    Welcome to TW!

    Have you looked into everything related to 285s? They will rub. To do it right you will have to be doing some chopping/hammering/welding to fit them properly. Chop your cab mount. Hammering the pinch welds. Welding the cab mount box. I wouldn't be doing it myself if you don't wheel it. A 2-2.5" lift and 265/75/R16 or 265/70R17 (1"+ over stock) will look great and have zero headaches compared to a larger tire, not to mention won't suffer from the significant power and mpg losses, especially if you stick to a P or C-load tire. You'll also save $400+ on UCAs trying to get a higher lift for the 285s.

    Here are pics of my truck with 265/70R17s (1" over stock) with a 2" lift next to a stocker:
