In the 35" Tire Club Now (F250 Content Here)

I picked up a set of LT285/75/R18 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R on my 2009 F250, and they fit no problem at all. They measure out to about a 35x11" tire. I was wanting a taller tire, but not much wider than what was on the truck from the factory (LT275/70/R18). These new Goodyear Wranglers are different with the asymetrical tread pattern. I like them a lot.

So far, I've flexed it out and hit bumps turning, and there is no rubbing at all. Here are a few pics that will have to tide you over until I can get the truck all washed up and get better lighting conditions.

Here it is. No lift at all.

Looks great! Fills out the wheel wells so much better. I don't know what they were thinking when they made the tread pattern on those though...

Very nice man, they fit perfect!
You keep making my wish I bought a super duty though, I don't appreciate it!

Have you felt much of a performance loss with the 4.10's?

I have not noticed a performance loss on the highway or around town.
I think a big test is going to be doing my regular pasture/trails in 4 high. And of course, when I hook up the cattle trailer.

But with just normal driving, no I can't really tell a difference. I'm really glad I opted for the 4.10 gears.

Thanks for the compliments. I've put about 100 miles on them already, as I drive quite a few miles.

They seem to handle very well on the road. Coming from a very mild tread, I can definately feel the aggressive pattern at slow speeds on smooth asphalt. It feels about like any other mud-terrain tire. The outter lugs have more space between them than, say, a set of old-school BFG MTs.

They do make a little noise on the road, but it is not bad at all. Again, they're about on par with most radial mud-terrains I've owned in the past. They're MUCH quieter than my buddy's F250 with 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers. Those tires are loud!

The Goodyear Wranglers also did very well on wet pavement for me. I went through a pretty decent shower in town, and was impressed in how they handled around corners and hitting various puddles in the road. The truck was very sure footed. The factory Continental Conti-Tracs were terrible in the rain, by comparison. How bad, you say? I could get the back end of a 7,000lb truck sideways in the rain... with a 5.4L V8. Pathetic. Highway-oriented tires should do better than that.

And to Jimmeh-
I too was shocked to see how tall a LT285 series tire was when I started shopping. The best I can figure is that metric sizes are based totally off the size of the rim. A sidewall profile of 75 gives you a 8.5" of sidewall. Double it and add it to the rim diameter to get 35". A 35" tall "flotation" tire is 35" inches tall no matter what size hole is in the middle. That's the best I can figure. And, it would make sense if your 285s were 33" tall with a 16" rim.



EDIT- totally in with the late response! That'll teach me to answer the phone in the middle of a R-F post! haha
