    Default 285 Tires

    Has anyone put 285's on their truck without a lift? (08) If so, any problems/trouble?

    Thanks

    You knowreading things on this forum really makes me respect the collective knowlege of the members. And having said that I'm sure you can understand why I am slightly guarded when replying. I wonder if what I type turns out to be a waste of typewriter style eye movement...

    You were asking if 285's would fit on your truck?

    My truck came with 285's
    That is 285/55R20
    Hope that helps

    From what I see those tires are almost 34" tall. No way they will fit unless you lift the front about 3".

    I'm running 285-75-16 BFGs on my 04. Its got a leveling kit on it and the tires look kind small to me. That probly doesn't help you but I wanted to chime in.
