    I finally pulled the trigger on new wheels and am going to be getting tires in one of the 2 sizes posted above. I've read all the pros/cons performance wise between taller and skinnier vs shorter and fatter, so curious what you guys think will look better appearance wise?

    I am leaning towards the 265/70/18 which will be about 1/2" taller and 1/2" wider than my stock 255/70/18s. The 275's will be about an inch wider but the same height (32"). I am not leveling or lifting. Ideally I would go with 275/70/18's but trying to keep the weight down and they dont have that size in the tire I want.

    What do you guys think? Seems like most people on here have the 275/65/18, but I feel like a slightly taller tire would fill the stock wheel well a little better. Thanks for the input!

    I'm in a similar situation ... Planning on doing a 3/1 level on 20" wheels. I could do 305/55 but I'm leaning towards 295/60 to get alittle additional sidewall. Just hope I won't have any rubbing issues.

    Taller for sure.


    I would 100% do the 295-60's. On 20" wheels, get as much sidewall as you can. I originally had 33" MT'a on my 20's and they looked real stupid.
    34-35's look so much better.

    With some spacers and a CMC you could fit 295-65-20.
