To the OP and the person who asked about the Cooper Zeon LTZs....as I have many times before and certainly will again, I highly recommend them if you are looking for a badass AT tire with great highway manners as well.

And to the OP, yeah, 285/65/18 is the metric equivalent of 33x11.5x18 even though the 285s are technically 32.58 inches tall. I have found this conversion calculator very handy when researching tires.

LT stands for "light truck", usually if there is no designation listed it means is a P, or "passenger car"....I think the light truck tires just have a little more reinforcing and can carry more load.

^ Not sure, that is a WIDE tire....any reason for it? Supercharger...turbo...nitrous...? Maybe with an aftermarket wheel with more offset...

May want to stop by the newbie section and say hello, and you can maybe post your questions in the appropriate forums in stead of hijacking this guys.... not trying to be mean just helpful lol...

Not based on any actual experience but a lot of research....I would have to say no, not on a stock truck. But I THINK yes, you should be able to run that size with a leveling kit.

I say this because I have done a lot of research on 305/55/20. Some say they can run them on a stock truck with no rub and some need a leveling kit or small spacers. The 325/60/18 is only 0.15 inches taller and 0.79 inches wider than a 305/55/20.

Like I said, just a guess based on the numbers. Worst case scenario you get them and they rub a little. Nothing a 1/4" spacer probably wouldn't fix.
