After raising my kk 2 inches going after 265/70/16

I bought 255/70/16 grabber at2 and was getting a slight rub in full choke not bad but did not like the rubbing. It was damaging the plastic inner wheel well component. .

So after the small lift these wheels look small now well i mean its not the look i wanted. There is more space then i wanted. So im looking to see if 265/70/16 will fit better and get me back that beefer look i had.


I did do some measuring only concern is front of wheel near bumper i have about inch of clearence the rest is fine.

I can get ya some I have 16x8 rims with bs of 5 I have 255/70/16 and they rubbed a tad after this 2 inch lift i just feel like i have more room than i should have. That is why im considering going up 265/70/16 we ar talking less than half inch height and about a quarter inch in width about.

So you're saying your current tires rub now and you want to go bigger? How does that even make sense?

NOOOOO. I have 255/70/16 and after I did this 2 inch lift i have more room than i expected. I was wondering if 265/70/16 will fill in the wheel well better and give me the look I lost putting this lift on. I mean going to a 265 is half inch higher and quarter inch widdr correct?

They are 0.55" taller and 0.4" wider. If you don't have a clevis lift or top plates it will probably rub. Not to mention that they're going to be even heavier. Taller tires + heavier tires --> greater moment of inertia --> engine needs to work even harder.

Although you could always regear to 4.10s

Normally uploading the pics to an image hosting site like photobucket or similar works. Then you copy and paste the Img code
