Anyone run 295/75/16's? Likes/Dislikes

Was thinking about getting some tires in this size. They measure 11.61 inches wide and 33.42 inches tall.

My 35's are exactly 34 inches tall. I was wondering what a little over a half an inch shorter tire will do to my top speed. I'm rocking 5.13's. 6 speed.

Does anyone know of a radial tire that is a full 34 inches high by 11.5 wide??

Thanks

Curious why you choose 5.13s with your manual? I've heard a lot about 4.88s with that transmission and 5.13s with autos.

Found a Rubi complete rear end with locker & 5.13's for a song. The guy threw in his bent front axle which I robbed all the good parts & the near new 5.13 ring & pinion. I love my 5.13's with my 35's. Hoping I wont lose too much top end if I switch to the 295's.

This is the kind of info I am looking for. 33.6 is only 4 tenths of an inch shorter than my 35's. That would hardly be noticable. Super
Nice, so you like those tires. The look a lot like the Toyo mudders. Are you running a 6 speed or auto?? Thanks Jimbo!

Now the 33.6 advertised Dynapros are 33.2" installed and MOST 35" tires end up at less than 34" installed--so it's your call-

Good luck

Those tires look nice on your jeep. They look like 35's. I wish someone make a full 34 by 11 or 11.5.

I checked the Kooks out. I like em. Thanks
