the only way you'll get a 265/75 is with a lift. I'm running 265/75R17 Revo with a 2.25" lift and a little bolt trimming. I think with the BFG's in that size you'll need spacers due to the "squareness" of the tire.

a 245/75 is a stock size in the goodyear, not sure about bolt clearance with the BFG but the installer should be able to test fit, and if not you can trim it slightly - they did this for me at the shop.

Any pics of a 245/75R17 or 255/65R17 from the front or rear. I am just afraid of it looking like a rail car with the lift. I am a little hesitant on spacers.
