You'd need some seriously aggressive offset to have a 285 width tire, which probably means it has to at least be a 9" wide wheel.

Without pics, I find this hard to believe.

Added: 285 doesn't leave much info to find a tire. That's just the width. What size is the wheel? What are they going on?

doesn't look that big in the pictures...

i was thinking the same thing but spec wise it is. looking at the pic it looks no bigger than my 225-50-16 tires on the 16x8 GP crosslace rims.

Still using the stock wheels? Fail.

at least they aren't steel wheels. for stock wheels they aren't hideous. but at least if he does buy new rims he won;t have to buy new tires if he sticks with the same size rim
