    What's the backspacing of the new wheels. For a first gen, you'll want 3.75-4" or so to fit the 285s.

    That's what the stock rims have. You'll be better off with 3.75-4 inches so you don't rub the uca on a wider 285mm tire

    It might work out but you won't know until it's all mounted up. You could get wheel spacers or just return the rims for some with a different backspacing. Maybe someone with 4.5" backspacing and 285s could chime in
