    I would check the tire manufacturers website to make sure that their 265/70/17's are approved for 9" wide rims.

    Those will stick out 2.75" more than stock.

    I wouldn't chance it. 8.5" is the max for a reason. If it was good for up to 9", it would say so.

    Use common sense man...

    It's the size of the tire, not the specific tire, that will prevent you from being able to safely mount them on 9" wide wheels.

    You will have no issue running a 265 Duratrac on a 9" wheel. I know everyone here is saying don't do it because Goodyear doesn't "approve" it, but trust me, I can tell you from years of tire industry experience that you'd be fine. The worst you would have to worry about is wheel rash if you curb them or scrape them on rocks, because your sidewalls will be slightly stretched.

    The manufacturer of the tire is not going to recommend it because the tires are simply not wide enough to "safely" seat on that wide of a rim.

    a 265 tire will be overstretched on a 9" rim
