Sledman, please post some pictures when you have time!

That certainly would be explain all the differing opinions on what size will/will not fit! Thanks for the information!

I was thinking about the same size but wasn't sure they would fit without any modifications (which I didn't want to do). I ended up installing 275/65X20 and have no rubbing issues and am very happy with the setup. I installed BFG KO2's...basically the exact same setup on my Denali HD as the one in the pic in this thread. Good to hear the 285/65 size would work too.

That's what mine measures now, I sure hope nothing rubs with the 275/65/20's or i'll be out 1500 bucks.
