some folks run those as a snow season tire, but they are unbelievably skinny. Pretty sure BFG mud terrain and Cooper st maxx are the only tires even offered in that size.

In this case going to a 265/80 would be almost the exact same height, finding an /80 would be a bit harder because its not a common size.
Sorry I misunderstood your post, people definitely do misunderstand how metric tire sizing works all the time I agree

There is not a 265/80/16 tire on the market.

Thanks I appreciate it. and you can pick up a full set of PYO's on craigslist for 250-350 bucks all day long. definitely love the way they look on the classic body style trucks. I used to consider the idea of doing an aftermarket wheel, just never found one I like enough to swap, and I'm glad I didn't now
