Standard RRC tyres were 235/70 ISTR. About 29" diameter. The 265s are
about half an inch taller, which probably won't matter, but are 30mm wider.
I would expect to have to trim the wheelarches a bit to ensure they don't
modify the bodywork under full articulation.

See previous post. 31.6" tall - about 2˝" taller than standard and over an
inch wider. Expect problems if you aren't trimming the arches.
