    What?

    What year are you speaking of? The 16" IROC wheel is 8 inches wide, and runs a 245/50R16 tire from the factory. A 285 tire will be beyond dangerous to even try and fit on an 8" rim - and the tire itself will be almost 4" taller than the stock tire.

    So absolutely not, no.

      I would share Kyle's concerns. My factory sized 245/50/16s rub ever so slightly at lock. I can't imagine running anything much bigger.
