Im planing on buying tires for my 1998 dodge 1500 5.2 club cab 4x4. It currently has the stock 265 but they also come stock in 275's... Just wondering if 285's will fit with out hitting. They should be 33 inches.

A 285/75/16 is a 33x11.5" tire. A 255/85/16 is a 33x10.5" tire. The 255 is usually an "E" rated tire, and might be a little harder to find. But it might give you a little more turning before you hit the lower control arms, and MIGHT be a little better fit for the factory 7" wide rims. Just an option I thought I'd throw out there; my 2 cents worth.
1996 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4x4 5.2/auto, Hemifever tuner, 50mm Fastman TB, Perma-lok front axle, Magnaflow muffler. 2" Skyjacker coils up front, Trail Master 2" long leaf add-a-leaf in the rear. 4.10 gears with Truetracs front and rear, Dick Cepek FC II 285/75/16" tires on 16x8" DC Torque rims. 200,000 plus miles on original engine.
mine came stock with 245's and I have 285's on there now. They rub a tiny bit at full turn on the control arms but thats it... A leveling kit wouldn't change that any, wheel spacers or different offset rims would however...
