    Can anyone tell me the major difference between these two sizes of tires and what the advantage of one over the other is?

    I don't have a lift right now, but may in the future. Maybe a 2 inch lift, max would be a three inch lift.
    I would be getting new tires way before I get a new lift, so I am wondering what size tire to run and what the advantages of either tire may be.

    Narrower tires are better in foul weather. However, the 255-85 may be too tall for stock suspension. There are many more brand options for the 265 tire.

    You'll need to lift for the 255s = tall tire

    the 255s are 33s (33. something actually)

    And the 265s are a 32 (31. something)

    Like mentioned up top, you'd need a lift for 255/85s...but not the 265/75s :cool:
