285/75R16's on stock rims?

Hey guys, I'm thinking about switching to 285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grappler Load Rang E tires. I ran an 18" version on my '06 F350 work truck and they were great! The 18's were wider though.

Anyway, I'm thinking about getting 2" Steel (hub-centric) wheel spacers for the duals and then running these. Truck has 4.10's so the 285's will help my MPG a little on the highway.

Spacers: wheeladapter.com/dually_adapters.php

I'm wondering how "bubbled" these will be on stock dually rims. I want themto wear as well as possible.

Also looked at a 255/85R16 but options are limited there. The only tires available are the BFG KM2's which are more aggressive than I want.

Leaning toward 285's and spacers right now...

Thoughts?

They fit.

I wanted to put 315/75's on the stock rims, which are a little bit too wide, but the 285's will work without a problem

at least, that's what I've read on here. No first hand experience.

I'm also looking at the 295/75R16 (33.42"x11.61") compared to the 285/75R16 which is (32.83"x11.22").

Anyone running the 295's?

I'm still leaning toward the 255/85R16's since they wont require spacers. (33x10) Just wish they're were more options for tires in that size...
