Funny I was getting ready to post about this. I just put the 285's on today, and I was noticing the same thing! I thought they were pretty good with the 245's. It is weird that if you pump once it gets better?

Well, I have driven 5-6 2500HD D/A's and my truck has not so good brakes. 3 different tire sizes did not make a difference.
As the tire diameter grows so does the rotating mass. but unless you are running larger than 33" stock brakes should be ok.

On my truck the brakes feel like they are sliding and I need way to much brake pressure. Changing to more agressive pads did not help much. It is my guess it is the hydro boost system.

Funnny though, once and a while they will work great. WTF!

The ABS computer needs to be reprogrammed for the 285's.
