Bikenut will become famous soon enough

I have ran both of these exact sizes on my Chevy diesel and 3.73 gears.

I had pretty massive torque and could feel a big difference in acceleration. The worst part about the 315's (BFG A/T) was the handling, braking and most of all, mileage! The 285's were a MUCH more pleasant tire in every regard.

I ran the tires on the same rims (H2 take offs). The 285's were Nitto terra grapplers.

I loved the Nittos but they wear out pretty quick. The BFG's lasted longer but would 'chunk' in rocky terrain.
