Double lift+285= safe?

I was wondering if running a superlift + 3"body lift is safe with 285/75R16 tires on stock rims? Would it just look kinda retarded or would that be unsafe. I was thinking safe might be a factor because of the narrower track width. Aftermarket 15x10 BS 3.25 does considerable widden stance, but does that affect the roll over possability? Granted i wouldn't lift to get a cornering machine but was just wondering. Does anyone have pix of this being done?

Goofy yes.



But isn't it close to common knowledge that "when you go up, you go wider" ??

Exactly the point of the post. I was wondering if it was safe to just go up considering nobody does it.
