I think 285s are too wide for those factory wheels, I had my 285s on 8 inch wheels and liked them best on 10 inch wheels. Also, I wouldn't run a 325 on anything LESS than a 10 inch wheel, leaning towards a 12 inch wheel. The closer the wheel width is to the tread width, the more tread you can put to the ground at higher psi, hence why I got an even treadwear at 50 psi rolling 285s on a 10 inch wheel.

I have the 295 60 20 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my stock wheels and I think they're just right and I believe they make a 295 70 18 that would be about the same for you. Might be worth looking into.

Yeah if you're set on Hankook you're probably right. I'm nearly positive Nitto makes the 295 70 18 but there are some good tire charts on the ole interweb that can help you.

A 285/65 is 32.6" tall x 11.2" wide. A 295/70 is 34.3" tall x 11.6" wide both in an 18.
