    I feel safer taking turns in my truck w/285's then my wifes SUV w/265's.
    Wider stance= better handling. Just make sure you get a tire with good traction...

    ....yeah that can pose a problem but whats the point of getting a discount if you cant even get the tire or convince your parents to get the tires

    It's easy to offer a discount on tires they won't let you buy.
