I would have to agree with you on the lift. I'm running 255/70r18 with my 2" lift and I have no rubbing. You would probably hit the bolt from the UCA with the 265's without a lift.

265/65 will go on without a lift and some wheel spacers. With the moabs you will need a minimum spacer of 1/4".

Im still in the process of looking and finding a lift that I want. I may not do it for months until I figure out what I want.... We will see.

Whether or not you have a lift has no bearing on the distance from the hub to the UCA bolt.
