make sure you're willing to cut up the truck a little to allow clearance before pulling the trigger.

Depends on your style bro. If you don't need the 285s get the 265s. I had my bald ass 265s on my truck for a few days after the lift was installed and with my 1.5" spacers they still looked pretty good for being worn out.

Good posts guys, I think I would rather have function over aesthetics (for my everyday needs). I may just meet in the middle and do the 275/70's; why not stand on both sides of the fence? Besides oddball sizing, heavier, and limited tire selection, I had 3 pairs of the BFG's on my silverado and got 50,000+ everytime. I can't find another con to that size, just need to make sure and grab an extra.

If youre still thinking about the trail teams, I have them with 285/75/16 and all that it rubbed was the little flap in front of the wheel. It rubs no where else for else, maybe it was because I got enough caster so it wouldnt rub the the back?

Yea everyone is different with the trimming and rubbing, and I don't mind trimming at all, don't know why I'm so indecisive, I guess I've never went beyond a +1 sized tire from stock and just don't want to affect my everyday ride much.

I vasilated for months on what to get and doing it right. Loving my Toytec ULK and the ride. Still getting damn near 20 MPG overall too which is a nice factor as well.
No rubs, good ride and off road capable when called upon. What's not to like

I'm keeping my 265/70/17s. As long as you have decent off road tires I think they look good in that size and you won't have to cut up your new truck.

I run Hankook Dynapro ATm's in 275/70/17 and I think TW member Teamfast runs the BFG in 275/70/17

Because I thought I made my mind up, but keep on reading through TW, I decided to add a poll to this thread to aid, and ulitmately decide which tires I will be adding to my newly ordered 3" lift (with UCA's). I decided to run stock sport 17" wheels and I do not want spacers. A little trimming is ok, and please, don't recommend 285s, not interested, hopefully this will help some other people. Here are the links to each specific tire in order from poll:

I would go with the third choice. You are running a 33" tire but it won't be so wide that it will require extreme amounts of trimming and will probably give you decent gas mileage compared to a wide tire.

255 km2s, duratracs would be my second choice, and probably a more practical choice for on road driving.

Well 75% is on road driving, but the KM2's wouldn't be too bad on road, from the reading, looking like at most a .5 mpg drop with that size, the only question is endurance...
