Going with Walmart for the tires and install. Cant beat the 18 months same as cash on the card right now. Going ahead and buying the BFG Rugged Terrains in 265/70/17. If there is any rubbing, hopefully it will be minimal!
The STOCK 265/75/16 tire would therefore have 198.75 mm sidewalls....
So, 397.5 mm of total sidewall, or ~ 15.6"
Add 16" for the rim to 15.6" for the sidewall heights, and you get 31.65", about the same as the 16" stock tire as the 17" replacement tire you're planning.
IE: You are putting on a stock sized tire, the same width and height as the truck came with, from the dealer.
So, as you are installing a tire almost exactly the same size it comes with from the factory (Maybe even a little SMALLER than from the factory...), it should not rub any more than a stock tire would rub.
