    Alright...several issues here.

    1. The stock size is 265/70/16
    2. You can't get 3" out of the billies alone, they only go to 2.5"
    3. I've never heard of a 285/65/17 tire, where did you find one?

    If you are willing to do some fender well trimming and a possible cab mount chop, you can fit 285/70/17s on the wheels you specified.
