Much visible difference between P265/65 and P265/70 tires?

I have the stock P265/65/R17 Duratracs and a buddy wants my tires for his '16 'Rado.


I'm getting a 1.25 zone level kit installed this weekend so I think that should allow me to go with the slightly bigger P265/70/r17 tires (I might get the Falken Wildpeaks).


Not sure how big of a visible difference the truck gets with the slightly bigger tires, if any. Eventually, I might get a 1.5" zone lift kit and then upgrade the tires anyway (more $$$$) so I was thinking if the slightly bigger tires will still give me a somewhat 'lifted' look, I may go that route and just hold off the lift for couple of years.


Cheers!

The 70s are an inch taller than the 65s. Combined with a potentially more aggressive sidewall (the Falkens look fairly aggressive), I think you would get a slightly lifted look. If you can offset the cost of the new tires by selling the old set, that's a good bonus.

It appears by the photo that you removed the from mud flaps, if you did, was it due to rubbing?

You're exactly right....removed due to rubbing. However, as you can see from the first pic the flaps didn't do a whole lot when driving down a slightly wet dirt road. I did keep the rears on.

Personally I don't think there is a huge difference in appearance when you step up between those 2 sizes assuming both tires are equal in terms of aggressiveness. A 265/65/17 Duratrac looks a little bigger than a 265/70/17 Michelin Defender IMO. While a 265/70/17 Duratrac looks massively larger than a 265/65/17 Defender. I have a hard time seeing the difference between a 275/70/17 and a 285/70/17 sometimes. A lot depends on the tread depth and sidewall characteristics. That being said, if you're lifting the truck definitely go bigger. :)
