Default ‘06 Dodge 265’s to 285’s?

I have an opportunity to buy 4 like new BFG’s 285-70-17’s on 2011 Dodge wheels to replace my 265-70-17’s on 2006 Dodge wheels. Anyone know if these wheels will bolt up and if the larger tires will rub without a lift kit? Thanks for your advise!

I have a 2002 ram 1500 and I up sized my tires to that size.
No rubbing and my speedo is dead on now
stock size P265/70/17
New size LT285/7517
Fills in the wheel well and gives it a bolder look
Yes those rims will fit if you got rims too

A 265/70/17 is about an inch shorter then the 285/70/17. This should result in your speedometer reading about 3.3% slower with the 285/70/17, not much, just figured I would mention it.
