01 2x4 tire size increase??

Can't seem to get a straight answer anywhere. My Screw has 17" stock wheels with 265x60x17 BFG Long Trails. Getting close to tire replacement time and would like to go to a 70 series tire without lifting or replacing wheels and without rubbing. All tire shops tell me that what I have is what I have to stay with but I also know they have liability and insurance issues they have to pay attention to. Anyone out there tried this or knows what my alternatives are for tires? Again it's an 01 2X4 Screw. THANKS !!

I've seen members running 285/75-16 (33x11.50) on stock 4x2s with stock and aftermarket 16x8s. So a 285/70-17 should fit since it's the same size. BFG makes this size in the MT KM and they just introduced it in the AT KO.

With a 2x4, you may have to lift it a bit to put on the 285/70/17s

I have the 265/70/17s on my truck right now (stock) and I think they would fit a 2x4. I have a 4x4 and they look too small.

Here is a tire size caculator to tell you how tall the tires would be and how much your spedometer would be off.
