275/75/17 Is a odd size, market is prob limited in that size. If you are going with a 3" lift why not 285s?

good luck finding any, 265 or 285 will have a much larger market. if you're really set on 275s tho you will just have to search.. online or stop by local places

265 and 285 is the width of your tire.( 10.43in. / 11.22in. )

as you can see its a small difference but that is going to be your main issue with trimming, not hight. if you stick witht he thinner 265s you run less of a chance of needing to trim and wont take as much of a hit to your gas milage.

do you have 16" or 17" wheels?

No worries, it's better to ask then make a mistake. You will have to trim, but it's not as bad as you think.. I'm running 285/75/R16s and I had to do some trimming.. But nothing noticeable... If I were you, get 285/70/R17s, with a 3" lift.. There's tons of guys who ran 265/70/R17 with A 3" wishing they went with 285s instead.

i had 285 on with toytec coils, but have 265s on now because i need a temporary solution for rim/tire problem. 265s look tiny on a 3in lift, but the only good side is that there is no rubbing. go with the 285s and do the little trimming, you won't be disappointed.

Ill be getting some 285/70-16 which is hardly a 32 but much more room for play. I think they're a perfect happy medium. What lift you got/ are you getting OP?

285/70-17 = 11.22in. wide by 32.71in. tall

A 285/75 would be same width but 33.83in. tall, if i did my math correctly.. im on my phone.. sounds to me like you're looking for a 285/70...

There will be a much much bigger market in that size too

Good luck bro

That you'll have to research yourself.. i don't like to speculate and I've done no actual trimming myself.. i do think youll find a lot of people who run the 70s have little to no trimming.. and they're good looking size. That would be my suggestion.
