    just curious if anyone has pics of their truck with 265/70 R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers???

    These tires are a great price compared to the 285's so I am just curious how they look.

    265/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers for about $120/tire....Moto Metal 957B 17x9, I have minor rubbing with full turns, on the front and rear, inner edges of the fender, probably due to the 11inch rim.

    the 265's are a little too narrow for me. looks too much like stock imo. just got the lift parts yesterday so ill be throwin those on soon. gonna go with the moto metal 951 blk 17x9 with the nitto tg at's 285/70/17 or the 295/70/17. the 295's are cheaper but im not sure if i can clear them.

    I agree...the 265's seemed too narrow. I like the tires to stick out a little from the fender flares. Mine stick out about 1 to 1.5 inches.

    I wish they made a decent 275 but I cant find any that I like. Discount tire only has the Goodyear wranglers and they are no where near as durable as the nittos.

    My thoughts exactly...I was hoping to get 275s, but since Discount didn't have Nittos in the size I wanted, I went with the 285s. The rubbing was lame, but I trimmed it away. I'm happy with the 285s.

    I haven't measured, but my 265's definately stick out about an inch. I need to take some better pics sometime.

    Total chaos lt in front , icon aal in back, Hannemann front fenders ( painted stock white and painted the roof black at same time), window tint thats not to dark (i had to get the last pair taken off they had to find a ticket for something...)Afe cold air intake, Alpine 102 deck, kenwood eXcelon KFC-X1730P componets, alpine s-12 shallow sub behind the seat pushed by a rockford fosgate mono 400 wt amp, Grillcraft black grill (re powdered flat black), and just installed the LCE header.
    ive been trying to find some nitto tg 265/70r17, and the Lt265 is around $200 and the p265 are $140. the p265 are suppose to made for a passanger vehicle, does it make a big difference? which should i go with? a 60 buck difference whats up with that? i dont want to be running a cheaper tire that will just give out in the long run. if it really matters im planning to run these tires with some 17x9 moto metal 909s.
