If you put 285 75 r16 on the factory rim it will be around 33" compared to the factory 31" but will not wear correctly due to needing a wider rim. You are also around 11" wide putting more rubber on the road lowering mileage. This is my opinion from experience.
If you just want more height, go to a 255 85 r16. It will still be 33" high and will only be around 10" wide instead of 11" on a 285 75. It will also wear correctly on the rim. This will keep less rubber on the road keeping mileage up and give you more height to fill the cavity as well as gear it higher to help mileage.
