275 is the stock size. like he said the need for a bigger tire is rare. off roading mostly. and looks. i myself wanted bigger but will most likely stay stock or one size up, 285. had them on my'01 and they looked good. i think its mainly cosmetic. brand of tire is a whole different story. always been BFG fan and the only tire i ever used. they are a long lasting reliable tire.

Not sure how much you know about tires, but the 265s that you have relate to tire width, 265mm. You can go wider with 275 up to 295 but remember that your rims are only so wide, so going with a tire that is too wide will affect how the tires look and the contact area of the tire.

Do you want to go wider, or do you also want a taller tire? Some tire websites have a tool where you put in your vehicle info and it will show how different wheel/tire combos will look on your truck. Might want to try that out to see how it looks.

Also ask a tire shop how tall and wide you can go before you start having issues with tires rubbing the body or suspension components for you truck. Good luck.
265 is the height. 70 is the width.
