Yup, that shouldn't be any issue. Typically going wider than 285's will require 1/4" spacers but at 285 you should be good to go!

Sorry just updated my previous post but I think you just answered that. 285's fit but to go with a 295 I will need 1/4 spacers. Thanks again brother.

Some guys do get away with 295's (or wider with no spacers) but that's not typical. All the trucks are built slightly differently so it's hard to give one straight answer for everyone. I would definitely have 1/4" spacers on hand just in case you do need them. First try putting the wheels/tires on the truck without them. If it works, great, return the spacers. But if it doesn't work you will have the spacers on hand to be able to get everything mounted up and drive your truck.

Any particular spacer better then the other? I just order the HBS 2.5 level kit and eventually want to run a bigger more aggressive tire on the stock 20's which is why I'm inquiring so much.

For 1/4" spacers they're pretty much all going to be the same. Rough Country makes them, not sure how much they are. BORA is a great brand for spacers but I think they focus more on large spacers rather than smaller 1/4" ones. Contact the guys at Bully's Performance (sales@bullysperformance.com). Tell them what you're looking for and that you're a forum member and they'll find you exactly what you need for the best price around.

AbnMP13, here you go. They do protrude a bit. I don't think the factory fender flares will cover these tires either. May need some aftermarket flares if you mind the dirt/rocks/etc.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Sam, that's not enough to bother me.

Do you still think the power loss was that significant?
