Your motor is a 2002 grand vitara. Do you mean 255/65R16, if you do the answer is no.The diameter is at least 60mm larger than you have now so i can't see there being enough clearance for them, and they would need a wider wheel than you have now.

Hello Bob,

That's the size tyres I've got on mine, and they took quite a bit of effort to get them not to rub, including body lift, suspension lift and some new 1" forward control arms, so unless you've got a pretty modified GV, I'd have to agree with Mr Tyre, I doubt you'd be able to use them.

Here's a link to a post about mine after I fitted them. http://forum.difflock.com/viewtopic.php?t=77447&highlight=

Sorry, I've just re-read your post and noticed the ones you wanted to fit are 265x65 r16's which are a little smaller than mine. Still would have to agree with Mr Tyre though
