dura trac 16" ?

wanting to put Goodyear Duratrac tires on 13 2dr. wrangler.

Thinking about going with 285/75r16 over 285/70/17 because of price difference.

Will be buying new wheels in either 16" or 17"

The 16" are a E load rated tire 17" can get D rated.

Anyone running the Lt285/75r16 and could comment on ride and handling.


Any draw backs to the 16" rims over 17"

Thanks

Be aware of brake caliper clearance going to smaller wheels. I thought 2013 wranglers came with factory 17" wheels.

I have 16" wheels on my tj and am going to 15" steelies so I can get load c 33" duratrac. I don't want to risk getting the 285/75r16 load e and hate the ride. And 33s on 15" wheels is cheaper
