just lifted now i need tires

ok i have a 2002 tacoma and i put 5100 billys all the way around (set the front to 2.5") and new leaf packs in the rear from hell creek suspension that gave me like 1.5" of lift. now i'm wondering what tire size i can run on my stock 16" rims. i was looking at 255/85 or 235/85 tires. right now i have 265/70. here are some pics too. so what do you guys think?

I think a 265/75 with a some what aggressive tread would look good. Are you having any rubbing issues, on frame or UCA? I was when I got my 3" lift with stock wheels.
