I think we tried to answer this question. Problem is there is not a firm answer. As myself and HandsOn noted, tire sizes are nominal
and not exact. It doesn't matter rather you compare metric or US sized tires, the same rules apply. It is possible a 285/75 would work from one manufacturer and then not work from a different manufacturer.
Clear as mud? My suggestion would be to work with a local tire vendor and tell them you want the biggest tire possible. Try the 285's and see if they rub. If they do have the tire dealer swap them for the next size down. Most dealers have no problems doing this.
