265/75R16 smaller than 305/70R16?

    These 305/70R16's claim a diameter of 31.7," while these 265/75R16's are 31.9." I've seen a bunch of pics of these particular 265/75R16's fitting a stock taco just fine..

    Could I run these 305/70R16's on zero lift and stock rims? Or would there be too much rubbing because of the width of the tire? I'm willing to remove mudflaps and do a small amount of cutting.. I also have some 1.5" spacers I plan to slap on..

    With spacers they might work but my 265/75r16's come really close to rubbing on the inside of the tires sidewall. The first 3 numbers show you the width. 305 is a pretty wide tire that probably wouldn't fit on stock rims.. I'm probably going to 235/85/r16 tires on my next set for a few reasons but partly so I can run truck chains on the front again without spacers..

    Yeah they would probably rub the upper control arm without spacers. The math says that they are 32.8" so I'm guessing their info is off.

    With enough cutting, spacing, and tolerance for rubbing, you can make anything fit on anything.

    This isn't a configuration I'd recommend, however.
