295/75 16 ko2-

Anyone running these?

If so any photos or thoughts on the size? Worth going to these over 285's?

THanks!

295/75 (33x12) vs 285/75 (33x11.5) 295s are a little wider.

Can't really compare two different brands when choosing sizes, a 285/75 km2 is different than a 285/75 duratrac.

I agree, the listed sizes are a nominal size. The manufacturers websites often list the true dimensions as well.

Are you looking at these sizes for performance or proportion to the truck?

At 33" tall, The 12" wide tire may look better proportionately.

Yeah the specs show the 295 is not only a bit taller it is also a bit wider than the 285.

Just curious if it would be worth the extra money. I am just wanting as large a tire as I can get without going to a 35. So it is more looks/clearance off-road. A little goes a long way in tires.
