285/75R16's on stock rims?
Hey guys, I'm thinking about switching to 285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grappler Load Rang E tires. I ran an 18" version on my '06 F350 work truck and they were great! The 18's were wider though.
Anyway, I'm thinking about getting 2" Steel (hub-centric) wheel spacers for the duals and then running these. Truck has 4.10's so the 285's will help my MPG a little on the highway.
I'm wondering how "bubbled" these will be on stock dually rims. I want themto wear as well as possible.
Also looked at a 255/85R16 but options are limited there. The only tires available are the BFG KM2's which are more aggressive than I want.
Leaning toward 285's and spacers right now...
'99 7.3L PSD, F250 SRW, BTS, 2.5 Ton Rockwell Axles
'02 7.3L PSD, F350 DRW, 6spd, IH Up-Pipes, 4" MBRP
