Tire Width Help / 15's , 17's ( 285-70, or 33-12.5 )
Hello, just curioius on your thoughts..
I seem to notice when your have a 15x(8 or 9) most people go with a
33x12.5x15 / duratracs or similar
but a 17" seems like more go with a 285/70/17 ? just curious why the 11.5"
versus a 12.5" wide tire on a ( 17x 8 or 9 )
I have a set of 17x9 with about 4-1/2" BS - ready to get some tires for them,
local DT - today told me 285/70/17 will look great, and if i don't like em, they will take them back ( within 30days ) and order me 33x12.5x17
285's are readily available in Duratracs, alternate brand 33x12.5x17 - they can get me at the same price - ( ex: Fun Country II's D-C )
-- any concerns going with the 12.5 ??? I have a 2"AEV level kit
