i'm actually looking at the 285/60/20 vs 285/65/20. 35.5" tall vs 34" but slightly wider. why is most looking to stay more narrow and only going taller? Seems to me these tire look very narrow...

So will the 285/60/20's rub due to width? Sounds like height is ok but not sure on width part.

This would be in the BFG all terrain KO's

Avery0 - I ordered BFG KO2 265/60/20 (stock size) because I checked with 3 different shops and they all told me there was no way a BFG KO2 285/60/20 would fit on a STOCK tuck without any modifications. The 275/60/20 is only a D load rating. I have yet to have anyone confirm locally or on any forum that a 285/60/20 BFG will fit on an unmolested rig. Everyone chiming in has turned the keys, cranked the bars, or leveled it etc. The title of the thread is "STOCK" that means no modifications to me. If you get the 285/60/20 to fit without rubbing anywhere please post pics and let the forum know. Good luck.

Oh wow totally overlooked the weight rating. So I guess I need to focus on the 285/60/20’s. I’m surprise no one’s tried them yet without modifying and or turn the keys etc. on their trucks. Seems like the perfect size for someone that wants to go slightly larger with no modifications

I agree, 285 would be great but everyone seems to be telling me they will not fit, without level or torsion bar adjustments. If they do fit without any mods then that would be great for the community to know.

The 275/65R20 is an E rated tire. I'm running them on stock wheels on a bone stock 2016 2500 Silverado LTZ Z71. Not a High Country but should be the same or very close.

The 275/60R20 is a D rated tire.

Yes, good catch, 275/65 is E. I have Denali with 20's and you are saying the 275/65/20 BFG KO2 fit? Thanks.

My dealer is going to order a BFG 285/60/20 to try. If it works we will order the other 3 if not he will return the one tire. Pretty dang cool of them I must say....

Yes, they fit with no rubbing. However, it seems that the ride height varies even among identically equipped trucks. There is a thread somewhere, where a guy went to a dealership and measured several trucks and found them to be as much as 1" difference between them. I measured carefully and did a lot of research before purchasing as well as I had an appointment to have the torsion bars turned if needed. I wound up not needing anything.
