Measure from your axle to fender. 265 is a width that will be an issue with "the bolt" grinding or adding spacers should alleviate that.
The older models stood a bit taller with the overland option. That Does not seem to be the case with the WK's.
265/65r17's ~30.5" tall should be fine height wise.
265/70r17's ~31.6" tall will require a lift and/or pinch weld mod.
From our FAQ already posted above:
Q: What is the biggest tire you can fit without a lift?
A: Without any trimming or bolt cutting, 255/65/17, but you may have some rubbing at full lock(steering wheel turned all the way in one direction) with some tires depending on tread depth and design. The largest 18" tire you can add on the stock 18" rim without a lift is a 265/65-18.. The more aggressive looking the tread, the less clearance you will have. If you are unsure whether a tire will fit, go to a local tire chain(Big-O, Les Schwab, America's/Discount Tire Co, etc) and have them test fit that tire on both front wheels. You can then check the bolt for the Upper Control Arm(UCA), just above and to the inboard side of the front tire. Turn the steering wheel to full lock in each direction and check for the tire rubbing against the wheel well on the edges of the tire.
