i'm running 285s on the stock alcoas. no rubbing on a 350 suspension. if your truck is 4x4 you should be unless unless your springs are very sagged.

If anything on the 2wd it would be like 1/2". The rubbing is very minimal.

Actually it's probably worse. Leaf springs take more room than Coil springs but if Terry says your good than I'd believe him.
