285's with a plow?

Just checking to see if any of my .Org brothers or sisters have run 285's on their stock superduty diesel with no lift or leveling kit. I know the leveling kits are cheap but most of them interfere with the minute mount plow. let me know what I can and can't do. Thanks Tom

Keep the rubber side down, and the coal flowin'

You will be fine with 285s, I run 305s and one side rub just barely on the mud flap. I have a minute mount too and I don't see how a leveling kit would interfere with the lower plow frame if that's what you're talking about kinda not getting it on that one

I run 285's but do not run a plow. I don't rub anywhere unless I'm articulating, at full lock.
