    Two questions: 1- Is anyone running Wrangler Silent Armor's in this size?
    2- Who is running tires this size? (non-mud)

    I had BFG MT's in this size and they butchered my MPG BUT I found a great deal on the Silent Armor's in this size. Wondering who is running similar, results?

    1.6" Eibach springs, 5100 billies set at 0.85, AALs rear. Toytech LR UCAs. 255 75 17 tires on the way.
    As soon as the shop is done installing my new lift today this is exactly the tire I am getting. I also got a great price on this tire and size. I was told that the tire I wanted (which was much more expensive), the 275-70-17 was not recommended with my 7.5" stock wheel. The 255/75/17 is only 0.3 inches shorter and I have rune the Wrangler Silent Armors before on a previous truck. They look good but they ride great.

    I just put this size on my truck. I think they look too big on my rig, but I couldn't pass up the price of the Silent Armors in this size. I only have 100 or so miles on mine, so it's too early to comment on the tire except that they are quiet.
