285's regular cab

Was looking at the toyo 265 then noticed that the weight of the tire was 58lb and the cooper descoverer stt was 59lb. How do 285's handle? Powerloss with the 2.7L?

But compared to the toyo which is the same weight in 265's I wonder how much it would effect the mpg powerloss.

The toyos are a heavy tire! How is the truck going up hills on the highway? How much did you have to trim

Ya I've read that the toyos are heavy. I have the discoverer stt
On hills I down shift or I have a running start.
No highways here.

Did minor trimming of the inner fender liners.
