Which tires?

Jc Whitney has 15% off this weekend. I've narrowed it down to the BFG A/T's and the Dick Cepek Fun country's and I'm planning on stepping up to 285's can I run these with no rubbing?

i know you can run 33's stock or 35's with a leveling kit, you may rub a little at full lock. Whats the 285 equivalent to? i just know the regular sizes lol like 33x12.50 etc

285's are 33 11.25 I'm thinking I will go with the BFG's I've had them before and they are a great tire. I haven't heard anything on the fun countries either so thats another reason. Thanks everybody so far.

Go on and grab the BFGs. I havent rotated mine but once in a about 15k and they still look brand new except for the back two which have a little less tread on em. I rotated them the other day though. They ride real good and seems to last nice also. Ive enjoyed mine.
