Default Who runs 285's?

Who runs 285/75 R16 on their stock 16 x 7 rims? How do they feel? I know its possible but is it safe? I'm either going to do them or 265/75.

I've had them on since around last july and they are great tires, they seem to be wearing evenly and have very little road noise and vibration. I keep seeing more and more vehicles using these tires.

I believe I have the 4.10 gears I keep forgetting to use that chart and find out for sure though. Depending how I am driving around town I usually get 11-12 and on the highway I'll get about 17, they definitely put a big dent in my miles per gallon.
