An idea about wheel and tires. Will it fit?

A set of 16X8 wheels.

two sizes are
A - 5 inches of backspacing and 12.7mm of offset.
B - 4.5 inches of backspacing and 0 offset.

Would either of these allow me to run 285's??

Tires are OD 33.1 X 11.3 wide.

With the less backspacing than stock I was thinking it might work or still no??

Also my truck has 2 inch rear blocks and t-bar crank.

Thanks!!!

Re: An idea about wheel and tires. Will it fit?

i ran 285's on 16x8 american racing wheels with no tbar crank. Just about an inch of fender trimming. Now, i have a 2.5" add-a-leaf in the rear with about 1" tbar crank in front. Going with 295's as my next tire

with the 1" crank and 2.5 inch block does the tahoe sit level? I guess it probably dosnt have the same problem that the pickups have. how does it handle with the 1" crank and did you need to get new keys?
thanks
