No, this is a horrible swap. The 285 tire will be 2.77" larger in diameter. Your speedometer will show 60 mph at an actual speed of 65.07 mph.

Q: Can you replace 255 70 16 tires with a 285 75 16 and what all would be effected?

I doubt it and certainly not on the same rim. It's possible, but I would ask a tire shop pro to check it out.

That should be OK, but check carefully for any rubbing.

Absoulty not if the 255/70-16 is the OEM tire size. The 215 will be 13% smaller in overall diameter. You should never, ever go over 3% different. You would have to go to a 275/60-16 to even be close to 3% and then it would be 3.5% smaller.

Can you? Yes. Should you? No. The 235 will be 3.67% smaller. This will adversely effect your ride, handling, speedometer, and braking.

They are 255 mm wide over the treads.

No, this is a very bad swap. Your speedometer will read 57.8 at a true 60 mph. This swap will adversely effect handling, ride, and performance.

No, the 255/70-16 is too large and the diameter will be 1.10" too tall and your speedometer will be 2.2 mph too slow. You are going over 3% difference in size which is never advisable. You can use a 245/70 or a 245/60 but not a 255/70. Make sure all 4 tires are the same size on a 4wd vehicle.

The numbers to compare here are the changing widths(bead to bead) of the two tires. First, these are metric tires and the values are in millameters. The difference between the two is 50 mm. This translates into 2" inches. On a tire of this height I would say no. The tire will bulge out from the rim and you will have control problems.
