    That’s interesting, I saw somewhere that the maximum width for 255/85/16’s was 8 inches. The coopers are slightly shorter and wider, so perhaps that’s why.

    For 16" rim models, you are correct. The full specs are listed on their webpage.

    Yeah, 8.5" wide wheels look fine with the 255/80r17 coopers.

    Same here.
    I ran 17” skinnies on my 2nd gen with an 8.5” wheel. Never had any issues aired down and didn’t look too disproportionate to me.

    Debating whether I’ll go skinnies again on my next tire or if I’ll give 285s a try on the 3rd gen.

    Annnnndd another one.
    St Maxx 255/85

    These did great in the snow yesterday going up a steep road that wasn’t plowed, almost everyone else was getting stuck lol... I couldn’t even get to the trails because too many stuck people were blocking the top of the road.

    I was able to get 33"s to fit under my bed by just bending out the tabs that secure the spare. It does sit a little close to the exhaust but i figure with the heat shield i should be good to go.

    I know plenty have made the jump from stock to 255s. Anyone transition from 265s to 255s? If so, which tires before and after, and thoughts?

    I finally got my spare 255/85 MAXX spare installed last week. I was able to hoist it right up without having to bend the guides. There is enough room all the way around. I don't know why it was different than other's, but went up fine.

    What pressure are you guys running in the ST MAXX? It has been raining/snowing/icy since I installed them and haven't been able to chalk them. I went to 34 psi and it looks like it finally rubbed the nubs off the tire edges. Skids and sliders going on this week though, so I think I may need to adjust.

    I will let you know. I just had TSB 62-18 done, kinda worried that my truck would have driven better without the TSB and 255’s.
