75 are taller then the 70's. That is why i went with my 70's cause they are wider and look meaner. They both will do.

The first measurement "265" is the width...

I thought the 265 was the height of the tire? Doesn't really matter cause i have the 70 series on my ranger and they look so good. They are defently wider then my 75's i had on the truck before.

the 265/75 and 265/70 are the same width but the 75 is an inch taller.

265/75R16 = 31.5x10.5

265/70R16 = 30.5x10.5

The 265/70 is essentially the same as a stock 245/75R16 except an inch wider.

the first number in the series will be the height(in mm). the second number is the % of the height that goes to width. 3rd # is rim size

ex: 285/75/15
285mm tall
285x.75= 213.75mm wide
15 inch rim

hope i explained well enough...

265/75/16 = 31.6x10.4/16
265/70/16 = 30.6x10.4/16
245/75/16 = 29.5x9.6/16
245/70/16 = 30.5x9.6/16
