Default Are 285/70r17 to small?

I got some 17' xd addicts and 285/70 km2, will this setup look good with a 3" level?

Yes .... they will look great .... But you probably need to make sure that the backspacing on the wheels is right for your truck .... The wheels I almost ordered are not made w/ backspacing that fits my truck .... they would rub on the break caliper ..... they said I need a 5 or a 12 .... couldnt find any i liked in my price range so II gave up and am keeping the stock wheels and going w/ that same size tire when my stock ones wear out ...... other than that they should be great

I used to run 285-70-17 mt atz tires on my 07 fx4 with 2.5" level. They looked small for sure, not a bad tire size but I would not combine them with a 3" level, they are only 1" taller than oem tires.

That's what I'm running and they look good. I'd rather have 35s though.

I ran them before I even had a level but here's my truck with 285/70R17s and a 2.5" level and 3" replacement block. If you want, I have pictures of them on my truck before the level. I'd suggest going to a bigger tire than that if you're leveling.



In my opinion they looked too small so I went to 35X12.50s and 20x9s.
