Default What size tires?

Been talking to Matt about this for a few weeks, and with my news wheels, what size tires would go good with them and the level kit? I know this sounds like a repeat question from somewhere else, but I never asked it, so get over it!

I had settled on 285/65/18, but now thinking maybe 295/70/18? I want to get the widest tires that will fit correctly on the 18x9 rim. But there are not many choices either. Settled on the Terra Graplers.

BUT

Open to suggestions. I'm not planning on getting new tires until next winter anyway. I have goodyear wranglers on there with less than 15k on them, still plenty of life left.

oh nice. thanks for pointin that out for me.

Vin check out the Mickey Thompson ATZ's they are a better looking tire than the terra's see if they have the size you need. Terra's would be my last choice.

they were fast. on average they last 30-35k miles. Not very good IMO when a set of BFG TA KO's will last 45-60k

Im not a fan of any Nitto truck products.
