LT305/65/R17 on rocky road lift

It seems like everyone that is runnin the rocky road lift (2.25) has 265/70/R17's. I was wonderin if I can go bigger if i trim the h*ll out of the wheel wells?

Can I put slightly bigger tires on, or are the 265's pushing the limit???thanks guys!

I can't wait for an answer on this one. Myself - I wouldn't do it. I have 265s and I rub the plastic fender liner on full lock even after bending the pinch welds and using a heat gun on the plastic.

I had to run spacers, mod the winch weld, mold the plastic, and have a RRO 2.25" lift with 255/75's.. so good luck with anything much bigger. And then when I stuffed the rear end it still hits.
