    New To The Site. I Put 285 Bf Goodrich Ko's On My 2500 Hd. I Put In A Timbren Package, And Cranked Up The Front End About An Inch Or So. Truck Will Be Carrying A 7 1/2 Fisher Stainless X-treme V. Have Not Plowed With The Truck Yet, As We Have Not Got Any Snow Since I Purchased The Truck 2 Weeks Ago. Hoping Not To Have Any Tire Rubbing Issues. Anybody Else Running 285's?
    Also, Anybody Know How Much Will Thet Bigger Size Tire Effect Acceleration From A Dead Stop?
    Thanks Guys!!

    HAHAHA, you'll see lots of rub, I promise you that. Acceleration? why does it matter? are you drag racing? You shouldnt have much of a difference.
    I hope to be posting updates pics soon of my truck and you'll see Im running the same tire and almost the same plow (8').

    I had 285 BFG'S on my 93" half ton last year (torsions turned up and timbrens) and never had a problem, you have a 2500 you should be fine, good luck plowing.
