Maybe a 285 might need to crank them bars though, or get some ford keys.

285/75-16 or 305/70-16. Same overall diameter, just that the 305 is a little wider.

285's will fit perfectly fine. I had them on my truck without any cranking when I first got them and they fit perfect. I eventually cranked up my bars to level out my truck...looks alot better with a little cranking

I have 285/75R16 on mine with the torsion bars cranked and they fit fine. They come within about 3/4 of an inch from rubbing. I don't know if you would have to crank your torsion bars or not to get them to fit. The front of my truck sat really low when I got it.

My 285s do rub, but that just means they're the perfect size.

(No cranking, btw.)
