My 2011 Outdoorsman came factory stock with 275-70-17 Goodyear Wrangler AT's. I have been researching what Light Truck tires are available in this size and it is very limited - mostly Goodyear, Goodrich & Firestone. Much more available in the 265 size but a little less in the 285 size. I will most likely go for 285-70-18 as there are more choices available and you do get a bit bigger tire - this is the size I would recommend.
