Default 285 tires and 16 inch wheels on a stock canyon

Buddy of mine has a set of 285/75/R16 KM2's with black pro comp wheels he's trying to get rid of.

The question is could I tuck them on my 2008 GMC Canyon Z71 2WD?

I have a TB crank with a 2 inch lowering block in the rear, can be taken off if needed however.

Also I'm new to the whole wheel thing. These are 16 inch, 6x5.5 with 0 backspacin is what he is tellin me.
I dont know how backspacin works but I'm pretty sure my stock wheels are 6x139.7 and dont know if you could use wheels that are 6x5.5?

Thanks for your help.

0 backspacing?? maybe offset? but its gonna take at 2inches of lift, and then most likely will rub, will most likely need a body lift to...and some trimming.......not sure but are u lowered? dont understand why u have the block?

yea went the easy way out on raising and lowerin honestly. At first I just put a lowerin block on and the truck sat pretty level, but now i raised the torsion bars its higher in the front so I didnt have to buy lifts and stuff.

I just didnt know if Icould get away with putting 285 tires on stock.

alright ill check that out.

So basically if I take my lowerin block off and put shackles on and do my TB crank I should be able to tuck them with a little bit of scrubbin?

well there the tires and wheels for $1000 but instead of doing that, Ive thought about doing my own thing.

Maybe gettin my own set of wheels and tires, maybe just some 15x8 with 31s or somethin.

How would you tell about offset and backspacin for wheels?
