I am trying to choose between the trail grapplers 295/70R17 and 285/70R17 or 285/75R17 and don't know why I should choose one over the other

Thanks
First number shows the width of the tire in mm: 285
Second number shows the sidewall aspect ratio (height) of the sidewall in percentage of the width value: 75

So, for a 285/75R17, you have a tire width of 285mm and the height of the tire sidewall is 75% of 285mm which equates to 213.75mm tall.


285mm = 11.2205 inches wide
213.75mm = 8.41535433 inches tall

So, you can take the wheel size: 17

add it to 2x the sidewall height: 16.8

and can reasonably assume the 285/75R17 tire is equivalent to a 33.8 x 11 x 17 tire.

Yeah, I know... a bit late, but none-the-less.

mpaone1040 thats a great look, I am putting on my rock krawler 2.5 flex in a couple weeks and I want to stick with the stock sahara rims(because I like them), can you tell me what size spacer you are using?

Thatguy93 Love mine but they rub the fender when I'm disconnected. That's with a teraflex 2.5 coil lift and flex arms up front. They measure up to almost the same height as the 35 inch pro comps on our yj.

Will these tires fit on a stock JK ?

I'm looking to put 285/75 r 17 Nitto Trail Grapplers on my Stock JK Unlimited. Will they fit with no spacers or a lift without rubbing ??
01-09-2014 11:30 AM
Vader It will. Tremendously.

Glenntpr01 Palmetto- what kind of MPG youre getting? I am reading 10 MPG.... (I havent adjustted the Speedometer yet with proval or flashcal). I dont know if this would help...
01-07-2014 06:58 PM
Palmetto_MP Here is mine '13 Sahara with 2 inch coil spacer lift, stock coils and shocks riding on 285/65 R18 Nitto Trail Grapplers mounted on Gear Alloy wheels. As stated above, the tires ride great with minimal road noise.

If I understand correctly, the 275/7o-18 will not require any mods?
Shouldn't, maybe some light trimming of the plastic air dam and inner fenders but nothing serious. Should consider a little lift though cause lets be honest, IT'S A JEEEPPPPPP

jj77 Nitto tires are awesome! However...Terra Grapplers hold gravel like crazy! I live on a gravel road/gravel driveway as well. I will sling rocks for 5 miles down the road with these things on my Dodge Ram. I wouldnt get them again for my Jeep because of this. But they are awesome tires. Very heavy though. Didnt mind on my Hemi Ram with 3:92 gears. Dont think I would want the extra weight on the Wrangler. Just my 2 cents.

No I didn't need any spacers, I just added a Teraflex leveling kid. In the beginning I was going to add spacers, but my dealers said that they weren't needed unless I went to a 35 tire.

kpickens11 I've been running 295/70r17 trail grapplers for about 4k and absolutely love their on and off road characteristics. Just enough hum on the highway to know you're driving mts but not too much to annoy you.

They have been wearing great (so far) and have pulled me through some pretty deep stuff off road.

I'm running the aev 2.5 dual sport suspension with bilsteins and can't say enough about the lift. 17" rugged ridge wheels with wheel protectors... I know I haven't dinged them up on rocks yet but I've only had the protectors on for a month

Also these tires measure out to about 33.5" and 11.5" wide. Fit on stock tire carrier with no mods to third brake light. Just had to get the day star bump stops because the stock ones wouldn't reach the tire due to back spacing. No popped welds or problems offroad as of yet but a reinforced carrier or bumper/tire carrier is one of my next purchases.

Can't say enough about Nittos and haven't ever met any other jeep owners who have said otherwise

Your friends probably never rotated them or didnt have them balanced properly. They're good for 50K if you take care of them and keep them inflated properly. Way better than most M/Ts that usually last about 25,000.

Have yet to do any rock climbing with 'em but in the mud, they rock. The KM 2's seem to clear out a little better but I have absolutely no complaints with them offroad and would recommend them to a friend if asked.

On the road, I'd put them up against any a/t tire! I noticed very little additional road noise over the stock tires. A lot of complaints out there about how quickly they wear down but I have close to 5k on 'em and I haven't notice any excessive wear (I'm no expert either though).

If I had the choice to do it all over again, I'd absolutely buy them again. Best looking tire out there IMO. Keep your eye out on sales / prices, I got mine for a hair over $300 a piece (discounttire)and then got a local shop to match the online prices I found (prefer to support locally owned businesses). And take into account you'll need an alignment done when you get 'em put on.

I'm just down in Atlanta and get up to the north GA mountains pretty often, so if you ever want to ride let me know. You should check out Jeepfest in Jasper, GA in the fall. www.sheriffsjeepfest.com Had a blast there last year when I was still stock, so this year should be even better!
Man if I'm ever close down to Georgia ill totally hit you up!! Your rig is sick and hopefully mine is on the way to becoming one haha. Again I really appreciate all of your quick responses!! Thanks again!
