will they fit???

I bought a set of slightly used Mud Kings from a guy for 30 bucks today at Pep Boys. They are 265/70/16's...i'm curious if they will fit under a stock suspension on my 02 4x4 without rubbing...
Thanks in advance for any input...

I'm gonna say yes, since Neil has 33's on his stock FX4 L2.

Yes. I have 15x10's on mine and there is more than enough clearance.

I just noticed something. You asked about 15x8's but got 16" tires for really cheap. Why is that?

Im running 256/75's and they dont rub at all. They are definatly bigger than stock. Stock tires (at least on mine) were 245's. They are about an inch taller and a tad bit wider. Yours will be even wider since they are 70's. Anyway... yeh they should fit without any problems.
