    Make sure the tires you choose are approved for 9" wide wheels. A lot of 265s aren't, you can find out on the manufacturers website.

    OP,
    it looks like you have the 2.7L engine??

    i have 265/70-17's on right now (i had 245/75-16's before) and it made my truck a little more sluggish. Thats something to keep in mind when your going to even bigger tires.

    No problem! ok thats what i have here 17x9. You don't have any trouble with them? I was thinking that i would have to go with a 275x60 or 65 with them. Whats your offset? My worry is to buy tires an the wheels not fit the tire right or that my -12mm offset will mess things up also.

    i don't know the offset, but they are 4.5" of backspacing for the spindle lift that i got. but with a 265 the tires look a little stretched on the rim. but no problems with them at all

    Awesome! If i was reading a chart right the -12mm offset is 4.5 back spacing. I took one of the wheels with me to work last night an mounted on with out a tire since i don't have them yet an everything looks like it will work out well! The Nitto's i'm looking at looking at the website is saying the tires will fit from 7.0, 8.0, an a 9.0 in wheel with so i'm going to give them a shot an see whats up! Thanks again ya'll for your help an input! Nice looking truck Spencer, I like them wheels!

    You should be fine then, After my lift they only rub when I'm backing out of a driveway at almost full turn
