to be honest I really dont know. My truck came with 17's and I swapped them for 18's. Josh is right, a 285 is going to be 1cm wider than the tires on your truck if the size you posted is correct. So a little less than half an inch wider. Im pretty sure the conversion is 2.54cm:1in.

The stock size is a 265. So going up to a 285 will be wider. If you get any wider, you're gonna start wanting to look at some fender flares because any dirt or mud will go straight on your truck.

Oh okay. My mistake. You'll definitely like them. They're great tires.

Just an FYI Toyo is not producing the open country A/T right now. Atleast that's the case in Ohio. I've tried atleast 4 different tire stores and they all say the same thing. I've heard some pretty good things about the Terra Grappler!

You could go with a 305/55/20 if your looking for something wider. The stock tires are 33" tall as well as the 305/55/20.

I had the nittos on my truck and got 32000 miles out of them. But i put a set of cooper zeon ltz on this week and they are a better looking tire to me then the nittos are.

The coopers was cheaper here then the nittos also. The tire man also told me when he balanced them that all four balanced out too zero and that he had never seen a set of tires do that before so cooper must be doing something right.
