About 285/65-18 Tires
For five days a week, you sit behind a desk, filing paperwork, and counting down the seconds to when you can finally let loose on a wild weekend adventure in your off-road rig. So, when the weekend finally arrives, and you are craving some mud-splattered mayhem far from the beaten track, make sure you have a fresh set of 285/65-18 tires on your truck. These 18-inch tires are 285 millimeters wide and sport a sidewall that is 65 percent of the tire width. These are perfect characteristics for all-terrain truck tires. The width helps to maintain traction, no matter how rough the road gets, and the high sidewalls absorb shock to complement the truck's suspension for a smoother ride. Many aftermarket companies produce tires with these properties. For example, Toyo produces a range of Open Country tires suitable for all-terrain driving. Another popular choice is Nitto, a company that produces Trail Grappler 285/65-18 tires. Whatever brand you choose, be prepared for anything Mother Nature throws at you with some new, rugged all-terrain tires, widely available from the large inventory on eBay.
