Yes, the 255 70's are taller and narrower than the 265 65's. I wanted maximum ground clearance so I went with a taller rather than wider tire. Because the 255's are narrower I was able to go up to a 70 profile for the extra tire diameter I was after. The 255's are still wide enough for good flotation and I get extra ground clearance for offroading and awesome profile.
I'm not sure but I think I had the tires on before I did the lift and the fit was about the same.
