285/75/16...Will they fit?

I have a 98 4x4 4.0 V6..the big boy and im rollin on 265/75/16s right now. I have The Dueler A/Ts which are complete junk so I will be getting the BFG All-terrains. Will 285/75/16 will they fit on my rig without a t-crank or BL? And if anyone has any pics of this tire size, I would like to see what they look like. Thanks so much!!

You are going to have to crank your tbars, but they should fit snugly. My next set of BFGs should be 285/75R16s.. as soon as i can afford the $800 price tag =/

yea they fit great with your t bars cranked to the max... i have them but i suggest not wheeling to hard or you can end up bending your fenders up,...if your thinking about it go for it, only with the t bars up though!

I had Evan's Cooper Discovery STT's on my truck, 285/75/16's with a T-bar crank. I was out on the beach one time and hit a deep rut and thought I ripped my inner fender's off, tire grabbed something. Like he said above, as long as your not a hardcore offroader you should be fine.
