285/75R16 tires without rubbing?

I am purchasing a set of FJ wheels, which I believe have a 4.5" backspace, and was wondering if a 285/75R16 tire will fit without any rubbing issues. I do not have a lift installed, the only thing I have done is the rear leaf TSB. The rest is all stock. My truck is only two months old, so I am still saving up for a lift. I have the TRD Off-Road Package, which has alloy wheels and 265/70R16 tires. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

yep, need 3" lift or maybe the mudflaps removed and some major trimming like the other guys have said. a 265 would probably fit though.

Do you think that tire size will fit if one stays with the stock TRD Off Road Wheels?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Even if lifted, 285's on the stock wheels are gonna rub the Upper Control Arms when turning.

If you put a leveling kit on it and 1/8 in spacers it will allow you to run the 285s... but the mud flaps on the front will have to be removed
