View Full Version : large tire feedback
currently have 295/70/18's on my 2010 SMB. Looking for feedback from those running larger than this size of approx 34"
rubbing, drop in mpg, ride, etc.....?

I was running 35" on my SMB. I actually went down in size to 34". The most noticeable change is the wander it has now. It likes to wander at highway speeds much more due to the almost 2" difference in width of each tire. I had no issues with rubbing. I also have the SMB 4x4 system. Mileage seems to have dropped slightly maybe because I went from a AT tire to a MT tire with more aggressive tread patterns? Too hard to tell if mileage is really affected. Best thing to do is post this at the SMB forum.
what made you go from 35 to 34? would you recommend this?

Personal preference for me. The 35" made the van absolutely huge in appearance and posture. It feels much better for me at 34" and not as large. I have had many people comment on the difference as well. They could actually tell I went down in size. Nothing against 35" but the van is already a huge jacked up vehicle. They don't help you with clearance anymore than the 34" and I felt more comfortable with the smaller size doing serious articulation. Really personal preference. The 35" look better in photos but in real life I prefer the 34" on my van.
