revos in 33 for a DD pavement queen
If you are worried about MPG stick with a smaller 32" tire. Anytime you add weight and more diameter you'll loose MPG's.I have a 2 1/2" spacer lift and adj. shackels for the the back to put on my 05' LE 4x4. I'm debating on going w/ 32's or 33's. I know it's totally up to me but just looking for everyone elses opinions. I do mostly pavement pounding and only put about 10 miles a day on the truck, so I'm mostly going for looks. I'm thinking Dunlup Maxx Terrain 32's or Revo 2's for the 33's. Also wondering what might get the better MPG.
On your 2nd Gen Frontier the 265/75R16 will bolt right up quick and easy. This is the stock Nismo 16" tire size. No modifications would be needed.I am looking at my first set of new tires and I am mostly on pavement but want to have as much off-road capability without sacrificing too much on the pavement. I have been looking around a bit and the Destination A/T looks like a great tire. I was looking at the 265/75/16 (31.7) but I don't know how the 285/75/16 (32.8 ) would fit. The 285 is also another 10lbs heaver per tire over the 275 so I don't know.

If you want to run the 285/75R16 I'd recommend a wheel upgrade and a leveling kit. Your stock wheels are only 7" wide and if you want to get the most out of your tires Tire manufacturer's recommend a 7.5" wheel at minimum. Let me know if you are interested in going this route I would be happy to help you select a wheel with the right specs to make this work. It can get a little tricky to minimize tire rubbing when you add this much rubber.
I know, I know, it doesn't seem like a big deal but from being in the wheel and tire industry for 7+ years myself and working for a company that has been in business for 50 years (this year is our 50th! ) I can confidently tell you that just because you can, doesn't mean you should.I have been looking around at leveling kit options but I don't really want a new set of wheels and I did see the 7.5" recommendation. Sounds like it wouldn't really be a problem though, seems like plenty of people run tires specifying min. 7.5" rims on their stock 7" rims. The only problem I've heard from others is that I might have to look around a bit for a shop who will actually put the tires on my wheels.
