I've researched this question up and down but can't seem to find a direct post on point so I thought I'd throw it out there. Thanks in advance to everyone for any advice.
Basically, I'm trying to figure out the pros and cons to purchasing 275's vs. 285's - specifically, Goodyear Silent Armor's 275/70/17s vs. Nitto TGs 285/70/17s for a 2.5" - 3" lift that I'm going to install. These will be mounted to a set of XD revolvers, so backspacing won't be an issue.
I guess my questions are:
1) Has anyone with 285's been able to keep their front mud flaps?
2) Am I looking at significant trimming with 285's?
3) Has anyone had both sizes and what did you think?
