Tire Size ? 265/75-16 or 285/75-16

I have a 99 F250 4x4 S/D Ext Cab. It has Fstone Destination M/Ts 265/75-16 now. Can I fit Fstone Destination M/Ts 285/75-16 on it with the factory Aluminum wheels with truck at stock ride height?

Some tire shops won't put 285's on stock rims. I have 285's on 8 inch rims and don't have any rubbing or other issues, with stock suspension.

No problems at all. I'm running 315's on a 2" leveling kit, so I'm confident that even up to a 305 would fit stock height. By the way, I can even fit my 315/75/16 spare in the stock location under the bed - but it's a tight fit!

I run Firestone Destination A/T's in the 285 75 16 size on stock rims with no issues. Go for it!
