Default 285 tires??

Probably another thread on this...

Currently running 235/75-15 tires. There's a scorcher deal on some 285s. Will I be able to run 285s on my truck?

I've also noticed that going to a 245 expands mh options quite a bit... from the limited knowledge I've over heard in books...

Thanks foos!!!

You are right with going to 245 you have a lot more options, but going to a 285 you'll mostlikely need a lift to fit those tires the right way. I have 285/75/16 and I have a 3" body lift and 3" keys. Just a heads up that they will rub if you don't have at least a 3" body lift.
