Are you thinking of getting the 285/70/18? I just went to discount tire's website and it shows only one tire with that size. And one of those tires cost $390. So, we are talking about an estimate of more than $1,600 for a set of 4 tires. That is high. My guess is you will likely not want to spend that much on tires.

As for if it will fit, I know there is a thread here where some people have said that size should fit and even a 305/65/18. I think I read somewhere where someone said those 2 sizes should fit with no problem n stock rims. Maybe they can chime in.

That thread is somewhere. If I find it, I will post the link here.

I think 275/70r18's was what I thought about going with because of the prices.

I bought my Armada used with the gun metal 2014 pro 4x wheels on it. Those wheels come stock with 275/70/18 on them. So, if you are thinking of getting that size, I say go for it. That is what I am currently running.

It is awesome. The tires just feel right and the BFGoodrich I have looks a bit aggressive. I like it. Though the tires wear out pretty quick, as I have been told. As for me, I have about 17,000 miles on them so far and still have some good thread.

Bearing blocks are gone or rear brakes are gone. If the bearing blocks are worn out, since they come from nissan with about 3 drops of grease in them, they triple the wear rate of the brakes. If you have over 75k miles, all 4 wheel bearing blocks need to be replaced. Another thing nissan doesn't do, is apply antiseize to the brake caliper slider pins which keep the calipers applying and releasing pressure equally. Mandatory at every brake job. If the pins and sleeves are not antiseized, the pistons apply pressure unequally and vastly accelerate the wear of the pads.

any guys running a 315/70/18 on their mada or QX? I'm looking to do the 2" lift with my 2005 QX56 and looking for the best tire combo for my stock 18" rims with no rubbing issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
