will 285's fit you think?

I have had these 265/75-16 Buckshots for about a year now and love them without a doubt. They are still like new,rotated every oil change,wearing perfectly,awesome off road and fairly quite once you get rollin. Problem is they look like 235/75-15's to me now! I just got some new rims mounted up this morning I bought off Hal here{16x8 Ultras} and after lookin around at the tire store I really want a set of 285 Buckshots.They can hook me up for 660.00 out the door which I think is pretty good.Think the truck looks tall enough to fit the bigger tires?

Ya I know what you mean man Im havin the same problem...when I first got my 265s i was like dang!! This thing looks big and mean! Now the dern things look like stock size to me. A number of guys on here have put 285s on, you just need to crank your t bars and maybe either do a shackle in the back or aal to really make it look right. Me personally I hate the stuffed look so I would have to do these things. Your like me and I have my bars cranked and Im feelin like I should have gone with 285s...

Yuppers! I used to rock a set of 285s on the stock alloys. My 32s are looking tiny to me now.
