    Who's got them?? How is the tread wear? I'm debating between the 35x12.5x17's (34.8" diameter, 13.2" wide) or the 285x75x17's (34.1" diameter, 11.6" wide). I'm about to install rear custom 6" alcans, and i have 6-7" coilovers cranked up in the front. I've got 4.56 gears to push these bad boys so power isn't a concern.

    I wheel my truck and these are my daily drivers. YES i know there are rubbing issues with 35's. Anyone having issues stuffing 35's in the rear wheel wells when flexed?

    I have them and love them.They are notorious for getting lots of miles out of them.
    i Have 275/70R18 and the tire barely clears the fender when flexed in the rear.

    x2 on the mileage. I have had two sets. My first set made it 45k miles, which is unheard of in a mud terrain. I just bought my second set and I love them. They get awesome traction off road also. I have flexed the he'll out of mine with no rubbing issues in the rear. I am running 35x12.50x18s. I don't think you will be disappointed with these tires. They rock. They look badass too.

    Good to hear! I feel like these have a little bit of an edge over the Nitto Trail Grapplers. You're running the same size as me basically so it's good you don't have any issues in the rear. How about up front?

    Toyo MTs are so sick... I've wanted a set forever but it is just not practical.

    I personally like them WAY better than the trail grapplers. The front has plenty of clearance also, but I do have 5100s up front to give a little extra lift. They wear really good as long as you have a good alignment and rotate them often.

    Not only do they look great but they perform well too :D I definitely have to fork over some serious cash, but i view it as a worthy investment

    Yes they are louder and those mt suck I had them on my truck I didn't even get 30k out of them. The bfg mud terrains are way better or the hankook ones.

    I think they've improved the rubber they use. I know they're really hard to get right now, which means they're moving the factory. I think I read somewhere that currently these tires are being make in the US

    Can you fit the 285/75/17s with a 3inch lift?

    I have Hankook MTs now and they are lasting forever. I put 20k on a year and they are getting louder as they wear down though..typical for any MT. I'd like a little bigger tire.

    I wouldn't with a 3". I had 285/70/17's with my 3" and they rubbed a bunch with articulation. the 285/75/17's are a full inch greater in diameter. i think they make a 33x11.5x17 though

    I totally get what you're saying. I've been to rausch creek a couple times now :D I would like bigger tires than my 33's because i have the clearance and my 4.56 gears are keeping my revs pretty high. a larger tire will help bring that down a bit

    How long did you have the trail grapplers and what specifically did you not like about them? Or is it it just a looks thing?
