285/75-16 on 16x10 wheel?

Hey guys,

I picked up a set of (4) 16x10 Mickey Thompson Classic 2s for my truck for $150 in good shape. I am going to powdercoat them up and they will look bad ***.

Now that I have those I am looking for some tires. I use my truck commercially everyday for my business and in the winter it is a plow pig. My current 235s are bald so I want to use the MT wheels and new tires year round.

The tire guy tells me I should get 285/75-16s since I plow and will not want anything wider. But I am convinced I need to get 305s due to the 10'' rim. Any input? Will this set up fit on my truck? I have a leveling kit but thats it.

Any opinions/comments are appreciated.

Thanks!

I am also curious about this as well, but for 295/65/18 on a 18x10. Will it be enough ? anyone have any pictures of this tire on a 10'' wheel ?

I ran 285s on 16x10 wheels for a long time. i never had any issues with them when I went with a leveling kit I went with a set of 305s, i dont really notice any difference. I am about to pick up another set of 16x10 wheels for my 285s. Here are some pics with the 285s and the 305s on the same rims after the leveling kit.
305s

one thing tho is the max PSI on load range E tires drops to 65psi if they are bigger than 285. Just pointing that out. Thats why I stayed 285 to get the higher PSI and load carrying.
