    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    So before I pull the trigger and switch from a 275/65/18 to a 285/75/16 I wanted to see if anyone regretted running a 33. I have icons up front and 5100's and new leafs so I know they will fit with more trimming. Just wanted to know if you guys would recomend any other size. Gas milage is not a major concern, but performance offroad is the primary reason for the upgrade. Really would like to ditch the 18's for something with a little more sidewall. Most of my offroad driving is in the desert or up in the mountains.
    Thanks and sorry to post another what size tire question.
    Let the :crapstorm: begin.

    Wait so do you have 18"s or 16"s? You wont regret going with 285's cause thats what I have on my 18"s and I love them!! I dont off-road very often but I have been in some crappy places and the truck did just fine!! You will see a decrease in gas mileage though.:eek:

    Sorry should have clarified. I currently have 18's and thinking of switching to a 16. From the tire size tool here it looks like the 285/75/16 is almost a inch taller. Pretty sure I'll need a cab mount chop.

    You might be able to get away without chopping your cab mounts but if you do a lot of off-roading like you said, might be a good idea for the chop.

    Thanks for the reply! Id try it without first but rubbing kinda drives me crazy and I always like a excuse to wrench on the truck.

    I ran that tire size and loved it. I had the 16 inch off-road wheels on mine and it was great off road. I didn't rub the cab mount too much so a chop isn't necessary but I was planning on getting it done anyway.

    The 285/75/16 correct? What wheels were you running?

    Yeah and I was running the stock off-road wheels (the ones on the TRD OR's).

    Yeah he really has some quality products! Assuming I need the chop that's where I'll start
