Not all 265/70r17's are the same height

I've noticed that most 265/70r17 are around 31" and are usually all season or all terrain tires. I want something more aggressive, like a mud tire, only those 265/70r17's measure 31.6" to 31.9" and I dont think these will fit without trimming. If all I have to do is trim or remove the front mud flaps, its a go, since I don't have a lift anymore.(couldn't stand the drivetrain vibes) Has anybody put on a 265/70r17 mud tire like the KuhmoMT, BFGoodrichKM2, FirestoneMT or either of the Dick Cepek tires without a lift and minimal trimming?
Thanks, and I appreciate the feedback dudes.

Rich,

Come see me at 9440 South Blvd. Charlotte, NC 28273. I have the Moto 951's with 265/75/16 KM2's (same size as the 265/70/17's you're looking at) and have NO rub issues at all, even on the stock wheels.
