Your 255/70R16 = 30.1" x 10".

I had 265/75R16's when I was stock...with no rub...and on my stock rims. 265/75r16 = 31.6". Looked rub.....and the tires looked big. I see you have an 08...might be a good idea to crank your bars and find some 2.5" stock ranger lift blocks. Yours on your truck now are like 1.25" blocks.

How does it wheel? idk.....did pretty good with the 265's. Trailriding, mud, it pretty much blows(too low of clearence)....did well for what it was.
