    the 275s are 10mm wider than the 265s. im running toyo open country m/t 275s and i love the look of a wider tire. it also depends on what size rims u like best in ur case.

    I just bought 275 /70 /16 and they are perfect. They dont rub at all not even going in and out of driveways. I parked it next to my dads truck with 285s and you can barely tell a difference. I also did not lose one bit of power. I had an FJ with 285s and there was a slight power loss but really only noticeable up hills.

    Hope that helps i was in the same boat but it was between 275 and 285. I think a 265 is going to look to small.

    275/70's would look good and you won't have any rubbing issues. As for the BFG A/T, I'd search around before buying them...there's alot of tires just as good for a cheaper price :thumbsup: As for 265's looking to small, I'm running 265/75's and I know several other guys running them w/ 3" lifts and I think it looks good...

    Yeah I wasnt saying they would cause iver never seen it. I was just assuming. I saw an FJ with 265's and they looked huge. I guess it all depends.
