    Hey gang,

    Looking for a mid-aggressive tread tire for a set of 285-75-18s. I don't need anything too meaty as I do a fair amount of highway driving, yet I'm not looking for rollerblade wheels either...

    The two options that blow my skirt up so far are the Toyo Open Country A/T IIs & the Nitto Terra Grappler G2s, in that order.

    What other decent options come in this size? Coming up from a Tacoma in a 16" rim where I ran 285-75-16, I'm surprised at the limited AT options in a 285-75-18 for the Tundra.

    What do you fellas run? Would I be better off running a 33" or 35"?

    Cheers!

    Yessah, that's all I used to run on the Tacoma, but they don't appear to come in a 285-75-18.

    A little more rubber then what I need. I might have to bump to a 35-12.5-18 to bet a better selection.

    If I remember correctly, Toyo RT's come in that size. And I just found out there's a 285/75R18 in that size as well. If they were available when I was looking I'd of likely went with those.

    That size isn't quite as common as the 295/70/18, so not as many choices. I think it's becoming more popular though, but you may check out the 295's.

    What size lift/level are you running or plan on running? If you drop down to a 33, 275/70/18 are widely available in almost every tire, plus much cheaper.

    Running a 3" up front and 2" out back. The truck came with 285/65/18 (~33") Falken Wildpeak A/T 3Ws, which are great tires, they just look way too small to me and don't fill up the wheel well.

    Looks like a 325-65-18 is also a decent option. A lot more options in this size. Only thing is it's looking like the 325-65-18s are ~1.5" wider and on a stock wheel w/ no offset, I imagine there would need to be some trimming due to rubbing...

    I know one guy who’s tried to fit those on a 3/1 and they wound up rubbing the frame pretty seriously, even with aftermarket wheels.

    Pissah...

    Likely lean to the original 285/75/18s or even 295/70/18 in that case then...

    Yea I would go with those two sizes you mentioned above. I might lean towards the 295's, those are a little shorter than those 285/75's.

    Fair enough, appreciate the input.

    I think the 295s might be the winner just do to the greater selection in that size.

    Cheers gang!

    The Nitto Ridge Grappler is offered in a 285/75/18. I run them in the 295/70/18 version and I’m very pleased with them. Smooth, quiet, well balanced on road and they can still hold their own off-road. I’ve also been running them on a 4runner that’s been all over the SW n just about every terrain imaginable and these tires have impressed me.

    Cooper AT3's are offered in that size. I have run them on various vehicles and they have been great. I am currently running Ridge Grapplers this is my second set, no complaints however next go around I will probably go back to the Cooper AT3's.
