285/75r16 tires on stock 7 inch wheels

i have an 02 350 c/c 4x4 with the original stock wheels which i think are 7 inches. want to put a set of 285/75R16's on the truck from winter. some sites say i need 7.5 or 8 inch wheels but local tire dealers say it would be okay.

would like feed back on the issue, i do also run 245/70R19.5 so the extra size is not an issue just can't afford a set of 19.5 tires.

looking for a mud and snow rated tire any suggestions???

It will be fine. I run 285/70R17E tires on my stock wheels with no issues.

Both of my pickup trucks are running 285/75R16E tires on the stock wheels. 1999 and 2000 model years...
You'll be fine with that tire on the factory wheel.

I did the same thing. Only downside for me was they wore much quicker than proper fitting tires.
