H@LP w/TOYO OPEN COUNTRY MT 265 or COOPER STT MT 285 ? ? ?

So I've SOLD my Rim & Tire set up for an upgrade. Just wanted to go a tad bit bigger. However I'm stumped and press for time in making a decision. So here are the 2 choices I've narrowed it down to based on price and size.

If I were to go 265/70/17
I found a deal for the TOYO Open Country M/T for $180 Mounted & Balanced OTD Per Tire

If I were to go 285/70/17
I found a deal for the COOPER STT M/T for $195 Mounted & Balance OTD Per Tire

I currently have the SAW 2.5 w/TC UCA & Rear TSB as my current suspension. I will be getting a ALL PRO Rear 3' Leaf Pack soon. I know about the trimming thats needed for the 285's.

I'm just looking for you guys to help me make a dam choice. Its been hard already to narrow it down to these 2. The price is very reasonable after checking all day.

Thanks in Advance.

Hmm, between those I would go with the Cooper 285's. The 265's would look to narrow in my opinion.

Myself, I just bought the new Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's in 285/70/17 today. I can't wait, these tires look awesome.

I just got Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/70r17 117s for $160 a piece including tax. I saved money on the installation by doing that myself. check this link https://www.onlinetires.com/cart.php

I prefer the 285s..but I don't think you could go wrong with either because the aggressive sidewalls on the Toyos make them look wider than they are imo

by the way, I pretty much had to cut half my fender liners off in the front and trim bout 3 inches of the bumper corners just to get the 285's to stop rubbing and thats after I raised it 2 1/2 in the front. Still love them and glad I went this size

Go with the 285 they look much better than a narrow tire.

I've always liked the Toyo's, heard a lot of good about them. But they are frickin heavy!

I ran 35's toyo MT's on my previous truck and will echo the comments about them being heavy and what also should be mentioned is that they are SOFT.

Wear too prematurely... Softer the compound, the quicker they wear.
Albeit, they worked ok in the winter because of that softness..

I would never buy them again if that helps.

I've had 265/75/16 STT's on my Tacoma for about 1,000 miles so far and love them.
