Went off Roading in the Azusa Canyon ohv area with the 6.5 burb. She did great really really impressed considering 100% stock suspension. Buuut then I got into the creek bed and blew out rear tires on some really sharp rocks. Well had no choice but to drive her out in 4low dragging the rear flat tires..... Got her home and went for it with 285/75/16 from big O tires. Also since I destroyed my two rear wheels mounted up my alcoas I had been holding onto. Love the way these tires look and they were a good deal for Chinese tires. I would normally get bfg a/t I have ran them on every truck I've ever had. I actuall had bfg on it now and they really really did pathetic this time around. 35k miles they are worn down to 4/32 so I'm gonna see how these cheap tires hold up. They have great reviews online and we're a fair price.

I'd take anything that's made from China with a pinch of salt.
Cheap China tires is known for much longer braking distances, thread that lasts shorter than regular threads and the rubber may or may not come off the tire since China likes to re-mold older tires that's like 10-15+ years old.

If reviews of the tires show good feedback, I might use them, but I would turn up my butt-o-meter to 11 feeling for issues...

How much weight was needed to balance them?

I have a set of those wheels on my K2500... I like the look... I like my 17’s better...

I believe that 285 tires are too wide for the PYO wheels. 265 is max for that rim width with most tires.

I agree with you.
Firstly, these supposed "Alcoa" wheels are nothing but OEM RPO PYO rims.
Being PYO rims, the have width of 6.5". I provided a snapshot here of the stock size tire (245) that came on them, and the size stated in the post above (285).
I wonder why these tire manufacturers even bother to list rim width ranges?

Good pics. I love off road carnage. Need a few more dents tho...
Looks like an Ok tire for road and mild offroading. I would still be careful offroad. Look at the terrain/ obstacle and learn to pick the best line avoiding sharp rocks.
When I think off road tires Its more like mine which I consider a minimum for my needs for a off road tire. Pro Comp 12.50 x33 x 15, 3 ply sidewalls. I would go bigger 12.50 35s but. I need to do some more work with my sawzall and hammer to make them fit. I don't want to lift my truck higher than it is.
I would consider dumping the running boards if you want to off road. The little rock kiss in the bottom of my driver door ( have a matching one on the right side too.) would have taken out a running board and got me hung up.

Yeah I know the Chinese is a gamble buuut I needed the truck now and don't have much cash right now. I payed 1100 bucks for the bfg and they wore crazy fast. Since I destroyed them, getting out of the park not gonna get the warranty prorated price to replace them. As for choosing the line couldn't see the rock formations in the water. FJ cruiser went in ahead of us way too fast and tore up the trail dragging more rocks into our line. He thrashed his entire truck. We were already in the creak an truck behind us was stuck so had to go forward. Probly would have been able to make it through if I had remembered to air down the tires buuut I didn't so they both had 50psi in them.

Whatever works. Id be more inclined to go with treadwrights if you are off roading and worried about wear, only time I've seen them fail is with age. You use your tires hard, they are going to wear quick. Might want a set of BFG Commercial T/A or Transforce ATs for the long tows.

Well two years later I love those cheap *** tires. Correction for the name big o sells them they are called "ling long" at tires..... My buddy works at a tire shop and said that he would never buy a Chinese tire but they are the only acceptable Chinese tire anyone could get. I know nothing about it but they have 60,000 miles on them now and still look great and they have towed a bunch of weight and been through some knarly off road spots aired down to 15psi. They are 10 ply e range 3 ply side wall.......
