265's are very slightly wider(~.3") but very slightly shorter(~.2"). Essentially they are as close to the same size tire you can get. The 265 is a common truck/large SUV tire so there are more options and may be cheaper

If I want to go wider, is there another size that will fit that size rim?

I am temped to try 275/70/17's on our stock rims. They are the same height and would be less than 1/2" wider on the rubbing side. From turning wheel and watching tire position to sway bar, it seems like they should be OK.

I thought about that too. It doesn't mess up the speedo either.
