285/75/16 Bfg all terrain fit stock 16inch rims with leveling kit?

AS the title says. Will 285/75/16 bfg all terrain tires fit my 2002 f150 2wd with the stock 16 rims. I have a 1.5 inch leveling kit up front and will the tires clear without any issues?

my buddy has a 98 reg cab short bed with no lift and has 285/75/16 on stock 16 and he muds it every weekend with no rubbing. my uncle has a 2000 ext cab long bed with same tires and they do look too big for the truck but they dont hit on the street but he never goes off road so i dont know if they rub

i have a 5.4
and i haven't noticed any drop in mileage actually, all tho i never actually calculated it, it might be real tiny but like i said i haven't noticed

you will notice however a drop in "power" your acceleration will go down a bit
and your speedo will be off by about 7-10 km/h i dont know what that is in MPH sorry and thats if your factory tires were 245/75/16

i like them much better for sure
very happy but my next tire might be 265 not sure yet still have a ton of life left

Thanks, right now I have 265/75 R 16 on the truck and with the recent lift I want to go up a size. I have a hypertech programer which allows me to change the tire size on the computer and recalibrate for speedometer and that. I also have a K&N air intake. Both of those have helped with power so maybe it won't drop too much, atleast I hope.

so are you happy with the 285's? why do you want to go to 265's? do you have any pics of your truck with the 285's? the reason im asking is im getting new tires in a few days and was wondering if you liked the 285 size because i would like to go to that size. i have 265's right now

the only reason i would go 265 is cuz of money thats the only reason but i havnt really checked on prices so if these are cheaper then w/e

i got the tires for free with very little wear on them so i wasnt complaining!!!!!

and my profile pic is my truck with the 285 if you want ill take better pics tomorrow. just keep clicking the pics till you get to a big one.
