285/75r18

Any one running a 285/75R18?

How do they actually compare height wise to a standard 35x12.50?

Their labeled specs put them a little taller than most standard 35's and am curious how they actually measure up.

Any body?

With the lack of tall narrow tires, I figured there would be a few people running them. Seems like an appealing size for JKs with factory 18" wheels.

Yea I like the size and it's available in a Nitto Trail Grappler, Toyo Open Country MT, and Goodyear MTR/k.

Between the 285/75R18 and the 315/70R18 (36x12.50) Toyo Open Country MT, 18's are looking a little attractive for a DD/ weekend warrior.

Down side is they are all load range E and have quite a bit of weight to them.

If you are putting them on a 4 door you will be fine. I run Toyo E rated AT2 in 35's and they are great you just need to run them at 26-28psi. The 285/75-18 Toyo in AT2 EX is only 65lbs.
