285 only gives us the width. 28.5cm x1in/2.54cm = 11.22" wide.

obviously, a tire with a 17" hole will not fit on a 15" wheel...

alright well 285/75r17 is approx 34x11.5x17

you would need quite a bit of lift to stuff those under. most likely lift coils and lift spindles for the front and SOA in the back

I dunno...I've got 2' and trimming and still rub with 265s.

Isn't nj4x4blaze only running 32s with his 6' lift? And those wells look pretty full...
