275/70/r18 VS 295/70/r18

In the near future I was thinking about getting rid of the stock michelin tires (already seeing sidewall damage and their not willing to warranty), and upgrading. In the process I was thinking of still running my stock wheels, but going to a larger tire to help fill in the wheel well. Possibly a 295/70/r18.

Does anyone have pics of stock height and wheels with this tire size? Also, do you recommend recalibrating the speedometer? or is it not enough of a size difference? if yes, where can I get the calibration done?

Thanks for your help friends.

That seems unusual for Michelin to not replace the tires, in my experience (which is many, many yrs with Michelin as a dealer) they are bar non the best with warranties, they do even protection against weathering where others don't. I think it would be worth it to try an actual Michelin dealer close to you and let them talk to Michelin and work their magic :-)
When they warranty a tire you can even change tire sizes on the new replacements as long as it is still within their MAST lines.

I did go thru a Michelin dealer. Only 1000 miles on the new truck and there is a cut on the sidewall (unknown on the cause). Looks to me like it split. They aren't willing to replace. Only going to give me a partial credit on a new one. So, $180 for my portion installed isn't worth it to me. I'll wait and buy the tire I prefer once/if this tire fails. Not worried about the tire itslef. Wondering about tire size when I upgrade (either BFG or Nitto).

THanks though for looking out ThomasvillePavers
