I've a 2" body lift, 3" Suspension lift and a set of 32mm Wheel spacers.

I'm looking at what tyre to fit - I don't mind trimming bumper.

Would a 265 / 75 R16 in a BGD KM2 M/T look the part and drive well? I'm doing 60% Road and 40% off Road/Farm work.

A 235/85R16 is narrower and will offer more body/tyre clearance.

The difference in height between the 235/85 and 265/75 is negligible as it is just over 1mm.

Both would be very similar to a 31" off road type of tyre in terms of OD, though the 265 would have a larger bulge around the side wall if fitted to an 8" wide rim.

Any Update on what you fitted in the end.?

I take it you never went with 265/75 R 16.
On standard Diff /Final ratios that big kiils onroad performance IME.
(standard fitment being 205/70 R15..)

On my road use mostly & some offroad track and no track use full body Jimny Auto with +3" Springs and wheel arch inners removed 235/70 R 16 are as much tyre as i fit to still get articulation and no rubbing.
even those dent on road performance.
