Default tire time

Tires are getting some good wear on em and with winter approaching id like to get new ones and up size. Question is how big of tires can I fit at factory ride height. Truck is a dually currently I think I ha.ve 235/85/16. I was wondering if I could fit 285/75/16's. Will I need spacers between rear wheels or anywhere else? Any help is great.
Thanks-cody

You should be able to fit a 285 at stock ride height, but yes, you will need a spacer.

You can fit 255 85 16 with no spacer and slightly taller, like an inch.

I'm not worried if I need a spacer. I would like wider as well as taller

Well, you will need hub-centric spacers if you use a spacer, plan on around $500. I have seen a 305 75 16, looks kind of funny on a factory 7" rim. The 285's are a common size for replacement. Also, I am not sure at what upsize you would want to regear things to compensate for the larger rolling stock, something to keep in mind.
