Tires!!!
 
So ive been wanting to get bridgestone dueler a/t's 695 (not revos) and my stock size is 235/65/17 as ya'll know. what if i go with a taller sidewall like the 235/75. i know its not much but would they rub fully turned to either side??

IMO, go with firestone destination a/t they are higher rated and are much cheaper. dealer installed the larger size on mine and came out to tell me they rubbed a little bit so i went with the original size destinations and they are the best tires i have ever owned.

I am getting Firestone Destination ATs installed on my WK next Friday. I am upsizing my wheel size from 235/65/17 - to - 255/70/17. From what I have been able to measure and do some good estimation they should not rub at all, and if they do, it will be a VERY easy mod to get them to fit.

I would go with the Firestones, and if you want to upsize and are worried about rubbing I would go with a 245/70/17 and they will fit for sure!

Nice! I think I wanna get the BFG ATKOs, but the Firestone's look pretty sweet too! What do you all say between the two? Also, will the 255/70/17 rub cuz I'd love to go with that size too!!
