If the site says the diameter is 32.5, it is a typo. As you noted, those tires are 31.6" tall (+/- a few mm)

That's a wide tire. You'll be rubbing your body mounts unless you chop 'em.

That's the size I run on my truck with the LT kit and fiberglass.

You're talking about some tall tires. You're gonna have to trim stuff and chop the cab mounts to make any of that fit. You'll also want to regear your truck because your power and mileage are gonna drop more than you can imagine.

He said without cutting though, so 265's is correct.
