    yes I've searched, and yes I know that 285s will rub on a stock truck. BUT...is it so severe that it can't be driven for a week or two until I get the lift installed? The way the cards have fallen, I need to get the tires first. I have wheelspacers to clear the UCA and I've already ditched the mudflaps. Am I good for a week or two or am I fooked? :confused:

    Well, you can *try* it.

    But I'm guessing you've gotta get your hands on some used tires to tide you over.

    I'm going to say you'd rub like no other with 285's stock. I know of a few (2-3) who have done it, but I have no idea how.
