Wheel/Tire question

So I bought a set of Weld velociti 8 wheels thinking they were 16x8 inch, long story short I found out they are 17x8.5 inch. My only problem is that they have a 5.14 inch backspace and I don't want to to run wide tires. My questions is which tires would look better the 295/70r17 or the 285/75r17? Both in the toyo mt. If anyone has pictures of any of these tire sizes on an OBS powerstroke or info that would be great.

Those two are so close, you will not be able to tell the difference between the 2.

If the Toyo MT are such garbage then what is a good tire?
I disagree with this statement. They pull good in the mud, they wear great for a mud tire (as long as you keep your psi in check and rotate every 5k miles), they are pretty quite for a mud tire, and they look good. I have had a set or 2 and I am figna buy another set.

To the op, I agree that you will not be able to tell the difference in the tire sizes.

Yeah I do and a couple of my buddies have ran them. Everyone buys them cause they are cheap. They don't compare to my km2's I've been running for the last two years.

Toyo mts look like garbage too
