Anyone one running pro comps on 285/75/16's

Searched, but unable to find any pics except for the 15 inchers. I am wanting to run the 285/75/16 on my 04 rubicon, but wanted to see pics if anyone had this setup. Thanks

If you want to save some serious $'s, since you are buying new wheels, buy 15" wheels and get away from the p-metric tires. You will find a lot better selection of tires at a much reduced price. When i was running 16" rims, i was paying about $250 more for a set of 5 tires than after I switched to 15".

X2 on the 15" wheels. The ride is noticably better with the extra sidewall.

The extra sidewall helps - but also the 16 inch tires tend to be E rated, vs C rated for the 33x12.5x15 .... Plus the 16's wheel/tire combo can be heavier enough to affect unsprung weight.

X3 on going with 15" wheels and tires. The E rated tires are heavy, more costly, and the harshness of your onroad ride will be noticeably stiffer. They work on pickups but no so much on TJ's.

285's measure out to about 11.2". 33 x 10.50's are pretty close.
