285/75/17

I have seen plenty of trucks with 285/70/17s but not 75s.

What is the difference??

I think that the 75s are taller but a little narrower, correct?

I think that a set of Terra Grapplers may be in my future!

Sweet.

Do you think I would have any rubbing problems on a stock 06 F250?

I run 285/75/18's on mine, it's leveled and no issues with rubbing. They are actually 35x11.50x18.

On 285/75/17's they would be 34x11.50x17 and I would think you would not experience any rubbing.

I run these on my stock wheels as opposed to 35x12.50's so they don't heat up the sidewalls with a heavy load.
