I'm running 255/70r17 on OEM rims and was thinking about going to a 285 but I'm holding back till I talk to somebody who knows more about tires.

I have read some threads online where guys are putting 305 on stock rims without any issues. Id like to see what people have to say about your inquiry...

How wide are you steelies? 285's are 11.22" wide. Pretty much the max width for a 7" wheel. Now if they're 8" you can go up to a 315mm but there again, that's pretty much the max.

Simple, sucky stock steelies. There like 16x7 or something. Ive run 12.50 tires on narrow toyota rims on past projects. Not worried about the fitment. Just curious what it looks like. Im holding out on wheels until I can buy some pintlers. So thus is a temp solution

If you can save some money, I would recommend getting some wheels with a lesser backspace.
