285/75R16 or 305/70R16

Which tire size should I get 285/75R16 or 305/70R16? I am going for a fatter/wider look. What's the difference and which do u recommend?

I would go someplace like Discount Tire and have them pull one of each out to show you and then you can make up your mind.

The 305 is 1" taller and a little over 3/4" wider.

You can still get the fatter/wider look with either tire, though. Just buy rims with a smaller backspace #. The smaller the backspace #, the farther your wheels will stick out.
