    Anyone running these on their truck stock(no lift or leveling kit)? Pics of you are would be great. Have a 19 Pro and thinking about putting a set on and don’t want to change factory suspension.

    I would get 265/75/16 before I got 275/70/16 especially on a Pro. If you're feeling a bit bolder you can go for 285/75/16.

    I currently have 265/75/16 on my Pro and like them but I am probably going up to 285's on the next go. It's too bad they dont make 275/75/16 because that would be a great size for the Tacoma's.

    How much of a difference in gas mileage/ handling did you notice switching to the 75’s vs the stock 265 70 16s?

    im about to get some KO2s and the price is way less per tire going with the 75s...

    They are priced a lot higher than 265/75R16's.

    BFG KO2's 275/70R16 $234
    GY UltraTerrain AT's 265/75R16 $167

    Negligible. A lot of the perceived difference is from your speedometer being slightly off from the larger tire. Also comes down to Gas type, PSI, etc. and all kinds of stuff.

    275/70-16 is a shorter tire than 265/75-16 unless skills have severely eroded over the years.

    Why would you want to run a tire only 0.5" taller than OEM but wider over a 1" taller tire that's the same width as OEM? I would think unless you spend a lot of time in the sand that you'd want the extra height over the width, and as stated before, the 275/70 is a much pricier tire than the 265/75 option.

    I’m in the same boat here. Are u gonna lift your truck to get the 285s on your pro? I still have stock tires and deep in the rabbit hole of deciding/researching.

    I think with the additional stock height and wheel offsets the pro is probably okay to puts 285's. The lift would probably provide peace of mind. I would do that before I started doing CMC or any heat gun work.
