Ive seen people run 285's depends on what you do with your truck wheel offset also.

285s with stock wheels is very doable. 265 would be better if you actually wheel or take the truck off road.

^same here. I have been running 265's on my truck for four years now. Absolutely no problems wheeling or street driving. TBar crank could get you passed the 285's but not at stock level from others people's input on this site in previous threads. It just matters what you use your truck for too. If you just use 4X4 for hunting like me, the 285's should fit with a TBar crank. But if you are planning to wheel in this truck like actual trails and such, I would def suggest putting a 1" BL and a TBar crank or even just going with a 3" BL.

I have 285s with no suspension mods on mine. They fit just fine and do not rub. My wheels has 0 offset and 4.5 inches of backspacing.

Old pic when I first put them on...

My 285/75s they rub the swaybar at full lock and when the rear flexes out there is some rubbing. On the street they are fine.

I got set of 265 toyo's and they do the job! In my own opinion , 285 is too big!! Especially if you have a 3.73 , Mines got the 4.10 and that a manual ....

If you're gonna go with a 3" FOR SURE then most definately go with 285s as they will fit. They def. look too big on a stock truck for sure but I think they look awesome with a 3" lift.

This is 265/75-16 on a stock truck with very minor T-bar crank just to get it somewhat level.

if your going with a 3" BL anytime soon then definitely go with 285's cause the 265's will be way to small. what gearing do you have?
