So after debating and doing about as much research as I could handle, I ended up going with the Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrain. I went with the 305/65/17 to replace my original 285's, and kept the stock wheels and tire pressure monitors. (Which all still work even at 50psi)

I got them at the 4wheelparts.com shop in Oakland, which was nice because they had the same pricing as online, but the convenience of having a local shop in case anything ever happens and I need them serviced. Pro-Comp was also having a Buy 3 and get 1 free deal so I went for it. The tires are noticeably stiffer but hardly louder, which is nice and I am looking forward to seeing their off road performance. I'll post some pics when I get home along with my spare 285 for comparison.

Cheers

Did you have to make any mods so these new tires wouldn't rub? I'm thinking about getting the BFG T/A KO's in the 305/65/17 but not sure if they will work or not without any mods.

great choice. i have had mine for about 1.5 years. 25000 miles later i still love them. they have gotten a little louder, but thats probably my fault for not rotating them properly.

i put mine on the stock wheels, and i have had no rubbing issues whatsoever. no leveling kit or anything. they are a great replacement tire for someone who doesn't want to lift.

No rubbing issues, I do have a leveling kit so I didn't think they would have a problem since people have mounted bigger tires without a problem. I am pretty happy with my decision and everyone that knows these tires, thinks they were the best choice for my needs.

Do you have any pics? Or could you snap a pic and put it up so I can take a look at what your 305/65/17's look like

actually i forgot that i took these this weekend actually. these aren't the best for showing off the tires, but they will give you an idea. they were taken at a place called 3-corner. it is where nc, tn, and va meet.

Those look great. Just to clarify...you didn't need any mods and have no rubbing issue at all? If that's the case, you may have sold me on that size.

Why are you running them at 50psi? That could account for a great deal of the stiffness.

Agreed, I would think PSI should be around 35.

stockers should be 35 psi, I had my 35"s aired up for street driving at 40psi, nice smooth ride, but before off roading or desert running, I'd air down to 35, and on sand air down to 30... Now I am running 305/70R17's Nitto TG's (33.98" tires) those are aired up to 38psi for street driving, they provide a nice smooth ride and no stiffness being felt... if you have your's aired up to 50psi, IMO that's gonna be a bit stiff... try airing down to 45 and 40, check out the ride difference and make your own assessment... but if you enjoy the bouyant ride, 50psi is the setting for you...
