Looking for pics of 305/70/16 and 295/75/16 tires

Post pics with 305/70/16 or 295/75/16 please!

Is a 305 tire too much for an 8" wide wheel?

I have 315's on my 8 inch wheels. Works great down to 10# so far.

Any idea why it's saying these won't fit? Is Amazon just wrong?

If you run an aftermarket wheel with a bigger tire you should look for at least 4.5" backspacing. Those MTs are only 4" of BS.

I like the Toyos more than the Duratracs and I liked the Duratracs a lot if that tells you anything. The Toyos seem to be more quiet than the Duratracs were and are just as aggressive looking as the DTs were and much cheaper.

Duratrac 305/70/16 on TKO's. Very happy with the setup.

What did you guys think of the hit on performance with your choice in tires? The 295 on the Toyo is a heavy tire!
