I'll bump to say I have these and they are great. Just fit into the wheel wells perfectly. Excellent performance. I ran off road the other day on ice and compacted snow. They had more traction than BFG ATs and TrXus running the same pressure.

Luis,

The 285/75-16 SSR will be slightly larger than the 34x10.5-16 LTB. I have run both. The SSR is much more road friendly.

Kevin, John, and any one else - so the 285/75-16 is a true 34" tire when mounted up? I'm looking to go a bit bigger than the 255/85-16 BFG MT's on my 90 but not up to the full on 35". My thinking is, it won't need as much beef in the axle, and extra lift like a 35" tire. I'd probably re-gear tho.

Thank you Kevin and John, I could see the difference on the chart that John posted. The 285 tire is a bit taller and a little narrower, which is what I want actually.
Amazingly, I took my virgin spare 34"x 10.50 bais TSL and stood it next to one of mine on the ground and the spare was an inch taller!!! I couldn't believe they were that meaty when new!

This tire is exactly what you are looking for Don. I often have people think I am on 35's. There is really no need to regear for it living close to sea level. If you lived in Colorado I'd say definitely regear. No need for upgraded axles unless you lock it.

Luis, if you are selling those 34x10.50 bias ply I am very interested and could pick them up, even with a wheel exchange deal depending on what you have or want.

Please email me. evilfij at yahoo

Thanks Kevin - I agree around sea level I'd be fine but when I drive to Western MA and VT I need to shift down even with the 255's. My plan is to lock at least the rear at some point. I enjoy the 255's, stock gearing, and open diff's now but always looking for the next mod

It depends on how this goes, with Ryan's SSR's. I would like to get more information or pics on these before I can take mine off. Do you know what my tires look like? 5th is virgin!
As far as what I'm looking for... I want to stay at 33" to 34". I would like to also try to stay narrow like what I have now. I'm happy with my series style wheels, unless you had a set of nice wolf steels.

Hi Luis,

Please see attached pictures.
I took one pic of the tires stacked in back yard. I have the top covered to keep water from getting inside!!
I also rolled one SSR out and took a few close ups.
Last, took a pic of the Truxus which I am throwing in for the $520 price. It is same size - you can use as spare.

In addition, I got a freight quote. It will cost about $165 to get the tires from Houston to NJ. If you buy the tires, I will run the freight through my company. No worries.

Let me know if interested.

Thanks, Ryan
