Tire pricing! 285/75r18 or 295/70r18

Looking to replace the tires on my truck in a AT or MT. 95% highway miles but alot of pasture time in spring and summer. Possibly a 35 12.50 18. Looking for the 35" in height or close more than anything else. Would like to stay as close to 300 a tire as possible.
Thanks y'all!

Thank you for the post rdaffin. We would be happy to help you select the best tire model for your needs.

What are your wheel dimensions? Any suspension modifications? What size tire are you running on now? What tire model are you driving on now and what are your likes and dislikes? How many miles are you typically driving per year? What do you want your next set of tires to do for you?

Re: Tire pricing! 285/75r18 or 295/70r18

18x8 factory wheels with spacers to correct for offset. Mine is a 04. 4" lift front and rear. On factory size (265/75r16) now. I drive about 36000 to 40000 miles a year. I have a small ranch that requires me to be out in the pastures a bit. I like the looks of the MT tires and sound is not a issue but longevity is. I am interested in the tires in the 35" tall range for ground clearance and looks. I would prefer not to go over 12.50 in width.
Thanks for your time!

Also the dirt around here is mostly a black gumbo type stuff. It has a tendency to load up tires pretty quick! I also understand there is a trade off on a good cleaning tire versus tread life.

Thank you for the additional information.

An M/T sounds like it's going to be the best option for you considering the type of terrain you face when off-road. Take a look at the Trail Grappler M/T in the 295/70-18 size. This model rides well on-road and does great off-road. Most HD truck owners will see 40K miles out of a set if they are properly maintained. M/T tires aren't the longest lasting so rotation every 5K miles is not a bad idea.
