Makes sense. I was hoping to take advantage of the 9.6 contact patch of the Trxus tire, but get the 33" height. I run the Oregon Dunes ( in my backyard) and air down to 4-6 psi on double beadlocks on other rigs and the overall height is reduced 4 inches when aired down. At 30psi I drive on the street and wouldn't be making aggressive compression turns unless I spilled the soda leaving the drive through :)

I went with the 285/70r17 as its closer to 33" instead of over 33" I didnt want to chance damage on full stuff with full lock in the dunes or on the rocks. Trail ready beadlocks are almost here! They didnt make the powdercoat cutoff and had to sit through the Christmas week.
Heres what I found:

.
285/70/17 vs. 285/75/17
Diameter inches (mm) 32.71 (830.8) 33.83 (859.3) 1.12 (28.5) 3.4%
Width inches (mm) 11.22 (285) 11.22 (285) 0 (0) 0%
Circum. inches (mm) 102.76 (2610.04) 106.28 (2699.57) 3.53 (89.54) 3.4%
Sidewall Height inches (mm) 7.85 (199.5) 8.42 (213.75) 0.56 (14.25) 7.1%
Revolutions per mile (km) 616.6 (383.14) 596.15 (370.43) -20.45 (-12.71) -3.3%

Update:

I did a little more research on the tires I ordered and had delivered :shock:
The 285/70/17's not mounted measure right at 32" and are said to be just under 32" mounted. The 285/75/17's measure 33 5/8 mounted.

I'm currently running the 265/75/16s and the 285/70/17s are not much taller, soooooo UPS is picking up these tires and I have ordered the 285/75/17s. I will post more when the wheels show up and are mounted.

"Trail ready beadlocks are almost here! They didnt make the powdercoat cutoff and had to sit through the Christmas week."

So what color did you go with for the trail ready rims?

Thier stock satin black with a natural ring that I will etch prime and paint body color green then sprung for all black hardware. This way when I rock rash the ring, I can SAV spray bomb it and touch it up.

I was hopeing to see them by now but " out of blanks, machinist off for 5x160mm, didnt make the next batch of powder" oh well. It hasnt stopped the latest snow runs ;)
