Default tires for my stock 08 fx4

i wanna put tall narrow tires on my truck but dont know what will fit. stock tires were p255 70 r16 and im running lt265 75 r16s now. had minor rubbing issues till i wore some tread off. but where i live its really muddy in summer and really icy in winter so i figure some high profile narrows would suit me better. any suggestions? i also plan on getting spacers for my tires so they fill the fender flares out.

Do the Pre-Key mod up front and a set of Belltech 6400 shackles in the rear then get 285/75's. It'll look great.

id get wider tires but i drive a lot of pavement too and its harder on my truck with the 265s as is not to mention the terrible traction on ice considering i dont want to buy winter specific tires and how light the truck is anyway. hense tire spacers to keep a wider base but narrow high profile tires for the smaller weight displacement, which i actually prefer for rooting in the mud as well. and i do plan on lifting my truck eventually though nothing too extreme

though my ideas are just ideas. no solid resolve in anything yet. ive still got 50k till my warranty is up then im not worried about doing what i want to my truck. the basic idea is i want everything bigger but not excessive. and well set up altogether. cost is kind of a concern but i dont want cheap shit on my truck either.. any and all suggestions are welcome.

I went with the 235/85R16 Goodyear MTR's. They are actual 32" diameter and are 9.3" wide. Nice and narrow, pizza anyone! Love em for the Canadian winters and trails.
