    On the 2500HD's there is a factory 2 in body lift. You can run 285's with no problem. Usually you have to turn up the t-bars in the front alittle, which is no big deal because my truck sits nose heavy anyways. So it will level it out and allow room for the tires. It's a very common size to see get put on these trucks.

    Also with the 285s when you hang a blade on that truck it will help with the plow frame scraping on curbs. Every lil bit helps with the GM trucks. Timbrens are a must also.
