Hey guys i'm looking to buy a new set of tires in the next week or two and i wanna go with the cooper discover stt's. I'm putting on a 3inch PA body lift and going with 33s my question is on the size what is the difference in 305/70/16 and 285/75/16 except price? i know the 285's are just a little bit narrow compared to the 305 but when i look them up on the tire size calculater it seems like it wouldn't even be noticable looks wise.

some sizes r just cheaper because they r not as common. i ordered some 255/70 17 they r narrow but taller than most "33's" got them much cheaper than say a 285/70 17 that most places have tons of

A 255/70-17 is not a 33" tire. 285/70-17 is.

305/70-16 is ~ 33x12

285/75-16 is ~ 33x11

285/75-16 is a little more common, that's all.
