    I love them. I have a 3in Toytec lift and I can't solve some vibration issues , so I"m going back to stock or close to stock suspension. I will probably have to run 265/75/16 . The coopers are around a 33x9.5 or 10.50.

    What kind of MPG are you getting with those tires? How loud are they? How are they in mud?

    visually...from the side you wont notice much difference between a 255/85/16 and a 285/75/16 but from a head-on perspective you'll notice the difference in width...and the height difference is enough that it could create a rubbing issue on fenders

    They do real well in mud. I hunt alot and our land is very messy with prairie mud. I wanted a good tire for everyday driving and for hunting. No complaints.
    Don't really check gas mileage. I only Have 3k miles on truck. No louder than most at tires.

    With my lift, I have never rubbed at all anywhere. Most rubbing issues are do to width and these are definitly not wide.
