I would run the 285's. The cut you will have to make is only like 1/2" on the inside front of the flare. Noone would ever notice it even if you pointed it out. I didnt want to cut my truck either but I am very happy I went with 285's.

don't think they make 260's and 80 series. most of those won't work anyways.

try this.

on a stock wheel, you can go 285/70/17 or 285/75/16 with some rubbing at full lock. if you don't want any rubbing issues, go with 265's. a simple search would have given you TONS of info though. :)
