    I currently have 265/75R16 Firestone Steelteks on my Yukon, and I'd like to fit 33s under the fenders without adding a lift kit... It's my understanding that 285/75R16s are about 33" tall... How good does a set of Bushwacker flares look with skinny 285s? If anything, I'd like to put 33x12.5x16s under it, but I don't think they'll fit without an actual lift... correct me if I'm wrong. =)

    I had 285 on 8" wheels, rubbed on turning into a driveway. If you have stock rims shouldn't be a problem. If your talking about cutout flares, I have some on my 89, and right now it has 35s on it with 6-7" lift and looks goofy, but maybe I'm used to seeing 40" boggers on it.....

    On a stock IFS 1/2 ton, with STOCK wheels 6.5" wide, you can fit 285's easily. With wider rims they will hit. They will also hit on a 3/4 ton front end because they are wider. If height (and lower RPM) is what you're after, I'd suggest some 255/85R16's, which are about a 33x10.5. They are quite a bit cheaper than the 285's also. I know guys that have run 305's without major rubbing, but they are pretty wide for the stock wheels. BFG also makes a 295 A/T that would probably work. I ran 285's on 16x7's on a 2500 with minor trimming, and 285's on stock wheels on a 1500 without issue. In hindsight, I would run stock wheels with BFG 255/85 16 MT's. That size is not available in a BFG AT, but I have seen it in some Cooper's and other brands.

    doesn't bushwacker claim you can clear 35's stock with those cutout flares?
