    I currently have 265/70/16 and I am wondering if I can go to the 265/75/16. Will the 75's fit a stock 4x4 without rubbing or should I stay with my current size? What are the pros and cons of going to the larger tire if any. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Yea, they will fit fine. I've got the 265/75/16 BFG Mud Terrain KM2's on my 4x4.

    I am looking to go from 245/75/16 to 265/75/16 and from what I have read on the forum that should not be a problem. I just went to NTB looking at tires and they stated they would not put on the 265/75/16 mainly because it would affect the performance, aka safety, of the ABS brakes; as well as it would affect the odometer reading, etc. They suggested to go with 265/70/16. Anyone have any input on this? Is this really any kind of safety concern?
