    Has anybody tried to fit this size tire with 3" lift. Spec wise they are only .4" bigger than 285/75/16 and only .2 wider. They are roughly the same price as the 285's.

    Thanks

    Give it a shot... I think a lot of it will rest on the BS of the wheels you run with them... :thumbsup:

    I'm going to run my stock wheels with the spidertrax spacers.

    im Running 285/65/18 = 32.56; 295/75/16 = 33.42 When talking bout overall diameter. The only issiue i have is my front mud flaps. THEY RUB so im bout to take them off. So i dont see any prob with them fitting if u remove the flaps, but it may be close to the fender well but should fit. O i have the revtec 3" lift with 1 1/4 block in the back.

    Gary- you'll have to let me know how these work (Pics would be awesome)

    I'd love to see a set of 295/Anything R16's on a lifted taco.

    Hey guys, I decided against it, I just picked up my 285/75/16 BFG AT KO's. If I ever end up getting spindles and adjustable coilovers I will go with a bigger tire. But for now and where I live with no offroading except at the beach which I'm not really a big fan of I'll just stay with what I got. This time next week I should have pictures of my build.

    prob good idea. I just took those mud flaps of and im still rubbing just a little so i can only imagine when i go offroad how it will rub. I bought the truck with this setup and im bout to get rid of it.

    Ya, I figured if I bought them and they didn't fit I'd be hosed, I don't know of any places that will take tires back once you mount them. The tires I have sitting in the garage look big enough.

    Yes they fit, With some trimming you might be able to fit the 305 70 16 (slightly wider by .6) this in turn will give you less travel if thats what you are going for but will definetely fill in your wells (might need wheel spacers). 295 the difference in height is coming from your tread, that difference is that the tread is slightly deeper than the 285. Look at the load ratings on 285s vs. 295s, 285 larger 295 not so large, 285 easy to find tire in many brands. 295 not so easy to find and only Nitto, Cooper and BFG make the 295. Usually have to special order the 295.
