the only con(if you can even call it that) is that you need more lift to clear a certain sized tire over the stock wheels. I guess if you carry a spare, needing 2 different spares would be a con. I haven't needed a spare tire since I was 16 and just learning how to drive a long truck(only 1 time).....30 yrs later never needed a spare for anything.
for example, a leveling kit would allow you to clear 33's using stock wheels. You would need at least 4in lift to clear 33's with a 16x10 w/4.5in bs.
I probably wouldn't have chosen a 10" wide wheel for a 285 though. I barely like it on a 315. A huge pro to wide srw up front; is that your tires will wear so much better.
Sadly there are no longer any SRW wheels that perfectly match dually wheels anymore; unless you go custom, 20's, etc.
I no longer have the wheels/tires in my sig (so sad). I went back to stock 3-4yrs ago for various reasons. I recently just lifted my truck and went with the same look. I thought i had it figured out a couple times but no luck. I now have 2 unused ultra wheels
I'm currently running ion wheels. I originally was able to keep my factory ford center caps with some creativity. this time around the wheels are machined differently so it doesn't work out as well as the discontinued eagle alloy wheels(out of business).
If you go to the fatbottom picture thread; you can see guys with leveling kits running 35's/315's on stock wheels. I had to run around 5 inches of lift running the 16x10 wheels.. this time around I have slight rubbing with the exact lift setup (because backspacing is different).
