295s Trail Grappler Question

Hey guys,
I was getting my tires ordered but it turns out that the KM2s are on backorder at the moment...
I have 17" FJ Wheels with Spidertrax 1.25" Spacers not installed yet.

I really like the look of the New Nitto Trail Grapplers. They come in 295s, not 285s.

How much more do you think it would stick out? I am scared that with the Spacers and 295s it will stick out wayyy too much.

Stick with the 285s?
Thanks!

Thanks. I did some searching on that.

Just trying to get some opinions for the 285s or the 295s.
I know AriZonaD54 has the 295s on his.

With the Spidertrax and FJs I'm worried about how wide they will be.

I have a 2001 and I thought you need 4.5" BS to clear. They are like 4.75"

im running 295s without spacers and I have bushwacker fenders and the tires still stick out quite a bit. Those bad boys are gonna have a really wide stance once you get the tires. But these are by far the best tires I've ever had and gonna keep buying trail grapplers. I also had to do alot of trimming including the body mount chop

Thanks for the help. I have been leaning on the 285s because of a lot of reasons but those Trail Grapplers look really good to me.

I am in the exact same boat. I wanted KM2s in 285s, but they are apparently nowhere to be found. My tire guy said we could look at the Nitto in 295 as well, but I just wonder if thats not pushing the envelope a little bit. I need to get some new tires real soon, so waiting is not a good option. Would love to get some more opinions here.

There is a guy that runs 295/70/17 on an 17x9 rim he has a 3" lift and loves them. Im getting the same tire size. you might have to trim a little. its like a 33.2"x11.2" it looks sweet on a 9" rim. i would go for it. great reviews on the tire as well.

Thanks, they are putting them on at the shop right now. My guy said he would trim out some of the plastic just to be safe, but that they will fit fine, and look extra tough.

I ordered 285/65-18 trail grapplers today, and while talking to 4wheelparts, he said they have the KM2's in stock...
