    Alright so I've decided to get Firestone Destination M/T tires. I have the toytec ultimate lift. I know most people run 285/75R-16's with a 3 inch. Right now I'm running my friends 305/70R-16's BFG M/T's and I am really growing fond of the wider look.

    So what do you guys think: 285/75R-16's or the wider 305/70R/16's

    I guess I should have updated this thread long ago. :p

    I went with the firestone 285's. Like them a lot.

    There was no rubbing when i had on the 305's. The 285's rub a bit at sharp turns.

    What is the backspacing on your wheels? I'm wanting to run 305's (Hankooks) and I'm not sure how they will fit. Thats funny that the 305's didn't rub at all and the 285's do, being that they are a skinner tire.

    Yeh the 305's were 50% worn to but even so. I have a 4.25 backspace.
