tire size upgrade

So the time has come, my tires will not pass inspection coming in june and i need to put some new ones on my baby. obviously i want to go up in size but seeing as i only have a leveling kit and my I am already running 265/75/16 will i see an issue with rubbing if i bump up to 285? and i am planning on putting wheel spacers on as well for some hope that will avoid the issue. let me know guys.

Don't do wheel spacers, They're almost as bad as plastidip

I ran 33's on my truck for a short time with just maxed out torsion bars and an add a leaf. They cleared, but I had to trim my front flares and valance. I also had #1 Torsion Bars, which don't sag as bad as the F or B bars. If your Sport has either of those, you may not be able to clear 285's depending on how sagged your bars are.
