    Yes, if you have the lift to support it.

    Then yes, they will fit, but you will prob have to trim a little. You might have some rubbing.

    Also I was looking at 305/65-17 Procomp Xtreme All Terrains. They measure (from the Procomp site) 32.6 x 12.1 x 17, which is a little shorter then the 285's which measure around an even 33", But there a good bit wider.

    I wonder it these tires would rub less? idk
