    285 sorry. And my truck next to my buddys 06 1500 ls the bed rails handles fenders etc are all about level...except of the front edge of the hoods of course due to the newer style hood

    Another question I was wondering, I noticed that one "available" size for my tires, after looking online, is a 235/75/16, will THIS fit on the factory rim? and also would getting a "thinner" tire give me better gas mileage?

    how wide is the factory wheel? I certainly wouldn't run it as your truck probably isn't calibrated (gears, speedo) for such a short tire

    Yes, the 235/75/16's will fit.....and as far as Better Fuel Mileage with a thinner tire.....in looking(Below)at both Tire Sizes, the 255/70's that you have on Now Vs the 235/75's....as you can see there is very little difference between them, by chance do you on what Gears your Truck Has??
