Default new tires what issues will i have

ok i just ordered a set of brigestone dueler a/t tires. the net says they are a fair all around tire. good on high way and ok on the mud. now im changing the tire size, right now i have a 245/70r17( this is what the dealer put on them) i am putting on a 285/70r17. dose any one have any warning on this size or tire.will i need to flash my computer so that the speedo will read the right speed ? do i need to worry about the death wobble ( truck is a stock 09 2500 4x4 sxt) im in the el paso area so i see mostly high way driving with a few off road drives most of which will be sand.

You shouldn't have any problems at all. It's still a small enough tire so you'll clear it no problem. Death wobble is caused by improper suspension set up more than tire size so you shouldn't have any problems there.

If your speedo is correct now with the 245/70's then you will need to have it recalibrated to be correct with the 285/70's.
