    yep....those tires should be fine......may have a tad bit of rubbing, but nothing serious. and for the laptop....try erasing any junk/cookies and stuff and see if that works.

    to a point maybe,but wheel spacers are all ya really need if there is any rubbing. i doubt you'll have barely any rubbing tho. but if you do get wheel spacers...................go with spidertrax.

    265 75 16 isnt going to cause a ton of rubbing for normal every day driving...you MAY have to remove your mud flaps and you MAY have to pound down the pinch weld/trim the fender liner at that point...and you MAY get some rubbing on the frame at full lock

    but you should be ok for the most part with that size tire

    if not then just get you a mild lift (like 2") and youre all set

    your all wrong. haha I have 265 75 16 bfg at's and i did about 12 separate hours of pounding on the pinch weld and inner fender to make em fit. (still rub on occasion)also had to get spacers cause they were rubbing the frame. they will fit, but your gona have to make them fit.

    so u think driving a truck like a truck is only offroad or on rigorous trails?
    i believe they made pickup trucks so you could haul stuff back and forth and not have to worry about getting your trunk or car dirty.. go buy a dunebuggy or rockcrawler
    i use my truck to haul stuff to/from college. trips to the beach, camping, snowboarding. and whatever else i feel like.
    im telling you i bought my truck with 265/75R16 on the stamp steel wheels. they never rubbed for me.

    no im just trying to bring some excitement to tw. but you are saying you don't stuff the tires up tight into the wheel well. so therefore my post is correct. they fit for everyday driving(mine still needed some pounding to fit for every day driving) but if your gona wheel it hard at all, i'd get the lift asap and don't waste time pounding.

    go look at your pinch weld, I bet it's already been done if the previous owner installed them. check it out anyways!

    i put 265/75/16s on my truck long before i lifted it and had only rubbing on the frame at full lock and that was offroad

    and trust me...i put my truck thru its paces offroad

    you'll be fine with that size without a lift and MAYBE a little pounding/trimming

    it also depends on what tire brand/model i think.
    some tires have tread that sticks out further over the edge. mine are Toyo AT. and they didnt rub. maybe BFG have more tread that reaches the frame at full lock. :drevil:

    anyone else agree?

    I ran 265/75/16's on my 2000 4x4, and never rubbed. Just the slightest bit full locked, and with the tire stuffed. Perhaps your trucks suspension was worn out?
