i don't know what 285's are, but my 31's fit fine. I think 31's will fit all stock rangers.

they should fit, might rub a little. 285 are just short of 33s. kissofdeath just put 285s on her ranger not torsion crank and she has flares and they dont rub. the 285s will definatley fit with the body lift.

I work at Les Schwab and recently tried on the tire you are talking about. The tire is a true 33. On MY ranger ive got the torsion bars cranked and they fit fine. I don't know what Les Schwab store you bought them from but they should have at least let you try them on first before you bought them. Those tires in my opinion are about the best Mud tire on the market.

Should fit great....w/ cranking of the bars. My 265/75R16s are just over 32"....they fit absolutely awesome....I could go bigger.

Plus....les schwabs don't know what they are talking about most of the time anyway.
