275/70/17 ????

So I am getting my lift finally. I am going with 5100's at 2.5" and a three leaf pack in the rear. When it comes to tires I am thinking of 275's. Mainly because I dont want to deal with the trimming needed for 285's and I think the 265's I have now will be too small.

Is anyone running 275's? If so what brand and how do you like them?

Any trimming? (minor trimming doesn't bother me too much)

There really isnt much difference in the two tires...maybe 1/2 overall height...and only a smidge wider.

thats good to hear. i did decide i am running the stock wheels just because right now i dont have the money to spend on wheels. just too much going on. how do you like the duratracs, they seem quite popular.

How are you liking these tires? They are 10 ply right? Or Load range E? Did they stiffen up your ride real bad? Gas mileage? power loss? etc?

I'm strongly considering these exact tires on a 3" OME or Toytec lift I haven't decided yet
