Tire Size

Can I put 265/75/16 on an 05 rubicon with factory wheels?

The stock size is 245/75/16

Thanks

Will it rev higher at 70 mph? Will I get worse mpg?

Yes they should fit, they are less than an inch wider and just over an inch larger in diameter. Mpgs will suffer due to increased weight, your speedo will be off by less than 3mph. As far as revving higher, I can't imagine why it would do that. However, your tires will revolve fewer times per mile, due to their larger surface area. Depending on the BS of your wheels, you may have some rubbing.

I'm not the best at the tire conversions but isn't this a taller tire? If so this should increase the gear ratio and therefor it would rev less at higher speed then the current tires.
Its very possible I have this messed up.

Agreed, I think it will affect rpm's one way or another, but I'm not sure.

The revolutions will be fewer due to larger tires.
