    Of course this all depends on what you think looks good!! the 285's will stick out a bit I think. I have 265/75/16 and I think it looks pretty good.

    The 285s will be higher. Plug those tire sizes in to the tire size calculator to see the difference.

    They are over an inch taller. IMO, it is noticeable but it is kind of all about the perspective of the vehicle.

    285 tire looks much bigger than 265. You will have rubbing issues though. To help clear the body frame mount either have it chopped or get at least 1.5" hub centric wheel spacers. I'd try the wheel spacers first. Some people will steer you away from them but their is nothing wrong with wheel spacers. OME is a good basic quality lift. Stick to that choice if you want to save money, or do a bilstein ajustable shock.
