    no you won't have any issues with that size(as long as you have wide enough wheels. Minimum 9" width, better if you have 9.5"

    You probably have 245/40/18 ... right?

    You shouldn't have any issues with 265's, are you on stock rims?

    The 265 means the height of the tire, not the width that's the 35.

    Lawdogg, it says what he's running in his post.

    Yes, you can go 265 all around.

    Yeah the 265 is the width. The 35 is the sidewall height.

    Cannot tell if this is a joke?

    I run 275's on 9" wide wheels lowered on Intrax/ECS with no problems. I have had this set-up for 3+ years.
