    Well I sucked it up. I plowed with those rugged trails a couple times and never again lol. It is like plowing on ice. So I heard about someone we knew who had taken 285 bfgoodrich a/ts off of there truck. They had 1,000 miles on them. He bought them, then he had back and knee surgery and the tires made his truck sit too high so i bought all 4 for $350. I am so happy to have 285's again lol. Sorry for the bad pics. I will get some better one tomarrow.

    I just bought the same ones on Tire Rack mounted on black rims. Not sure how they will look on my white truck but I'm giving it a shot. Mine will be 265 though on 17" rim. I have the BF's on another truck and I love them. Nice truck btw.

    Ya if you put 265's on a f250 or f350 they just look too small. The 285's fill in the space nice. I love the bfgoorich a/t's. There awesome plowing. I have to clean the tires because the white lettering is all dirty, but I am not too worried about that.

    I had a 2002 F250 it had 265's on it the truck looked ok, put some decent looking 285's and it seems like it makes a big difference.

    Ya I had 265's on it then I did 285's for a season then back to 265 and they sucked. So I had to get 285's again. And I had to get better tires then those sucky rugged trails cause they SUCKED LOL. Funny because the f150 sits so low the 265's look great on it lol.

    I see what you guys mean saying the tire fill the fender wells better but you can just get a taller tire & go narrower on the width

    Good choice for a tire man, you will love them. I have a 265's on every one of my trucks in my sig. They are pricey but well worth the money.

    ya man there great tires. I had them on my truck last winter but they were worn pretty good. they were awesome and made the 250 look better. So when I came across these I was like gotta buy them lol. It was either $350 or $900. So I chose the $350 with only 1k on them. cant go wrong.
