Anyone running 285/75/17 tires

Looking to get new wheels and tires for my ON ORDER JKURX. I have Black Pintlers ordered... My plan was to go with 285/70/17's as recommended by many on this forum.

What's the difference between 285/70's and 285/75's.

Sorry for the newb question... Just wanna get the best look and stance.

ALSO what lift or leveling kit would be recommended with this tire/wheel setup.

get the 285/75's they look much better. I have Toyos Open country at2's. Ride smooth and have been great in all kinds of conditions. The only thing I have not been in is deep mud. I had the 285/70 but after a week they looked too small. Here is mine and my buddies 2014's. His has the 70's mine the 75's. they look in person looks even more evident.

Wow the 75's look great, do you have a lift... I assume your running spacers?

2" aev lift and 1.5" spider trax spacers which give me just about 1/2" less backspace compared to the pintlers. I am the odd man but I like the stock rubicon rims and I like the pintlers backspacing so this was about perfect for me.
Not sure if this will work but click on the photo to see how they go in snow.

Actually I also like the Rubi Rims as well. I really like a clean look without going much past the fender flairs. Are the 75's wider and/or taller?? I'm looking to ONLY do a teraflop leveling kit at the moment.

taller by 1.1" and narrower by .2" according to the manufacturer (toyo) but in person they look taller by more then an inch and as wide.

Thanks. I'm sort of interested in the 75 series now. So much info on these forums... My brain is about to explode. Haven't even taken delivery of my new jeep yet! LOL.

How is your gas mileage and performance? I'm reluctant to do 35s (315/70R17s) since mine is mostly a DD. I imagine being a little shorter and narrower you'd get some mileage closer to stock tires. This seems to be a good compromise.

I have an auto with 4.10's so performance is good and mpg is pretty close to stock. Right now with winter blend fuel I am 15-16 mpg around town and 18mpg or better on highway at 65-70mph. Mine is my DD (I put about 20000 miles a year on) but would not go down in size even if it meant 22mpg. These are very comfortable on the road and even tho people will tell you that e rated tires are rough these are not. I run about 28-30psi on the road and drop down below 20psi off.

So the 75's only come in an "E" rated tire, which has a thicker sidewall with more plys? And the 70's are a standard load (SL) with a thinner sidewall? I'm still trying learning this tire stuff...

That's good news about the comfortable ride. Are they wearing good? I've seen the AT2s come with a 65k mile warranty.

75's are called the extreme and only come in E load. the 70's come in both C and E. I have only had the E rated and swear by them. The C load in 285/70-17 has a tread depth of 13.4/32nds and the E rated in that size has 16.3/32nds and the 75 version has 17/32nds. there is a big Toyo thread you might want to check out. The Extreme version has a beefier side wall tread as well as beefier lugs. you can kind of tell in the photos of the spare I posted. both are e rated. The c rated 70 series has shallower tread and side lugs.
