Will 285/75 R18s on stock rims rub?

Asked in a different thread, but didn't get a response.

I'd like a slightly larger tire than stock, but I don't want to lift or level the truck. Will LT 285/75 R18s on stock rims have any rubbing issues with a 2005 FX4 F350?

Sorry if this has been covered before. Thanks!

Just saw your post I put that size on my stock height f250 and have no rubbing issues. I put my stocks back on for the summer to use up the tread so I havent towed heavy with the Toyo's yet. No noticeable drop in mpg I have 3.55 gears. Hope this helps

Awesome, thanks Couch! What's the effect on the speedo, and how difficult is it to calibrate it?

I have H&S so I just recalibrated which is easy to do. I'm sure the dealer could do it if your not tuned, or just figure your going about 2-3mph faster than your speedo says.

Problem is, when I bought dedicated winter tyres, I bought for the size that was already on the truck, and I'm not spending 1800 bucks again on winters. So the difference in speed would be between a 275/65 R18 and a 285/75 R18. I was wondering if there was an easy way to recalibrate because that becomes a significant difference in speed.
