should i buy these tires?

i have 17x9 rims coming and shopping for tires. offset on the rims is zero and backspacing is at 5.0

there is a guy selling these new tires for a great price but its not 265 like i wanted its 255/75/17

will this work on my rim? my billys 5100 adj came today so i'm doing 2.5 in the front and rear tsb. so will this setup work without trimming?

i have the 255's mounted on some 17x9's..... they're a little too narrow for the wheels but they do work ok with it. you can see them in some of the pics in my gallery

i have 3" coil spacers on factory shocks now, but my bumper weighed down the front a little, probably to about 2-1/2" of lift and they only rub the frame rail very slightly on full lock when the suspension compressed a little off road. i don't have bumper clearance issues because of my bumper i built but there really shouldn't be any on the factory bumper or if there is it would be so minor it could be easily dealt with by a little trimming with a dremel tool.
