The guy at the tire joint was trying to talk me out of the 265 because they didn't match his computer. I would've loved bigger tires but I was afraid of rubbing as this is my DD. Did I make the right choice? BTW.. 2 week wait as Goodyear is out and needs to manufacture more. Also I want to get a 2" lift after the winter season. TIA!
The 285/70-17 size will work on your application and this tire size is approved for your factory 17x7.5" wheels.
The 265/70-17's are shorter than your stock tire so if you can, I would swap them for the 285/70-17's.
