I know there are thousands of people out there running 285's on their stock 6.5" rims. With no problems. I also know a guy that runs a 315 on his stock rims for 15K and no problems. I am just getting your opinion on whether i should mount BFG 295/75/R16 on the stock rim, I got them for a killer deal and dont want to spend money on an 8" rim right now. I dont haul big loads at all, im using the truck for pleasure driving and work. I do know about the tread wear that would happen, but Ill play with tire pressure to figure that out.
