    Yes, factory lugs will work.
    265/70/17 is perfect, try and get an SL or C rated tire for mpgs and no calibration needed for the speedo. Also no rubbing, so your safe there. Excellent tire size over the 275s which may rub but I doubt it will in the SEMA wheels but that's an odd ball size and not much out there in terms of selection.

    Thanks, mds08. Are tire pressure requirements the same?

    No.
    P and euro metric tires require a PSI that attains a 2,149 lb load capacity. For a P265/65/17/110, it is 29 PSI.
    LT metric tires require a PSI that attains a 1,954 lb load capacity. For a LT265/70/17, it is 37 PSI.

    Gents, thanks for the feedback on the size of the tire.

    I'm a little confused about the other info though. Are those load ratings, speed ratings, etc?

    Example, if I go to , my options for the LT265/70/17 are: 112S, 118S, and 121S.

    112 = 2469 lbs.
    118 = 2910 lbs.
    121 = 3197 lbs.

    S = up to 112 mph

    Am I understanding that correctly? I'm not planning on towing or hauling anything heavy, so would guess the 112S tire at 37 psi would be most logical?

    Thanks for your input!

    You got it...

    For that tire size;
    112=C load
    118=D load
    121=E load

    They would all take 37 PSI.

    It's a matter of how much weight and stiff construction you do or don't want.
