gettin new tires 265 or 285

i will be gettin tires reall soon and i am debating on getting 265s or 285s. i already cranked my t bars. i drive a lot on road but when i get offroad i tend to go for the more crazy stuff that involves flexing and stuffin the tires up in the wheel wells. i plan on puttin the 2 inch lift shackles in the rear. would i need to put a one inch body lift on to clear the 285s so i dont rub when i wheel???
