Tallest height, smallest width for 17 inch rims?

I'm so confused. Please forgive me for being lazy as I'm sure this has been covered, but...

I just want to know what the tallest/skinniest tire I can run on my 2004, 2500 Cummins, auto with stock 17 inch rims is.

It came with 265/70 R17s, but there does not seem to be a 285 75 R17 in existance. :-( That's what I want and need for the type of driving that I do...but I can't find it.

I did notice that someone posted about a taller tire that didn't go up in width (some sort of brand that ran that way or whatever?) But I had to click away and do some work.

Any help appreciated. Any pics double appreciated.

Cheers,

Vance

I'm not much help but can bump this back to the top and also add a question that may help others to find you a tire and size.

Do you want to keep a 10 ply load rating?

Toyo makes a 285/75R17 in their Open Country MT and AT's and they come in an E rating. Alot of people on here have good things to say about the Toyo's.

all major brands have a 285 tire in the 17" rim

Im running 285/70/17' bfg AT's on my 01 and will end up with some 285 Toyo's on the 06 this spring

True, the majors have a 285/70R17 but Toyo makes a 285/75R17 which is the same width as the 285/70, but an inch taller. Plus, they are E rated. The BFG 285/70's are D rated from what I can see.

I don't know enough about tires to know... But, I just tow my 4-wheelers around mostly. Sometime I do tow a 7000lb tractor across town for a friend, but that is rare.

I do a lot of funky (yet mellow) off-roading though and like the extra height for ruts/rocks etc. I just like the extra depth in a tire for those jagged edges.

All of the answers here have helped a lot. Thank you! I didn't know that Toyo had that size. I think I'll go with that tire. I have about 20k left on these stockers and can't wait to get out of them. They're looking pretty worn...but I'm too cheap to dump them yet.

Maybe it's time for some burnies?

my 37X13.5 toyos are D rated, but they are rated at only 50 lbs of payload less than my factory take offs. Look at the actual payload rating. you will be surprised.

285/75 17's on stock wheels

Follow the link to my pictures and see the 2005 truck. I'm running the Toyo's in this size. Load range E. They are approx. 34 inches tall with an 11.5" cross section.

Finally got tires...

35 inch Toyo Open Country's M/T

E rated

Took a leveling kit to get them on, they rub a little on full tilt, but nothing horrible.

Lost 3 miles per gallon...so now...looking for more mods.

Almost broke.
