285 Rear Tire on stock 351M rim?

Will it fit? I want to get a tad beefier on the rear but don't want to mess anything up. If it will fit, can I still throw an 18MM spacer on the rear and not rub? I'm not lowered nor do I plan on lowering it.

275 is the maximum tire width recommended for 9" wheels!

I ran a 285 tire on stock 351 with no problems. Looked great. I had a 12mm spacer and no rubbing.

Didn't that look bulky?

Nope. 351M handles a 285 perfectly.

The 351M are 19", so I assume 285/35/19.
