    So there is a big storm coming tomorrow...my tires are toast...need new ones. I gotta drive 4 hours home for christmas. The local shop has BFG AT's in 265 in stock. I really want 285's but still don't know if they will fit without much rubbing, and he won't have them till next week.

    So if I pull the trigger on the 265's should I put them on my stock off road wheels or on my FJ Anthracite wheels?

    If you aren't lifted, go with the 265.

    put the 265's on your FJ wheels. 285's will not work without lots of trimming with only the 1" leveling spacer

    Ehh...Tough choice- I'd go with the tires that will keep me safe (aka the 265s at the shop right now).

    You can work on getting 285s later when it's not a matter of safe driving. If you wait now- You mmight wreck and then not have a truck to put those nice rims and new tires on....

    Typically you'd need a 3 inch lift or some maxed out Billy 5100s to fit 285s...plus trimming.
    I'm getting the Cab Mount Chop to insure i don't rub on anything...I vote 265s

    NumbNutts, Thanks for posting...we have the exact same truck, same wheels and now (this afternoon) same tires! Great minds think alike...

    I probably knew what the answer was before i posted this...but thanks every one for the nudge in the right direction. 285's would have been nice, but 265's will work just fine I think. My work truck (04 f250) has BFG AT's in 265 also...

    Got the 265's. I think the 285's might have fit, but there would be some trimming needed...and that isn't really taking into account any articulation of the suspension... So I think the 265's are the right choice for me.

    And OOOHHHH man are they so much smoother than the rugged trails!!! The tire guy said he put 50 psi in them, and they are so smooth on rough roads!

    Pics tomorrow in the day light...
