    Deciding between the cooper stt 275/70/18 and duratrac 295/65/18's on a 9" wheel with 4.5" backspacing, Toytec 3" lift. Specs say that the 275's are only .8" thinner than the 295's. Any opinions or ideas? Pictures welcomed :D

    both of those are fine as far as looks. most run 285s, so that 275 is only .4" narrower....

    get 295's then you can say you're .4" wider than the average guy with 285's

    Yes the weight difference between the 2 tires i'm looking at is about 5 pounds.
