Does anybody know the tread width on a 285/75R17 BFG KO2? I know their website has them at 11.3” wide but that’s on an 8” wide wheel. My wheel is 9” wide. I’ve heard each 1/2” equates to .2” of width either way. So does that mean if I mounted that tire on my wheel they would measure 11.7” wide??? Thanks
RSAY, your truck looks great. I have the same tire but a 295/70/17 and they stick out quite far even though my wheels are +18 offset. I am going to do the new Cooper Discoverer ATS XLTs though. Now I know they won’t rub being about a 1/2 taller.
I just bought a 2019 Silverado 2500HD. Turn the keys 4 times each and put on a 295/70R17 Nitto Ridge Grappler with 17x9 XDs. No rubbing at all. Blacked out the windows. Removed the rear mud flap for better clearance and looks better to me anyways.
Love your truck!!! I got my new 17x9 +18 this week and waiting for the tires to get in. I ordered 295/70R17 Nitto ridge grapplers, do you think they’ll fit keeping my 2500 stock height or worse case turning the keys a few times? Want to actually keep the rake since I pull a 7-8k travel trailer. Thanks.
Okay cool thanks. I ended up ordering 17x9 +18 offset wheels, and 295/70R17 tires (33.3”x11.77”). Hope it will all fit. Might give the torsion bar bolts like 2 full turns to get front end up about .5”. I tow a 7500k TT so want to keep the rake.
Yes it was a typo!! Haha. I want 295/70R17, will go 285/70R17s if I have to. I prefer though the look of filling the wheel well with as much tire without rubbing. If you get those tires gearheadesw post a picture! Thanks
