    Installing my 2" lift next week and already starting to do some research on a larger tire. Really happy with the stock Nitto's but thinking a 285 70R17 would fill the wheel well very nicely. I have it narrowed down to the Nitto Grappler G2 285/70R17 116T which I believe is a C or P rated. Would love to hear some reviews on folks running these tires in this size. Pics would also be helpful if you have them. Also thinking of the Ridge Grappler in same size but think it might be a little to aggressive as my 4Runner is a daily driver. Thanks in advance.

    Really like my Ridge Grapplers. Super quiet, have handled absolutely every situation well so far. Zero complaints.

    Thanks for the reply. What size are you running? Noticed the Ridge Grappler way about 11 lbs more a tire than the G2's. Do you notice the extra weight? Thanks

    285/70/17 load range C. Slightly but hardly noticeable, I also added a 2.5" lift. No matter how light or heavy they are if you are going up in size you will notice a difference in performance. Albeit the lighter the better. I keep my transmission in S4 around town to help.

    When I added 285/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs (load range D) to my Tacoma back in the day I really felt those and regretted it. So I was weary doing the same to my 4Runner. But I am glad I did. The Ridge Grapplers in C range have been great.

    Here is the thread I started on the topic: https://www.4runners.com/threads/285s-any-regrets.2175/

    I have the nitto g2 in 285/70r17 and I love them. Mine is daily driver so I haven't done anything crazy yet. But it handles dirt roads and sand very well and has great road manners.

    Nice to hear someone out there with them. Do you have the 116T which I believe is the C or P rated. Or the 121/118S which is the E rated. What size lift are you runing on your rig? Love to see some pics if you have them. Thanks.

    I have the 116T. I am running the toytec ultimate lift at around 3" 6503149b8d5c61a9b85bf73f45bd74b4_abce5ded550ece5c3a04a67fe962dfc2b94380f0.jpg5de0a59f656d6a5d9622585e2a6a395f_550c4069d02ca239f52117f845fc8d83626d292f.jpg44aba91507dbc9daec7414ddf4c7fefa_8750f79e7b9ea4320e1420b04b97f498dd38d6c5.jpg89429b2a8212d4ea370f8ac4ebaa6aab_6ca0e3c0722399c5cc868e1b87e3faa1020ff4c9.jpg6896286e01b291dd98912c8eff7ff2a6_7a813b8ef381d8bbfe339fe3670cf837e8372002.jpg8d981ef1cfb3d365adf1c3102599627a_8c4590510505999049a790f86a8d21bd5b6d9b1b.jpg

    Thanks for the pics and video. Your rig looks great. 285/70/17 are definitely the way to go, They fill the wheel well nicely. I'm running the stock Nitto Grapplers in a 265/70/17 that came on my TrdPro. But as soon as I did the lift I wanted bigger tires.

    I'm in the same boat! I currently have the stock 265s but my lift is scheduled for tomorrow and I'm having them throw on the 285s NG - I was torn between the 285s and 275s but everyone advised me against the E rating unless I'm really hitting the off road trails ALOT - Mine's a daily driver so I opted for the 285 with c rating. I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes.
