5100s??

OK, I've searched and cannot find a solid answer. If I run Bilstein 5100s set at the top notch(2.5" lift) and have the TSB done, can I run 285/75/16s or will I have to stay with 265/75/16s?? By the way, I'll be running the TRD Ivan Stewart 16x8" wheels and the truck is a 08 4x4 DC TRD Sport. A solid answer would be great!
Mike

I'm gonna say no. People that are running the 285/75/16's have 3" lifts in the front and are having to do some trimming in their fenders to make it work.

You don't think that that .5" will be a problem?
