They should fit if you got the billies at 2.5" unless you got a heavy ass front bumper that might make it sag. I wouldn't really go past 265s for the width with the 4 banger engine unless you just dont care about acceleration or gas mileage.

I just have the stock and im probably gonna keep it that way. but as for the width, i do care of course about the acceleration and milage. how about some 275/75's? its a little wider but about .5" smaller

Thats just it, i'm just looking for a little more clearance for bigger tires. not an entire lift. but if i get 275/75's should i be good until i can pay for a full quality suspension lift?

I dont see why not? There might be some minor trimming involved but nothing bad

Yea that'd probably be better. I lost alot of power going from the stock to 255/70s and they aren't THAT much bigger. It all depends on vehicle application, taste and how much power/mileage you are willing to give up when it comes to buying tires. If you do alot of hardcore off roading you may need the 285s, but most mild to moderate offroaders that use their trucks as a daily drivers go a bit smaller because they last longer and don't kill gas.
