265x75x16 are 32x10.5x16 thats the same tire i have. personally i would get 285x75x16 if you want some BIG tires. but if you want something that doesnt rub stick with the 265 they will not rub

I ran 285/75r16's on my truck, didn't rub anywhere, and speedo was 3-5 mph off. On your lvl2 the 285's will NOT rub. and yes this was before i lifted it.

And who the hell said cuz its under warranty means you can't lift it? hell i have an extended warranty until 75,000 miles somewhere around there, and i just cut all the front suspension off!

you speedo will be around 3-5 depending. personally the 265x75x16 DO NOT look that big at all thats why i sayed the 285x75x16 just crank the front about 1" and you truck should be just about level. man BFG a/ts have GREAT life we're talking 60000 easy on them some people brake the 80000 mark. great in SNOW if you have to drive it alot. i will never get anything else anymore but the BFG a/t now am sold.
