Love my new Nitto Trails 295/75/17

Just got these mounted yesterday. Definitely love the look of the huge thread blocks and so far am surprised how quiet they are. Here are some pics;

Before on Rugged Trail 265/70's



After on Nitto Trail 295/70/17's















So far I love the tires. Love the look, they feel great and it's a great size for my longbed. I almost went with the 35x12's but the added weight, cost and loss of mpg really turned me off on them.

No, absolutely zero rubbing. And yeah about 33.25" my guess is with the big thread blocks it might be closer to a 34" end to end, and thx!

Sma update.

So I drove to Little Rock, AR yesterday. Most of the drive is at 75mph with the last hour at 70mph, and what used to be a 23mpg drive was now about an 17.5mpg drove.

I do have 4:10's on the truck but I figured that the added tire size might counter the added rotation mass but I was wrong.

I'll be taking i59 down to Houston later today so I'll update accordingly.

Aggressive tread patterns have higher rolling resistance. Plus added weight of the larger tire size itself = lower fuel mileage. It just takes more fuel to keep those things moving.

75 on the speedo is really 83, unless you corrected it. That alone will kill your mileage.

Looks great! Are these 295/75 or 295/70? Yep, you have to adjust mpg for the bigger tires.

Yea I've been traveling with my Garmin all week. So 75mph I was traveling at was real world based.

Sorry it was a type on the title. My Nittos are 295/70/17. I don't even think they make them in 295/75. If they did I would of bought those. 😁

Was the distance you traveled also "real world based" or did you use an incorrect number off of the odometer?

I get what your trying to say, my speedo isn't adjusted for the larger tire diameter so my distance traveled is based off of the factory ~31" tire. I just don't see how it's relevant to anything.

If you want to know how far I've traveled on the new tires it's about 1200 miles to today. Drove to Little Rock from Dallas. Back to Dallas then to Houston. Ive also done allot of highway driving while I've been here in Houston.

Tires still feel great btw.

Ok let me try to explain... your odometer is off by about 5.5%. On a 1200 mile trip, that is about 66 miles that you traveled but did not figure into your mpg calculations. Are you hand calculating mileage or reading it off the overhead?
