    Ok, before people say Search.. I did, and I got MANY different opinions on wheel and tire sizes. So after that, I figure I will just post my exact question to get the exact answer.

    I have a 05 DBL cab TRD with a Revtek 3" lift kit. I am installing Wheelers AAL and 5100's in the rear this weekend. I plan on getting some wheels and tires. Here is what I planned.

    17x8 Helo HE835 (0 offset - 4.5 BS)

    As for tires.. this is the hard decision. I know I will have some minimal rubbing, but I was thinking of 285/70/17 but I can't make up my mind.

    Now I rarely offroad, I am just looking for something more aggressive looking. I drive a lot, so nothing crazy. Here are some tires I was thinking about.
    Hankook DynaPro Rt03 M/T
    Nitto Terra Grapplers

    I want to buy super soon!! So any input would help... as for wheels and tires!

    Thanks Guys!

    If you drive a lot with not much off-roading, I would think you'd want an A/T wheel instead of a M/T. The M/Ts will wear out much faster. What about BFG All Terrains?

    I have been looking at them. I agree with the tread wear, I just want something that looks a little meaner. I guess I will search and see some trucks with these tires on it.

    Thanks for response!!

    I noticed you're from Ohio.

    M/T's aren't your best tire for highway/rainy conditions or snow/ice conditions.

    Thank you... so is my best bet BFG A/T?

    How will those fit with my set-up....?

    check out the Good Year Wrangler Duratracs. They're a new all-terrain tire with some decent reviews so far that look a lot meaner than the BFGs . . . i'm about to buy a set for my 05 prerunner . . . fingers crossed . ..

    go with the nittos, just bought my second set last night after months of thinking it over. They are great on the highway and superb off-road for an AT tire

    I have your exact size in a BFG AT. I have no complaints. However when these do wear out I'll be trying the Nitto's because they get such good reviews here.

    Wow, I really like the Dura Tracs.. those look good, and have pretty decent reviews. I would say it's between Dura Tracs and Nitto's... who has the best prices?

    Nitto's for $189.. that sounds pretty nice. I found Duratracs for $201. Where did you find Nitto's for $189?

    Very nice. I hope we have similar deals in NE ohio...

    Speaking of that... Will the Nitto's be sufficient with the large amount of lake effect snow that we get here? Going to a couple tire shops today... Hopefully I will have something ordered soon.
