    285 KM2's on stock billies
    I ran 285 KM2’s on stock truck. Trimmed a little plastic. Rubbed just shy of full lock. MPG dropped 1 MPG but that wasn’t adjusted for increased diameter so it was probably a wash. Drive about 120 miles a day 5-6 days a week. The e rating with stock billies was what killed it for me. Shocks couldn’t dampen the heavy MT’s. I have 4.3 gears which was ok. Cruising in 6th was good. Had to downshift to 4 or mash 5 (285’s) where I could power through 6 with 265’s.

    Just put on 265 SL’s now and love how it rides, hate how not knobby they look.
