Sounds like you have a pretty good suspension set up for the 255's. Granted I'm not talking from personal experience, but from what I've read you should be good so long as you are running at least 2.5 or better inches of lift. Although some guys still do the pinch weld mod just to be safe for when they're mixing it up on the trail. Couldn't hurt to do that mod, I know I will be doing it shortly; it's just using a BFH, a little of saw action and a shit load of machismo. :)

255s are an option but would rather regear and front lock before I get there

The 285 KM2s on stock wheels will rub the upper control arm. 1/4 inch spacer takes care of this and the lugnuts still have plenty bite.

Will barely rub the rear of the wheel well at full lock, but who really cares?

I've run the KMII's in that size...
fit better on an 8" wheel width IMO.

friend of mine runs the 255's on his dcab
using the stock 16 alloys.

He likes his skinny KMII's
He hasn't re-geared yet...
But rolls a shorter set for dd duties.
His junk is an auto... so he has it easier there.
But he did add an extra trans cooler.

I re-geared my junk to 4.88's
good thing 'cuz I swapped out my KMII's
in favor of some 295 Hankook RT03's (33.50"+)

But the 'kook's are not only tall... but wider and heavier too
and wider will require
that you become an expert at sheet metal destruction. Lol

the 255's would be my choice...
If I were rolling the stock 16" alloys
but I'd still swap the axle gears to 4.56 or 4.88

It will be easier installing the 255's, then 285's
narrower tires require less effort.
