Default 285/75/17

Is anyone running this size on their truck? I have seen a pic of a 295/75/17, but wanted to know if anyone had any input. Will they rub on a factory 4x4? I was going to level, but after all the horror stories, I have decided against it.

Regards
Rob

I'm pretty sure he means 285/75/17, like his post title states, not the 295/75/17 it says in the body of the post. So...

There are lots of 285/s out there, and they should fit a stock 4x4 with not mods.

Just to add, I've put several leveling kits on with not problems. I'm not sure what horror stories you are referring to.
