On a stock 07 Tundra 2WD TRD package reg. cab I drive extremely aggresive the stock P275/65R18 BFG Rugged Trails are bald at 33k miles already.

I do mild off-roading and just looking for best wet weather/dry grip/puncture resistance

What would you guys recommend on new size

LT 275/70R18 Michelin LTX A/T2
LT 285/65R18 Michelin LTX A/T2

Which will fill up the wheel wells better and look better?

I am looking at this tire due to its longest treadwear rating based on Tirerack.

Anyone run these before? I think I gave up on the BFG A/T KOs it seems like it's too much hype and the test results from Tirerack and user reviews do not justify.

go with the 285's. you'll have little wider footprint and more traction.

Damn on second thought the Michelin LTX AT2 only is available in 275/70R18 no 285's available anyone have second opinions on a good tread life tire?

Okay well Discount Tire has them for $257 each on the 275/70R18s in stock so I am just going to go ahead with them. Out the door with road hazard is $1359

The 285's they would have to order and will be $321 each so mounted and out the door will be around $1600 with road hazard as well way too expensive.

Man I had a great deal out of another Discount Tire $1292 out the door on BFG A/T KOs but I had to turn it down on the 305s as I am looking more of an on road tire with a/t capability...Tirerack test results show treadwear much better on the Michelin LTX A/T2

Check out: Consumer Survey Results By Category

I'm surprised the BFG A/T KOs were so low in standings...I was DISAPPOINTED!

Well I will post results after some driving I will be doing about 400 miles this weekend mostly highway and let you guys know how it turns out....which is why I had to jump on the Michelin LTX AT2 in the 275/70R18 even though I was leaning on 285's as I need them mounted tomorrow since I am driving out on Friday and running bald isn't safe.

I got a set of Cooper Zeon LTZ's and couldn't be happier. They are definately one of the best tires I have ever had for light off road, snow and rain.
