    That's a 31.5" tall tire - so it's not all that bad. I like it.....
    Do you have the TSB leaf springs or no?

    The first generation trucks came with 31's from factory.

    Got any pictures of the tires at full turns? That'll be the first place it rubs - during turns.

    I have not done the leaf TSB. I did not want to lift it and I was told that 285's would rub at full turns - is that not the case? Anyway, the 265's are plenty big for me and give the truck a better look IMO. More than anything I'm glad to be rid of the stock Dunlops.

    They rub on the frame where it meets at the back of the tire on full turn, if you tear off your OEM flaps they probably won't rub anywhere else
