tire information requested

I have the 16" Alloy upgrades and am looking to buy tires..i really want to go bigger than the 265 bfg's because i just got the toytec 3" lift..has anyone put 285 75r16 on the OEM 16" upgraded wheel? does the middle track of the tire wear quickly?

I have 285/75R16 and the middle of my tread is wearing quicker than the outside. I also run 35psi in them, so that might have a little to do with it. I run 35 because of gas mileage. Its not so bad that i wish i wouldn't have bought them. My tires are rated for 60,000 miles and will prolly get 50,000 out of them.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

With 285/75/16 on the stock wheel, you will rub your UCA's when turning.

And that was an easy run. Imagine what it would do to them on a more difficult run.

P.S. Air down next time and you will get plenty of grip in the soft stuff.

Hey Willy, you really need to find an aftermarket rim with 4.5 inch backspacing like my Ivan Stewarts. I ran the 265s with no problem on my stock TRD off roads but I would have never tried that with 285s. If you are looking for an affordable rim go to Discount Tire and look for the Gunner 6s MB racing. I sold mine to another member. They looked nice. Heres a pic.

I never keep more than 15 psi. in my tires when wheeling. 5 psi for sand. Didnt look like ground clearance was a problem on the trail you ran. I'll sacrifice 1" for better traction.

5 psi ?!?! ever rolled your beads off or ripped many sidewalls.
None. Keep in mind, thats in sand. No high speed turns, and the like. I knew a guy in Pismo that ran 0-2 psi in the sand. His tire of choice was a set of worn out used street tires. Man, that guy could DRIVE in the sand!

WIth an upgraded UCA ( like Total Chaos, Icon, Camburg) you wont rub. With the FACTORY UCA's and the FACTORY wheels and 285/whatever/whatever's (33's) you will rub the UCA's, and more than likely to the point of being unsafe.

The Gunners do look pretty good. Can you provide the specs on those please?
