You don't need a lift to run a 265

thats not true trent, when I put them on my truck they rubbed the sway bar and the splash guard, not bad but just enough to be annoying.

how much lift are you thinking about doing?

I have a 1'' bl and a 3'' torsion key and an aal in the rear it makes the 265s look real small.

265s are fine on after market rims but with the stock backspace it will rub the sway bar or at least my 255s did

265's and 3" BL, they are small but big enough to get by until you go bigger I think

I forgot that I wasn't running stock backspacing anymore, mine don't rub at all.
