I can't decide which tires. Taller or Wider?

Hey guys!

First off I know this is not for a Tacoma since I sold my truck. But you guys are so much more helpful than any other forum I have to post it here. I am a member on a couple F150 forums but for the most part no body replies to threads or posts pictures lol.

Ok here are my choices if you guys can let me know if there are any pros and cons going with either choice I would appreciate it.

275/70/18 (33.15x10.82) Taller yet skinnier
305/60/18 (32.40x12.00) Slightly shorter yet wider

Here is 2 pictures to reference the look of each. Thanks for your guys input!


275's


305's

I don't see much of a difference. You're talking only 3/4" difference in height. I say go with the 305's.

I might get bad rep for saying this but, I think that F-150's look good. Especialy with lift and tires. I would go with the 305's they look really good.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Soft terrain = wider

Hard terrain = Taller

Hmm... so maybe the 275's would be better because I could always air down and get a wider foot print.

Yeah, but being as there is only 3/4" difference in height, I dont think it matters.

Can't see much of a difference from the side. I would go with the cheaper tire or the one that you can get easily. I have a 18 rim on my Tundra and they just don't make many tires for it. Both look good.
