tire size help!!

i just purchased 265/75r16
they look great hancock at ft10
but they rub just a little man what a bummer the tire shop said they would exchange them is there anything i can do? or do i need to quit thinking that my truck is lifted and get the 265/70's put back on and be thankful the tire guy is being cool.
any other advice about tires in relation to my 04 trd stock tacoma would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

do you still have your mud flaps on? is this the area you're referring too? if it is, try taking them off. are your front springs sagging?

i guess those tires run a little taller and/or wider than other brands. your only solution is to downsize as you mentioned or get some billy 5100s upfront to add a mild lift which will give you the clearance.

If its just the plastic wheel well .... Take a sharp blade to the lump of plastic that's rubbing and trim it. Nobody will even know/notice it!
