I I know the 285/70's are .55 inches bigger than the 275 and the 285/75 are 1.67 inches bigger...any suggestions or opinions? I'm just not sure if that extra inch of rubber is worth $35 per tire...
If you're going with a 2.5" leveling kit you're going to want larger tires than 285/70/17's IMO. Those only measure 32.7" tall.... Stock tires on the 20" rims measure 33" tall and they already look small with a 2.5" level. You want to look at something more in the 34" tall range for it too look good and proportional.
