I'm happy with tire performance in all conditions including pits with deep mud. The only thing I don't like is the treads hold stone for the first 10k miles.
Those are slightly bigger in OD and narrower than the 285/70R17. I assume no lift and no rubbing right? And for the record, what's your gear ratio?

it's the stock tire for the 18" wheel. wouldn't rub. also the narrower tire is better for towing.
