For you guys running 275/70r17 "E" rated tires, are you experiencing any power loss? I have had BFG AT's in 265/75r16 E on OEM steel wheels for 1.5 years.
I am looking at getting either:
265/70r17 BFG AT's C or
275/70r17 BFG AT's E.
for my 6 spoke alloy FJ wheels & eventually my SCS Stealth 6 wheels when they come in.
The 275 is 8lbs heavier (per tire) & 1/2 taller/wider. I do mild off-roading/mudding & I tow a 21' 4600lb boat (total weight with trailer) about once a month. Should I go with the 275's or 265's.
FYI, My wife & I drove to Atlanta (10.5 hour trip each way) & she was fine & slept most of the way. The ride is firm but not bone jarring.
I also have Billies with the fronts @ 1.75 & 3 leaf AAL on OEM 3/1 leafs.
I/m just worried that going to a 275/70r17 may ber overkill.
Also, I am running 32 PSI & with 18,000 miles these BFG's have even wear.
