Gotta find a ghetto tire shop.
When the rim is that much thinner than the tire, the tire WILL stand up in the middle as psi goes up. I have seen 285s on factory wheels, and running at max psi, the outer shoulders don't even touch the ground.
I ran my 285s on a 10 inch wheel and had NO tread wear issues at 50 psi. You don't need to fiddle fart around with the suspension to run a 285 on a 10 inch wheel, either.
