    Just had coil overs installed today.
    Before measurement
    Driver front =36 3/4
    Passenger front = 37

    After measurement
    Driver front = 38 3/4
    Passenger front = 39

    I want to retain the factory TRD wheels and use the Nitto Ridge Grappler.
    I’m torn between sizes, 275x70x18 with 1 1/8 wheel spacers or 285x70x18.
    I’m not sure I could use wheel spacers with the 285x70’s.

    Can someone offer me advise on the selection of these two sizes.

    I would skip the wheel spacers and go with the 285/70/18's. Good choice of tire and suspension though.

    I’m leaning towards the 285’s.
    They are $100.00 and some change more than the 275’s.
    I’m not seeing that much rubber difference.
    But I only want to cry once.
    I would hate to go with a tire too small that I hate.

    Solid reasoning. The 285's will look right at home on there. :thumbsup:

    I pulled the trigger on the 285x70x18 today.
    They are going to order them in and check fitment. If all goes well I should have pictures to post Monday.

    That’s a great looking truck. Exactly the look I’m wanting.
    Do you mind sharing what wheels you’re running and the offset.

    I had ordered Spidertrax wheel spacers when I was in limbo about tire size.
    Does anyone think I could use the spacers with the 285’s and factory TRD wheels without rubbing.

    Gained almost 1 inch of clearance.
    Rubbing on skid plate which is an easy fix.
    Wish I had went 295x70x18.
    Will post more pictures after wheel spacers.

    Thanks
    I’m going to try the Spidertrax 1 1/4 wheel spacers and see how the fit and look.
    More to follow.

    Looks good to me as well.

    The only thing I don’t like about my 295’s is that they are heavier and it did take a toll on the MPG. I may go with 285’s next time.

    OP I think those 285/70/18 are perfect. There isn't a huge height difference in them and the 295's, but according to Nitto's website, those 295's are 10 lbs heavier per tire! Going from stock, the 295's definitely will impact some power and mpg, as they are about 20 lbs heavier than stock tires.

    Not sure how, but the website says my 275/70/18 ridge grapplers are almost identical weight to the 285/70/18 at roughly 58 lbs. If I can stomach the $300 price difference in these sizes, I may go 285/70/18 next time haha.

    Thanks for all the kind responses.
    Still waiting on Fedex to show up with the wheel spacers.
    Meanwhile I removed the running boards. While practical...they definitely didn’t do anything for the looks.

    Thanks for the offer. I had luck with the Spidertrax and I’m totally happy now.
