Happy to help. The tire issue is a complicated thing. A 265/70 on a stock rim will not hit the fender lines but it is very VERY close to the ball joint bolt. It is way too close an can actually contact it in certain situations. That means you need a wheel spacer. The wheel spacer pushes the tire and wheel out away from the ball joint bolt but it also pushes it out toward the fender lines when turned at full lock. I had some rubbing issues with the 1.5" wheel spacers and 265/70's on the fender well. It was not bad but it nearly wore through the fender liner in the pinch weld area. The 1.375" spacer is probably the best combination with a 265/70 but rubbing may still be an issue. The 255/70's are the best of both worlds, they should clear the ball joint bolt and leave extra room. They should also stay clear of the fender lines when turned at full lock and you probably will not have to alter the pinch weld. Please keep us posted and take plenty of pics.
