you wont notice a power difference. I went from 265/75r16 to 285/75r16s and didn't notice anything negative towing the 5th wheel, skidsteer or handling etc.

I agree - Probably won't notice any power changes, but you will need to compensate for difference in Tire Size when calculating mileage. Larger tires have a lower Rotations-per-mile so your odometer will see fewer miles. If you calculate it without taking the difference into account, your mileage will be lower.
