Questions on New Tires
Researching a new set of tires for my truck, have debated between BF Goodrich TA-KO2s and Michelins ATs. Have had BF Goodrich TA-KOs and have been pretty pleased with those except one tire that has a small leak through the sidewall and keeps needing air. The only thing I think I might like about the Michelins is the smoother ride but they aren't as great with the ratings in snow as the Goodriches. Plus, I'm not sure that Michelins on a D90 would look quite right.
That being said the KO2s look like a fair compromise and look like a great improvement over the previous model tire. Now, my question is should I stick with the 265/75/16 size or perhaps go with 285/75/16?? I'm running the original freestyle wheels, I've researched on the forum and have found that if I go with the bigger tire I might need to adjust the track rods to prevent rubbing and also that no adjustments would be necessary.
I think I would like the extra height/presence of the 285s and am not interested in future lifting, extra mods, etc. to make it work. Would like to know if 285's would be basically plug-and-play or if there is more to be done in which case I think I might just opt for 265s. Thanks.
