265's or 285's?

Well I should be getting new tires soon but I'm still debating on what size. I don't know if 265s will look big on a double cab long bed..what do y'all think?

265s look good with a 2-2.5" lift But 285s make the truck look like a tank!


Vote 285s if you don't mind trimming and cutting to avoid rubbing issues

Do you notice any difference or loss in mpg/power/acceleration etc with the 285's? I have the stock 265s and looking to get the BFG AT 285s with Bilstein 5100s at 2.5" lift. Just trying to see if 275 or 285 would be better for my lift and application. haha

Looks good! I think Im gonna go with the 275 because they are $198 each online and I can get them installed for $60 so its a smokin deal plus I won't lose much mpg or torque with them. Id want a bigger lift with 285s. haha

Can't say what the difference will be with 70 vs. 75 but with my set-up I did have to do a little trimming. There was a little rubbing but it was minimal. I'm in the process of getting new coils and dropping the 5100's down to .85 or possible 0 due to the ride quality. At 2.5 you will feel every crack in the road.
