Need Advice

Hello from Atlantic Canada.
I just bought a 2002 Se 4x4 and it came with great new 265/70/R17 tires. I know that the rig needs new shocks and i plan on buying Bilsteins. MY issue is these tires being 1" bigger than factory seem to hit the wheels in the back even with a small bump. In the front these tires seem to rub on the plastic bumper cover when turning. I would have thought that being a 70, not factory 65 should not do this.
SO, Do i have to spend the money to lift this rig, which i don't mind, I just don't want to spend a lot. And I will not be off roading with it. I just like the look of the bigger tires. and I do not want to get stuck in the many snow banks we have up here.

Thanks in Advance
Les

Those tires should fit fine with the only exception being the lip that the front mud flaps attach to, which you'll probably have to snip off. If they're hitting your front bumper it's probably sagging. If not, you could trim it. They shouldn't be hitting anything in the back. 33s fit the back.

The PML lift doesn't create room for tires FYI. Body lift or cutting are the only two options.

Thanks xtacular
Ok, So since the back seems to be sagging and you say the tires should fit, maybe the leaf springs need replacement. I could send a pic, but the rig seems low. I could ask the dealer for the specs on the height and measure it and see. Since im going with good shocks i would like to replace the leaf springs if needed at the same time.

thanks
