285\'s- on stock wheels?

ok guys, i want to order the 285's today, but one question- will they run ok on y factory aluminum 16x7 wheels? tire manufacturer says 7.5-9 inch wheel. does anybody here ACTUALLY have experience mounting 285's on 16x7 wheels? thanks.

yup, that is pretty much the standard replacement tire. makes the truck sit just a bit higher and the speedo and gears are only off by a very little bit. most of the time it is un noticable.

Yes they fit, I got them on my truck. Dayton A/T's 285...
Does anybody know if a 285/85/16 would work?

285/85 will not work ona stock truck. it works out to be a 35" tire with a width of 11.2" no way it'll fit stock. you'd need 6" of lift or less and fender trimming. it MAY however work ona stock rim. you just wouldnt be able to fit it in the wheel well

285s work great on 6.5" wide wheels,

my 315x75(35x12.5x16) spare is mounted on a 6.5" wide wheel, this also doesnt look bad, and would wear well ared down in the mid 20psi range, to keep from wearing the centers out.
