    BUMP! Id like to know as well im planning on doing a 3" OME lift and I think 265's look dumb with a 3 inch but I wanna know what people think with 285's without regearing.

    285/70R16 as originally posted up is a 32" tire not a 33" tire.

    Not sure how easy it is to find a tire in that size, though.

    I ran 285/70R17 for about a year on my 4 banger 5sp, before finally getting around to regearing to 4.88.

    It's still a big heavy tire on a modestly powerful motor, even when you do regear.
