    One example- General Grabber is 2822 for the 33" tyres and 3949 for the 285
    You get 1" wider tread, 1/2" more sidewall for deflation.
    You can buy the rims with the saving. Also, you need to change rims or put spacers on anyway with those 285s to have a decent turning circle
    Not a huge difference in turning circle when I moved from 245/75R16 up to 285/75R16's. It's a Land Rover..... as a rule they do not turn.

    Edit: Ok, done some research. Thanks, sending you PM now.

    Edit#2: Done some more research. 15" steelies + modifications is definitely not doable with the savings from 285/75/16's vs the 33's.

    I'll be sticking to the 285s and will get spacers if needed.
    There's not a huge difference. the ATB's make a much bigger contribution.
    i just recalled a day in the dunes several years back. I was in my V8, a friend in a V8 on 285s but no ATB, And 2 TD5s. One of the TD5 drivers was in a stock vehicle and he himself had never driven offroad.
    We found one obstacle that involved an uphill turn that needed power and traction. I was the only guy to get over. The other V8 couldn't do it, even though the driver was more experienced than me. I gave him my truck and he breezed over. Then we gave it to the novice, and he breezed over. All 4 wheels spinning, traction control not interfering.
    You're gonna love the truck but sometimes things are too easy.

    Update:

    The D2 is in with Jeff at the moment. When it is done in the next couple weeks, it will have:

    Hybrid Turbo
    Intercooler
    Remap
    Terrafirma 2" lift + 2" shocks + 40mm body lift
    Gearbox V8 Torque converter mod
    Re-gearing Diffs with Ashcroft 3.75 ratios
    Ashcroft ATB diff locks front and back
    285/75/16 Grabber X3 MT's
    A snorkel
    as well as EGT monitoring and a little black box.

    Then, I'm going to try get the bumpers, rock sliders, etc. done before Christmas. If not, it will have to wait until after.

    You will have to do a bodylift and trim those arches or the tyres will do it for you...

    Update time:

    Received the D2 back from the indy a week before Christmas, with ATB lockers front and rear, but not the HD CW&P - outsourced workshop didn't do it like asked so it will be going back early this year, remapped, EGT gauge, 2 inch Terrafirma lift and shocks.

    Then installed snorkel ourselves (that was interesting - darn templates) and also the Stone Accessories bash plate.

    Also did the 3 amigos mod by bypassing the ground but it did not help, they are still intermittent, so have to find more faults to try and fix. Must be a sensor or wire somewhere. Hawkeye can't even clear the faults. Haven't had a gap to get to a Nanocom yet to try.

    Anybody have a Nanocom they want to sell

    Then got some tyres, did the spare wheel bracket swop, tyres still didn't fit, so cut the top plastic part of the bumper to make it fit.. then we went and went and tried it out.

    With traction control, flip, this D2 is amazing, the way it kicks in the ATB lockers is something else. Without TC, it's a little more interesting and rely on articulation A LOT more. Can also left foot brake to get the ATBs to kick in but not as effective.

    No major rubbing, even under full lock, did however catch the plastic trim off the back wheels. So wheel arches will be installed soon, along with custom rock sliders and a rear bumper which is now properly trashed... hehe.

    Will take some more pics and post, but this will have to do for now.

    This D2 is just pure fun.

    PS: my EGTs are a bit high, but I've adapted my driving style to the opposite of the D4 V8. So far, it's ok... I'll be fitting bigger downpipe and exhaust soon to help with that and then also relocate the intercooler to in front of the radiator
