pictures of 255/85R16 tires

im going to need some new tires this spring and i want to replace the 285/75r16 i have now. I want a mud terrain and luckly the 255's i found are all in that size. I tried searching but i only found one F250 on here with this size tire so i figured id post a new one asking for some more detailed pics of the 255 85R16 on a Super Duty.

No SD pics, just tire ****. The 255s are definatly are tall & skinny.
Toyo MT 255/85R16 (and comparison pics)

255-85-16 BFG MT KM2. Hope these pics post ok. It's my first try.
I would recommend these tires. Excellent traction off road, but still are reasonable quiet on road and did not hurt the MPG.

Thanks for the pics dwaber! Them KM2's look good on a stock SD wheel. Ok saturday morning i took my girlfriends wheels to my tire guy to get new tires installed. I was told Toyo open Conrty in 255 size were on a "to be announced" not available in US. He did give me a price of $1100 installed for 255/85 16 KM2 and $1250 for Toyo 285/75 15 Open Counrty. So i think im going with the KM2's in 255 size this spring, trying to push the crappy all terrains till then.

and DKF thats the same site i found that had awesome detailed pics of the 255 vs 285 tires. It just seemed that the 255 KM2's looked extra skinny in his pictures, but dwaber pictures look real good on a factory 7" ford wheel?

dwaber had did your tires balance? I bought the new Eload BFG all terrains a few years ago and they sucked, they tried to balance them twice untill they got me a new set and these ones are better but not perfect. But i had BFG dloads before and never had a problem, and a set of mickey thompson MTZ that were perfect

Dwaber,
Could you repost your pics?
I thought maybe it was my computer not letting me view, but i have tried to view from other sources. No luck.
Thanks
