    I have 285/70/18 and will probably go 295 next time. I'm running a bit of a sketchy offset (+0) so I wanted to make sure fit would work.

    I don't think much difference between both as far as mpg. I went from 33x12.5/18 to 295/70/18 (pretty much a skinny 35") and mpg is about the same.

    Ordered some 285s as well, thinking of the 295s, any issues with rubbing?

    Figured, my tire guy is saying to run 50-60. Told him that’s quite a bit for a Tundra Crew Max. Never ran anything near 50

    Most guys here keep it under 40 psi unless towing

    One thing with those 285/70/18, Nitto's website said they are only like 59 lbs, I think about 10 lbs less per tire. Not saying that you would gain a ton of MPG back, but 10 lbs per tire I think would at least help some.

    i have the 295/70/18 RGs. love them. i run 38psi. I drive very conservatively and my MPGs went from 14.5 to 14.3 but i've only put like 800 miles on em. I did see that the 285s were 10lbs less per tire but discount gave me a smokin deal on the 295s so i went with those. I have 3/1 ready lift. Removed front mud flaps and cut the liner.
