If they ever come in I am going to try 285/75-16 on my stock 16x7 inch rims.

The tires are 1/2" too wide for the rims, but after reading lots of posts here I am confident that they probably be OK.

That is the size I run on my stock 04 rims. No issues at all and they look great.

I feel like i'm hijacking your thread Darkhorse, but as an update I got rid if my 235/85's and got the 285/75-16 E BFG All-Terrain today on my stock 7" wheel and they look good and ride quiet.
Turned to the stops there is one finger width clearance at the rear of the wheelwell between the plastic innerfender and the tire. I have an ARB winch bumper and there is tons of clearance in the front.
Sighting down the side of the truck the tire is even with the side now so I am happy there too.

As a bonus my speedo is now exact at 50mph with the gps.

2nd set of 285/75-16's

I just got my 2nd set of 285/75-16's put on the other day. I had a set of Bridgestone Duelers that I wore out. I switched to the Michelin LTX M/S tires for a smoother/quieter ride, but stuck with the 285/75-16 tire size. I think this is the ideal size for this truck, in stock condition, and it also brings my speedometer up to speed with my GPS. Question for you guys reading this forum though.. are the steel stamped rims a different width than the alloy rims? I noticed that most tire providers spec a different size for Super Duty Models other than the Lariat? Stock size being a 235---something or other. I wasn't sure if it was a rim difference or just a fit-and-finish difference.
