    does anyone have a 95-99 3/4 ton truck with leveling kit and ~285-75 tire? If so do you have any problems getting your plow to mount up? I'd like to be able to run a taller tire than the stock 265 and dont want any rubbing issues, I also dont want any problems getting my boss plow mounted up either.

    I was thinking I'd run a leveling kit and timbrens to keep the tires from having any rubbing problems

    running a wider tire will not benefit you in the snow. wider tires are more likely to rub on the sides, not the top of the vehicle. a leveling kit won't help that.

    While the tire you spec'd is a bit taller than stock, the 285 measurement is the width of the tire, not height. Height is measured as a percentage of width, in this case 75% of 285mm equals 214mm of tire from the bead to the outer edge...stock is 199mm. in other words, half an inch.
