I need to change the tires on my 2001 Land Cruiser. The only ones we've found so far where I live in Honduras, are 285/75 R16 Falken AT3 W's. I have been using 275/70 R16 Hankook Dynapro.
I think I read that standard for the vehicle is R16 265/70.
1) Will the extra width cause me any problems? (looks like the diameter difference will be pretty slight).
2) And are the Falken a good alternative to the Hankook?

Thanks everyone !!

Have those exact tires and size on a 100, as do many. No problems at all. Also have had them on a couple other vehicles and really like them. Go for it.
