According to Mickey Thompson website those only come in 17x9, and a 5in backspace, those will not work well without some mods, such as UCA's, spacers and probably cutting.
But to answer your question, a 265 should not be mounted on a 9in rim, it's too narrow.
If you do mount them on there, it is likely that you will rub, and the risk of the tire bead coming off the rim is higher.
The rubbing is going to depend on your wheel offset, backspacing, ride height of your rig, camber, etc. but bone stock & fresh suspension will likely rub with a 9in rim
I don't know what kind of driving you do, but if you're off road at all, I wouldn't go any wider than 8in with 265's.
