    Are you running stock or custom rims?

    I would be using the stock rims. It looks like the front tires would be real close to the back side of the front inner fender well while turning.

    I ran 285's on stock rims for quite a while in the summer, you'll have to crank you bars up a little bit at a time untill they don't rub. You also might have totie back some of the inner fender along with maybe trimming some of the front valance, It's not a big deal there are 1000's of people doing it.

    I'm running 285's on my 08 and had to turn the tb's alittle and trim some of the plastic but very little. It still rubs on one side only if the wheels are turned all the way and backing up, but not enough to trim more.

    Im running 315/70/17 on h2's. I had to crank bars a few turns and trim the plastic bumper valance a little to work. It is nice now that the front end isn't so low anymore.

    You should be able to get them to fit without major problems. You will probably have to trim some plastic.

    285 with Allison

    FYI for your Allison 1000, ran on my 2001 with 285 and we did have problem when towing the bobcat on the highway
    Speedometer / Tires - What effects will big tires have on transmission operation?

    A. The TCM calibration is based on factory tire size and rear axle ratio. Changing either of these parameters will have some adverse impact on transmission operation, including features like grade braking and shift stabilization. For instance, we have noted that when P285 tires are installed that the transmission generally does not shift to 5th range when towing heavy loads.

    Yes lot of use run big tires just FYI

    I got new tires today, I went with BF Goodrich AT TKo's 265 75 16

    I really wanted the 285's but my gut feeling said to just go with the 265's.
