Of all methods to obtain lift, a body lift is the least preferred. The one exception being a show truck that'll never ever see a trail.

You do not need to do anything to the body lift to add a suspension lift.

FWIW, I'm running DuraTracs in 265/70-16 on OEM wheels on a 2012 OR. No rubbing with stock suspension, even during full stuff and lock-to-lock offroad. ^Your tire size and mine are very close, but the extra 0.6" is what may cause the problem.

I'm running 265/70-17 which is .4" bigger than that tire on my stock set-up. I had to remove the small flaps in front of the front wheel wells because I was hitting the passenger side one when going in reverse. Other than that, no issues. You should be fine with no changes.

Except his new size (275) is approximately 0.4" wider than that. 285 series on OEM wheels is where people report more rubbing problems. Maybe it won't be a problem, but it'll be close.

265/75-16 is probably what you should get if you're trying to save money. Nothing to worry about with that size.

I personally don't think that .4" would be all that noticeable of a difference. If you were looking at 285s then you'd notice the size difference more. Do you have meaty tires right now? If not, going to meaty off-road 265s (duratracs/AT-KOs) would make a big difference in the looks.

Yeah but you're lifted, not sure if that makes a difference.

Wish I would've known I was going to lift my truck when I put new tires on a month ago....would've probably gone that size instead of 265s. Oh well, I think it'll still look fine, just not quite as good.

Yup, except I think he's shopping with a 17" wheel in mind.

I agree. Going from 265/70-16 (OEM) to 265/75-16 in DuraTrac made a difference in appearance, but the road and offroad performance differences were much more noticeable. If you're concerned about traction with a slightly narrower tire, don't be. Aired down a little, a 265 or 275 will do fine.

Well on my truck now is a 245/75/16. Sticking with stock rims. I want a beefy off road look which I get from those BFGs and I want them to last a long time.

I thought you were looking for a 17" tire; my fault.
Is that size even available in a 16" BFG KO?
