Will these tires fit on my rims?

I was wondering if these tires will fit on my 16" FX4 Ranger rims:
I still have the factory wranglers as you can see (245/75r16)

(with these tires):
BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A's (265/75R16)
Also, these are 32" tires if I am not mistaken, correct?

An inch is all you need, don't max them out. It will help level it out as well.

Ive got some 265 R75R16's on my truck atm, yeah they sit at 32.. and they fit perfectly.. I STILL have to Tbar crank them, but the ****ty part is.. I hav eno one around here for an alignment, so I gotta drive out 40 miles on the highway to go get it done.. I would rather call them up and ask if I can have them pop it up on their lift so I can get a quick lift out of it and have an alignment done there.. probably buy a lifetime.

I think he means just crank the bars while its on the lift, nice and level then do the alignment.

okay, new question about the same tires. I just looked at the tire size chart that is stickied in this forum and I see that the 285/75R16 size would fit as well. Would it be recommended to go this big or should I stick with the 265's?
If I were to do a 1" body lift would that change anything?

285 I think is around 33" size so you'll have to fully crank the t-bars and maybe do some trimming. A 1" body lift will give you more room, but if you offroad and flex a lot you will rub.
