2006 WK Wheel/Tire Combo Question

So my mom's WK is getting close to a tire change, I've been looking for options and due to cost and tire availability, it has been reduced to two options.

Right now it's running on 245/60R18 tires on 18'' Sahara Wheels with no apparent mods and there's no issues on fitment or rubbing.

Option one would be Toyo Proxes STII 255/50R18, but my mom is concerned the tires would look small for the wheels and would let to see too much of the wheel well (She doesn't like that 'look').

Option two would be Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus 265/60R18, the tire height is the same as the one that the truck has now and she wants that same look so this one is a bit better, but the wideness is the concern here due to rubbing issues.

Basically I'm looking for a bit of input on each tire and the 'problem' with each one, going with the Toyo's how small would they look, and the Cooper ones, Will they fit without rubbing or modding the suspension or steering components or adding a wheel spacer?

Right now the truck is stock suspension and steering-wise (no visible mods) and she would like to keep it that way, so lifting, lowering or adding spacers aren't options.

Performance and issues with the tires or pictures of same or very similar configuration are welcome.

Bumped into an old thread in here that coincidentally mentioned those wheels on a WK, I guess I'm going with the 265/60's as there's supposed to not be a significant problem with them. Maybe will update with any issues running them.

Went with the 255/50 Toyo's, they look very small, will upload pictures to the wheel tire combo sticky thread soon.
