no way in hell i'd put a 285 on there, you'll loose performance going with a tire that's to wide for your wheel.

i'd go with a 255 or maybe a 265

What you lose in the corners you gain in the straight line.
That's actually false. The extra tire that buldges over the rim won't benefit you at all. Your contact patch is all that matters, so you'll still only be riding on about a 255-265. The extra tire will just hurt you. I'd recommend a 255/45/18 on your stock rim.

255x45 is a nice fit for your wheels.

You can put a larger tire on that 8.5" wheel but the patch of rubber that touches the pavement won't lay flat​
