Will they clear?

I recently saw a tacoma with 265/70/R17 tires/wheels and i was wondering if they will fit under my truck without rubbing. I'm driving a 99 X-cab 4x4. I plan on cranking the T-bars a little to make the truck sit level...what do you guys think?

I've been running 265/70R17 on 17x8" Mustang GT wheels w/ a 1" Eibach spacer/adapter for over 2 years now (I'm on my third set of tires in that size, and about 65K miles.) VERY VERY minor rubbing at full-lock, otherwise no problems at all, 2wd Edge w/ very mild T-Bar crank.
