    The 255's will be taller than the 285's usually put on these trucks , plus no need for spacers or trimming and better performance on snow

    Thanks. I like 285 but just don't want to chop all kind of plastic up like my buddies truck and don't have money to get new rims.

    so not to change this thread to tires and gas mileage, but the thought of narrower tires never crossed my mind. I would assume that the narrower tire will have a lower level of inertia, and therefore increase mileage. Would this be correct, or am I missing something?

    P.S. the OP's truck looks great!

    :threadjacked:Not if you're comparing the 255s & 285s
    Roughly the same diameter tires the 285 will weigh more so will use more gas. One of the many reasons I went with the 255s.

    285/70/17 is usually 32 3/4
