    Has anybody managed to fit 285/75-16s on a full size truck WITHOUT any trimming or lifting? If so do you know what your wheel specs were? My rig is a stock 2001 Surb K2500 which is substantially higher than the K1500. The stock 245's look tiny under there! Thanks!

    My 99 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3 fit 285/75-16's on it with stock rims with no problem at all, no rubbing, trimming at all. Now I have added a Rough Country Leveling Kit with the rear blocks and the 285's look small now.

    my dad cleared 285s on a 2500 pickup but it had a small rub only in reverse with the wheels cranked all the way

    I would get a programmer if you go to that size tire, your 245s are roughly 30.5 overall diameter and going to a 285 is 32.8, that could really mess with ABS and speed sensors.

    I think you'l be fine. If any trimming is needed you can probably do it wih a box cutter.
